A Precursor To The Real Deal

Yesterday in New Jersey I had to settle for a Nathan's hot dog.  It's not my first choice, but it did hit the spot.

The only real hot dog in my opinion is a

They're the ones sold on the pushcarts (sporting the famous yellow and blue umbrellas) in New York City.  My father sold them for over 16 years from his hot dog cart, and I sold them for a short time from the hot dog cart I ran in Kentucky, of all places. 

I'll be in New York for the rest of the week so hopefully I'll have a chance to get a Sabrett - the one with the famous snap! - smothered in sauerkraut and red onions.

I loved the sharp mustard that the carts used!

Why does "email follow up" get unchecked daily?

GIL: Not sure why the email thing gets unchecked. I can't do anything about it on my end. Sorry!

The closest thing I've had to a New York dog was in Tampa at Mel's on Bush Blvd. The "Original" is a Vienna beef dog on a steamed poppy seed bun with sauerkraut, slaw, mustard, and a pickle spear. Delicious! Someday I will have one in the city. We have the famous "Bahama Mama" at Shmidt's Sausage Haus here in Columbus and other hotdogs (of all types) at "Dirty Frank's". Kentucky would have been closer, and I'm sure just as good, if you were running the joint.
