A cooked hot dog on a bun garnished
beef, chicken or combinations thereof and bread
dogs are often pink but may be brown.
hot dog, also spelled hotdog and also
known as a frankfurter
or wiener, is a
moist sausage of soft,
even texture and flavor, often made from meat
needed] typically beef
and pork, though some recent
varieties substitute chicken
Most types are fully cooked, cured
dogs are most often served hot in hot
dog buns, which are special soft, sliced rolls.
They may be garnished
with mustard, ketchup, onion, mayonnaise, relish,
cheese, bacon, chili or sauerkraut.
Some hot dogs are bland, while others are highly seasoned.
"home-cooked" hot dog with mayonnaise, onion,
about hot dog invention are difficult to assess, as
stories assert the creation of the sausage, the placing
of the sausage (or another kind of sausage) on bread
or a bun as finger food, the popularization of the
existing dish, or the application of the name "hot
dog" to a sausage and bun combination most commonly
used with ketchup or mustard and sometimes relish.
word frankfurter comes from Frankfurt,
Germany, where pork sausages
served in a bun similar to hot dogs originated.
These sausages, Frankfurter Würstchen, were
known since the 13th century and given to the people
on the event of imperial coronations, starting with
the coronation of Maximilian
II, Holy Roman Emperor as King. Wiener
refers to Vienna,
Austria, whose German
name is "Wien", home to a sausage made of a mixture
of pork and beef
(cf. Hamburger, whose
name also derives from a German-speaking city). Johann
Georg Lahner, a 18th/19th century butcher from the
city of Coburg is said
to have brought the Frankfurter Würstchen to
Vienna, where he added beef to the mixture and simply
called it Frankfurter.
Nowadays, in German speaking countries, except Austria,
hot dog sausages are called Wiener or Wiener
Würstchen (Würstchen means "little sausage"),
in differentiation to the original pork only mixture
from Frankfurt. In Swiss
German, it is called Wienerli, while in
Austria the terms Frankfurter or Frankfurter
Würstel are used.
1870, on Coney Island,
German immigrant Charles Feltman began selling sausages
have supposedly invented the hot dog. The idea of
a hot dog on a bun is ascribed to the wife of a German
named Antonoine Feuchtwanger, who sold hot dogs on
the streets of St.
Louis, Missouri, in 1880, because his customers
kept taking the white gloves handed to them for eating
without burning their hands.
Anton Ludwig Feuchtwanger, a Bavarian sausage seller,
is said to have served sausages in rolls at the World's
Fair–either the 1893 World's
Columbian Exposition in Chicago or the 1904 Louisiana
Purchase Exposition in St Louis–again
allegedly because the white gloves he gave to customers
so that they could eat his hot sausages in comfort
began to disappear as souvenirs.
association between hot dogs and baseball began as
early as 1893 with Chris
von der Ahe, a German immigrant who owned not
only the St.
Louis Browns, but also an amusement park.
M Stevens Inc., founded in 1889, serviced major sports
venues with hot dogs and other refreshments, making
Stevens known as the "King of Sports Concessions"
in the US.
1916, an employee of Feltman's named Nathan
Handwerker was encouraged by celebrity clients
Eddie Cantor and
Jimmy Durante to
go into business in competition with his former employer.
Handwerker undercut Feltman's by charging five cents
for a hot dog when his former employer was charging
an earlier time in food regulation the hot dog suspect,
Handwerker made sure that men wearing surgeon's smocks
were seen eating at Nathan's
Famous to reassure potential customers.
term "dog" has been used as a synonym for sausage
since 1884 and accusations that sausage makers used
dog meat date to at least
to a myth, the use of the complete phrase "hot
dog" in reference to sausage was coined by the newspaper
Aloysius "TAD" Dorgan around 1900 in a cartoon
recording the sale of hot dogs during a New
York Giants baseball game at the Polo
However, TAD's earliest usage of "hot dog" was not
in reference to a baseball game at the Polo Grounds,
but to a bicycle race at Madison
Square Garden, in The
New York Evening Journal December 12, 1906,
by which time the term "hot dog" in reference to sausage
was already in use.
In addition, no copy of the apocryphal cartoon has
ever been found.

