Anyone who knows me knows that I love hot dogs, and New York has plenty of the finest (assuming a hot dog can be described as ‘fine’). Fellow Brooklyn resident Kristen Donnelly has the definitive list of the best hot dogs, taste tested the right way.
Because the fire marshal wouldn’t let us set up a Weber in our midtown NYC offices, the dogs were pan-steamed in a bit of water until the liquid evaporated, and then browned in the pan.
- Best SuperMarket Hot Dog: Nathan’s Bigger Than The Bun
- Best Sausage-like Hot Dog: Brooklyn Cured’s ‘Uncured’
- Best Specialty Hot Dog: The Brooklyn Hot Dog Company’s Classic Beef Dog
- Best Poultry Hot Dog: Jennie-O Turkey Franks (actually tastes like a hot dog)
