I'd do anything for a Detroit Coney right now. And I just discovered how fantastic a Sonoron Style Tucson dog can be when I visited a little over two years. I agree, with WV (also known as the North Carolina) slaw dog doesn't overly excite me. But for Connecticut- just look at NYC- it's just merely a suburb!

Mommy's kitchen with Mac & cheese, cold milk and jello. Then a warm bath and get tucked into bed.

Seriously, are we really having a juvenile argument about a juvenile food?

I agree with Mr. Hoffman 100%, but I thought he would have used a bit stronger language when the veritable institution of Connecticut Hot Dogdom was being ignored. " />
 
As far as WJ's "just merely a suburb" comment, them sound like "fightin words"!!! Looks like we may have to close off the Eastern Border, or at least, put back the tolls on that end of the state instead of on my end...
 
Just barely over the line in Connecticut (from NY),
Stan...

Actually Mac & Cheese can be considered a very adult argument nowadays

While I think NJ MAKES and sells some of the tastiest quality dogs(should be first in the decision making, I think, not just toppings.Ok, there is Super Duper Weenie in Connecticut...great toppings....it always boils down(no pun intended) to what's under those toppings....which state manufactures and sells a wide variety of great dogs...don't believe me, ask John Fox!!!!

Oh, I know New Jersey dogs are terrific. But Connecticut has some mighty fantastic ones, too. Not just Super Duper Weenie, but Rawley's, Blackies -- and I even had one at Sea Swirl recently that was topnotch. As for toppings, they're nice, but it's the dog that's important.

I agree 100% Mr H. While I'm partial to Jersey dogs, I've had some great dogs in Connecticut...and some super duper pizza!!!!!!

I humbly apologize for Connecticut's absence from the poll. " />  It belongs there (although I'm not sure I would rate it #1). As a resident who eats Connecticut hot dogs all the time, I guess I am just too close to them to have remembered to include them in the poll. The poll itself can't be changed, but maybe I can change the title to "#1 Hot Dog Destination (Other Than Connecticut)." If we do a similar poll about #1 Pizza place, you can be sure I won't forget again!

Detroit and many other cities in lower Michigan have a serious hot dog (coney) culture.  Chili dogs and slaw dogs are a state wide obsession in West Virginia.  And don't knock the Sonoran dogs in Tucson until you tried them.  Personally, I love them!
 
Having said all that, I think the best hot dogs come from New Jersey.

New Jersey with Connecticut and New York upstate right behind. All 3 have great quality dogs. Jersey has more variety. Nowhere else can you find an authentic Newark style Italian Hot Dog. We also have Texas Weiners (2 varieties), dirty water dogs, deep fried, grilled all beef, grilled mixed meat, and a lot of small butcher shops and delis that make their own. THumann's, Schickhaus, Best's, Schmalz, Sabrett, are just a few of our brands.
 
I was at Super Duper Weenie last Thursday. Gary is switching back to Hummel from the Sabrett beef/pork he is using. He stopped using Hummels because he detected a weird taste that he claims is no longer there. I had the new Hummels which he will be serving in 2 weeks next to the Sbrett beef/pork and a butcher shop dog that a guy dropped off. The Hummels was the best of the three. Then the butcher shop dog. The dog from Sabrett tasted mild compared to the other 2. I love Super Duper Weenie. I've been to many places in CT including SDW, Rosco's, Blackie's, Capitol Lunch, Glenwood Drive In, Swanky Franks, Danny's, Rawley's, Mac's Canteen, and a few others. A great hot dog state.

We grilled a mess of Hofmann natural casing franks yesterday, with burgers and babyback ribs. All the hotdogs were eaten up, and we had a ton of ribs and burgers left over.
This picture is off the Hofmann website, but that's what they actually look like.

I'm happy to see someone above mentioned Thumann's. They're my favorite natural cased dog and I'm happy to say they're available in Dallas.
 
However, as a guy raised in NYC, I'm afraid I do not get this "Coney" thing. And, as a guy living in Texas for the past 51 years, Chili (without beans) belongs in a bowel with onions and shredded cheddar and topped with hot sauce. Not a on a hot dog!

I do believe that it's all going to get into a bowel eventually.

Nice to see Upstate NY get some props.  John Fox - you know Sahlens, Zweigles and Hofmann by proxy through packaged dogs. It is quite the experience to have each in its own natural habitat: a properly charcoal grilled Sahlens foot long at Ted's...a Hofmann snappy at Heide's...or Zweigles at a half dozen places in Rochester.

Chicago and the surrounding suburbs are home to 1800 hot dog stands. David Berg was the first Chicago hot dog company in 1860, followed by Vienna Beef in 1893. Chicago made hot dogs are 100% beef, hickory smoked, using no phosphates, soy, fillers, food coloring, or additives. Hot Dogs are one of three Chicago food groups, besides Italian beef and pizza. When you meet a Chicagoan for the first time, you always ask the following three questions:
1. What high school did you attend?
2. What church or synagogue was your house of worship?
3. What's your favorite hot dog stand?
We've never seen kraut, red onion sauce, chili, or slaw on a hot dog. Here, we eat them Chicago style or classic (mustard, onions, relish, and sport peppers) on a plain bun.
 
Michael S, no need to apologize. You're a Chicago boy!

Oh come now, some of these votes...what are you eating? Ball park brand dogs??????? This poll is off by over 20%...check out John Fox and co.'s article below for the obvious winner!!!  Turn to page 34....hot dogs are more than a cheap dog with good toppings.......as I've had too often in some of those cities....but Jersey has scores and scores of top quality places......

I wonder if they had dead people vote. I'll bet the late Mayor Daley voted a few times.

Every Contingent member voted at least ten times and can vote another ten times to up the Chicago percentage. Ball Park, what's that? The number one retail brand in Chicago grocery stores is Vienna Beef, as it is in the hot dog stands.

It's the same process they use for their elections.