and/or beef are the traditional meats used in hot
dogs. Less expensive hot dogs are often made from
chicken or turkey, using low cost mechanically
separated poultry. Hot dogs often have high sodium,
fat and nitrite
content, ingredients linked to health problems. Changes
in meat technology and dietary preferences have led
manufacturers to use turkey, chicken, vegetarian meat
substitutes, and to lower the salt content.
a manufacturer produces two types of hot dogs, "wieners"
tend to contain pork and are blander, while "franks"
tend to be all beef and more strongly seasoned.
a list of regional differences in hot dog preparation
and condiments, see Hot
hot dog condiments include ketchup, mustard, pickle
relish, coleslaw, sauerkraut,
onion, mayonnaise, lettuce, tomato, cheese and chili
peppers. They are served in a bun.
National Sausage and Hot Dog Council US in 2005 found
mustard to be the most popular condiment (32 percent).
"Twenty-three percent of Americans said they preferred
came in third at 17 percent, followed by relish (9
percent) and onions (7 percent). Southerners showed
the strongest preference for chili, while Midwesterners
showed the greatest affinity for ketchup."
dogs are prepared commercially by mixing the ingredients
(meats, spices, binders and fillers) in vats where
rapidly moving blades grind and mix the ingredients
in the same operation. This mixture is forced through
tubes into casings for cooking. Most hot dogs sold
in the US are "skinless" as opposed to more expensive
"natural casing" hot dogs.
cooking hot dogs
dogs are prepared and eaten in a variety of ways.
The wieners may be boiled, grilled, fried, steamed,
broiled, baked, or microwaved.
The cooked wiener may be served on a bun (usually
topped with condiments), or it may be used as an ingredient
in another dish.
casing hot dogs
with most sausages, hot dogs must be in a casing to
be cooked. Traditional casing is made from the small
intestines of sheep.
The products are known as "natural casing" hot dogs
These hot dogs have firmer texture and a "snap" that
releases juices and flavor when the product is bitten.
casings are expensive in commercial quantities in
the US, so kosher hot dogs are usually skinless or
made with reconstituted collagen casings.
of the more recent developments in hot dog preparation:
The hot dog toaster.
hot dogs must use a casing in the cooking process
when the product is manufactured, but the casing is
usually a long tube of thin cellulose that is removed
between cooking and packaging. This process was invented
in Chicago in 1925.
hot dogs vary in the texture of the product surface
but have a softer "bite" than natural casing hot dogs.
Skinless hot dogs are more uniform in shape and size
than natural casing hot dogs and less expensive.
other sausages which may be sold uncooked, hot dogs
are precooked before packaging. Hot dogs can be eaten
without additional cooking, although they are usually
warmed before serving. Because an unopened, packaged
hot dog can have listeriosis
bacteria, it is safer to heat them, especially for
pregnant women and those with suppressed immune systems.

consuming one 50-gram serving of processed meat —
about one hot dog — every day increases risk of colorectal

dogs present a significant choking
risk, especially for children. A study in the U.S.
found that 17% of food-related asphyxiations among
children younger than 10 years of age were caused
by hot dogs.
Their size, shape and texture make them difficult
to expel from the windpipe. This risk can be reduced

for hot dogs
have been many nicknames for hot dogs that have popped
up over the years. A hot dog can often be seen under
the names of frankfurter, frank, red hot, wiener,
weenie, durger, coney,
or just "dog".
dog stands and trucks sell hot dogs at street
and highway locations. Wandering hot dog vendors sell
their product in baseball
parks. At convenience stores, hot dogs are kept heated
on rotating grills. 7-Eleven

hot dogs popular in New Jersey include peppers,
onions, and potatoes. Meaty Michigan
hot dogs are popular in upstate New York (as are
hots), while beefy Coney

parks have signature hot dogs, such as Fenway

Massachusetts and Dodger

Stadium in Los Angeles,
California. The Fenway
signature is that the hot dog is boiled and grilled
Fenway-style, and then served on a New England-style
bun, covered with mustard and relish. Often during
Red Sox games, vendors traverse the stadium selling
the hot dogs plain, giving customers the choice of
adding the condiments.[citation

most of the world, "hot dog" is recognized as a sausage
in a bun, but the type varies considerably. The name
is applied to something that would not be described
as a hot dog in the United States. For example, in
New Zealand, it refers
to a battered sausage, often on a stick, and the version
in a bun is called an "American hot dog".
longest hot dog created was 60 m (196.85 ft),
which rested within a 60.3 m bun. The hot dog was
prepared by Shizuoka Meat Producers for the All-Japan
Bread Association, which baked the bun and coordinated
the event, including official measurement for the
world record. The hot dog and bun were the center
of a media event in celebration of the Association's
50th anniversary on August 4, 2006, at the Akasaka
Prince Hotel, Tokyo, Japan.

