    It's National Hot Dog Month!

    National Hot Dog & Sausage Council

    From the above-linked National Hot Dog and Sausage Council website:

    Hot Dog Etiquette

    Everyday guidance for eating America's sacred food
    To see a video illustrating the dos and don'ts, go to www.youtube.com/hotdogcouncil.

    Don't...
    Put hot dog toppings between the hot dog and the bun. Always "dress the dog," not the bun.
    Condiments should be applied in the following order: wet condiments like mustard and chili are applied first, followed by chunky condiments like relish, onions and sauerkraut, followed by shredded cheese, followed by spices, like celery salt or pepper.

    Do...
    Serve sesame seed, poppy seed and plain buns with hot dogs. Sun-dried tomato buns or basil buns are considered gauche with franks.


    Don't...
    Use a cloth napkin to wipe your mouth when eating a hot dog. Paper is always preferable.


    Do...
    Eat hot dogs on buns with your hands. Utensils should not touch hot dogs on buns.


    Do...
    Use paper plates to serve hot dogs. Every day dishes are acceptable; china is a no-no.


    Don't...
    Take more than five bites to finish a hot dog. For foot-long wiener, seven bites are acceptable.


    Don't...
    Leave bits of bun on your plate. Eat it all.


    Don't...
    Fresh herbs on the same plate with hot dogs over-do the presentation


    Don't...
    Use ketchup on your hot dog after the age of 18.
    Mustard, relish, onions, cheese and chili are acceptable.


    Do...
    Condiments remaining on the fingers after eating a hot dog should be licked away, not washed.


    Do...
    Use multi-colored toothpicks to serve cocktail wieners. Cocktail forks are in poor taste.


    Don't...
    Send a thank you note following a hot dog barbecue. It would not be in keeping with the unpretentious nature of hot dogs.


    Don't...
    Bring wine to a hot dog barbecue. Beer, soda, lemonade and iced tea are preferable.


    Don't...
    Ever think there is a wrong time to serve hot dogs.

    Des Moines has two hot dog eateries.

    Capital Pub and Hot Dog
    I was very disappointed on many levels with this place.

    I disagree with the no condiments between hot dog and bun. Mayo is to be applied to the bun and no where else.

    There's only one brand of hot dog I've discovered I like, otherwise it's sausage dogs for me.

    Hebrew National. For sausage dogs, there's no brand preference, but bratwurst or sweet Italian sausage both work. And screw etiquette, I'll do what I want with them.

    Mayo and relish only please. Occasionally some sauerkraut. Mustard, sautéed peppers and onions on a sausage dog.

    I've never had mayo on a hot dog.

    I like natural casing hot dogs, my favorite brands are (in no particular order):

    Vienna
    Boar's Head
    Hebrew National
    Nathan's

    I like mayo and then any other combination of condiments. Relish, onions, mustard, Chile whatever. Its all good. But only natural casing hotdogs please. I prefer the ones I get from a local butcher shop. Sorry no brand name. Made by Hosely's meats of New Glarus

    If I have chili I'll put some cheese and a whole bunch of Louisiana hot sauce on it
