Roller Grills - Why the stigma? Sat, 09/3/11 7:42 AM (permalink)
Now...  I'm not saving I'm an advocate of, nor opposed to a roller grill, but there - IS - a certain stigma attached to roller grills...  And I'm not sure why...
It seems to me that the majority of Hot Dog Joints use a flat-top steel grill to cook their franks.  I'm guessing because of ease of maintenance & cleanup.  Face it - deep fryers, charcoal grills & gas grills require quite a bit more maintenance - because of their design...
So...  You start with a flat-top grill & you soon realize - "Hey...  If I add motorized rollers to this thing - I won't have to keep rotating the hot dogs by hand to grill them evenly on all sides!"
Now this, obviously, locks you into casing-less hot dogs or hot dogs with a collagen casing  (Does - ANYONE - know of any hot dog manufacturers who use a  collagen casing?) as natural casing hot dogs are curved & won't roll properly...
So it seems that roller grills are a time saving device - so I gotta ask...
Why the stigma?!?!