dogs are also popular in areas that have large Mexican-American
populations, such as California,
Texas and Arizona.
In California, regional chains such as Pink's
and Original Tommy's
specialize in chili dogs and chili burgers. A major
difference between chili dogs in the Southwestern United
States and Coneys is that Southwestern chili dogs have
spicier chili and are served with brown mustard or no
mustard at all, whereas Coneys have spicier dogs and
are usually served with yellow mustard. A Sonoran
dog, served in Arizona, is a chili dog that also contains
bacon and salsa.

is some debate as to the exact origins of
the corn dog; they appeared in some forms
in the US by the 1920s, and were popularized
nationally in the 1940s. A US patent filed
in 1927, granted in 1929, for a Combined
Dipping, Cooking, and Article Holding Apparatus,
describes corn dogs, among other fried food
impaled on a stick; it reads in part:

pork bratwurst with sauerkraut and mustard,
bratwurst is a sausage
usually composed of veal,
name is German,
derived from Old
High German brätwurst, from brät-,
which is finely chopped meat and -wurst,
needed] Though the brat
in bratwurst describes the way the sausages
are made, it is often misconstrued to be derived
from the German verb "braten", which means to
pan fry or roast.
Bratwurst are usually grilled and sometimes
cooked in broth or beer.
practices and traditions
the sausage is served varies by region. In Thuringia,
it is often eaten with hot German mustard
in a bread roll or Brötchen. There and further
south, the bratwurst is often served "pinched"
in a bread roll, much like a forerunner of the
dog in a bun. It is a very popular form
food in German-speaking countries, often
cooked and sold from small stands and street
vendors. Recipes for the sausage can also vary;
some sources list over forty different varieties
of German bratwurst.
giant wurst-and-bun statue can be found at the
main intersection of Holzhausen,
the location of the German Bratwurst Museum
(Deutsches Bratwurstmuseum). The museum,
run by the Friends of Thuringian Bratwurst,
opened in 2006 and is devoted only to the Thuringian
oldest document in the museum mentions bratwurst
for the first time in 1404 in Thuringia. In
1410 followed the County of Katzenelnbogen.
originating in the city of Coburg
It is made from a minimum of 15% veal or beef,
and its seasonings include only salt, pepper,
nutmeg, and lemon zest. It is coarse in texture
and measures about 25 cm in length. Traditionally
it is grilled over pinecones and served in
a bread roll (Brötchen).
relatively long (10–20 cm), thick, coarse
sausage, originating from the Franconia
(Franken) region. It dates back to 1573.
The Fränkische Bratwurst is traditionally
served with sauerkraut or potato salad, but
with no mustard.
Kulmbacher Bratwurst, from the city of Kulmbach
in Bavaria, is made mainly from finely ground
veal. It is long and thin.
small, thin bratwurst from the city of Nürnberg.
It is no longer than 7–9 cm and weighs
no more than 25 g. It is traditionally grilled
over a beechwood fire and served in sets of
6 or 12 with horseradish and sauerkraut or
potato salad. Perhaps the most popular sausage
in Germany, Nürnberger Bratwürste /
Nürnberger Rostbratwürste is also protected
under EU law with PGI status.
Traditionally roasted and served three abreast
on a bun with mustard, this pork-based
wurst is recognized in markets and
restaurants across Germany. Fresh marjoram
and ground caraway
seed are attributed to being among the important
ingredients in this distinctive sausage.
Nordhessische Bratwurst (from Northern Hessen)
is similar to the Thüringer Rostbratwurst
in taste. It is made from coarsely ground
pork and is heavily seasoned. It measures
around 20 cm in length. Traditionally,
it is grilled over a wood fire and served
on a cut-open roll with mustard.
Rote Wurst is a favorite Bratwurst of the
Swabian region. It is similar to the Bockwurst,
and is made from finely ground pork and bacon.
Its taste is spicy. To prevent splitting during
grilling or pan frying, an X is cut into the
ends of the sausage. The ends open during
cooking, but the rest of the sausage remains
intact, giving it its traditional shape.
Thüringer Rostbratwurst is a spicy sausage
from Thüringen. It is the oldest known Bratwurst
