I've been a Nathans hotdog fan a long time, but in my recent pickup order the store had to do a substitution.  In place of Nathans I got the quarter pound Hebrew National dogs.  They are huge! And super good, especially paired with Kings Hawaiian hotdog buns even though they are too small.  I'm going to put in another order for them so I have them stocked in my freezer during the coming meat shortage. Normally I don't eat many hotdogs, but this summer I'm going to allow myself all the hotdogs (and bacon) I can eat.

Of course, of course. The Hebrews are huge. And taste better. We're known for that...and always have been... wink

 Both companies founded by New York immigrant Jews, Nathan's from Poland, Hebrew National from Russia.  It's all good smile

Not a hot dog guy. Got sick on hot dogs and beans as a kid, so I probably ate fewer than the average American.

I grew up on Oscar Meyer, which is like the white bread of franks/wieners/hot dogs. They also made Smokie Links. A buck apiece at Cub games. Miss that.

We also had Vienna dogs, too. All of those brands of meat products are made in Chicago. I used to pass the Oscar Meyer plant on the 'L' every day. Parking lot was full of Wienermobiles.

Yeah, it's all good, if you like the more spicy, Jewish-style, Kosher dogs. I am Polish, Russian, German, and Lithuanian...and all Heeb. I should like spicy Kosher dogs, but I don't.

And just for the record, my reply was actually a dirty joke.evileye

I have always liked brats best but that's probably from my Wisconsin heritage.

Yeah, brats were always an upper Midwest thing. Places like Wisconsin and Minnesota, which are German and Scandinavian.

Chicago? Not so much. We were more of a hot dog town.

Believe it or not, I don't think I ever had a brat until I was 32 and started dating my first wife.

Had my first one at her folks' house. Her Norwegian father was born and raised in Duluth.

 I'm sad there won't be a state fair this year because they always have them there.

I'm not. I don't like crowds.

 Neither do I but sometimes I do things out of my comfort zone. For example, I don't like crowds but I like the games, animals, and food at the State Fair. If I stayed home because I don't like crowds I would miss those other things.

I'm not big on going to fairs either, not even the big state fair, but when my mom was alive I took her every year after it became too difficult for my father to go. Even when he did take her, we would often take her, or her us when we were kids, for a second visit as visiting the fair with Dad was never much fun. He managed to make every stinking thing stressful.

Oh yeah, brats are terrible! Yuck!

I don't know what it is about brats, I don't like the taste or the texture, but mostly they upset my stomach.  It's a mystery.

There's no accounting for taste.