in Germany and dates back to 1404. It is long
(15–20 cm) and thin in shape. Traditionally,
it is grilled over a charcoal fire and eaten
with mustard and bread.
Würzburger Bratwurst, also known as the Winzerbratwurst,
comes from the city of Würzburg.
Its size is similar to the Thüringer Rostbratwurst,
but its ingredients include white Franken-Wine.
the United States
is a common type of sausage in the United
States, especially in the state of Wisconsin,
where the largest ancestry group is German.
Originally brought to North America by German
immigrants, it is a common sight at summer cookouts,
alongside the famous hot dog. It is also the
origin of the "beer brat", a regional favorite
where the bratwurst are poached in beer (generally
a combination of a pilsner style, with butter
and onions) prior to grilling over charcoal.
bratwurst was popularized in Sheboygan
County, Wisconsin in the 1920s. In general,
each local butcher shop would take orders and
hand make bratwurst fresh to be picked up on
a particular day. The fat content of the sausages
was substantial, making daily pick up necessary
to avoid spoilage. Much of the fat was removed
during the cooking over charcoal. Usually one
kept a pan of cold water handy to the grill,
so it was easy to dip one's fingers in and fling
the water onto the flames caused by the burning
of the excess fat.
bratwurst (or "brat") also became popular as
a mainstay of sports stadiums after Bill Sperling
introduced bratwurst to Major
League Baseball in Milwaukee
County Stadium in 1953. The bratwurst were
such a hit, Sperling said, that Duke
Snider of the Brooklyn
Dodgers took a case back to New York, and
the rest is history. Currently Miller
Park in Milwaukee,
Wisconsin is the only baseball stadium that
sells more bratwurst than hot dogs.
San Clemente is a city in Orange County, California,
United States. As of 2005, the city population
was 65,338. Located six miles south of San Juan
Capistrano at the southern tip of the county,
it is roughly equidistant from San Diego and
Los Angeles. The north entrance to Marine Corps
Base Camp Pendleton (known as the "Christianitos
Gate") is located in San Clemente.
Prior to the arrival of the Spanish, the area
was inhabited by what came to be known as the
Juaneño Indians. After the founding of Mission
San Juan Capistrano, the local natives were
conscripted to work for the mission. The city
of San Clemente was founded in 1925 by real
estate developer (and former mayor of Seattle)
Ole Hanson who named it San Clemente after a
town in Spain. As it were, San Clemente Island
was named after the city later since it is directly
west of the coast. Hanson envisioned it as a
Spanish-style coastal resort town, a "Spanish
Village by the Sea." In an unprecedented move,
he had a clause added to the deeds requiring
all building plans to be submitted to an architectural
review board in an effort to ensure that future
development would retain some Spanish-style
influence (for example, for many years it was
required that all new buildings in the downtown
area have red tile roofs). It was incorporated
in 1928 with a council-manager government.
Nixon's "Western White House" In 1968 President
Richard Nixon bought the H. H. Cotton estate,
one of the original homes built by one of Hanson's
partners. Nixon called it "La Casa Pacifica,"
but it was nicknamed the "Western White House",
a term now commonly used for a President's vacation
home. It sits above one of the West Coast's
premier surfing spots, Trestles, and just north
of historic surfing beach San Onofre. During
Nixon's tenure it was visited by many world
leaders , including Soviet Premier Leonid Brezhnev,
Mexican President Gustavo Díaz Ordaz, Japanese
Prime Minister Eisaku Sato, and Henry Kissinger,
as well as businessman Bebe Rebozo. Following
his resignation, Nixon retired to San Clemente
to write his memoirs. He later sold the home
and moved to Park Ridge, New Jersey. The property
also has historical tie to the democratic side
of the aisle; prior to Nixon's tenure at the
estate, H.H. Cotton was known to host Franklin
D. Roosevelt, who would visit to play cards
in a small outbuilding overlooking the Pacific
Surfing legacy San Clemente catches swells
all year long. Going from South to North, they
include Trestles (technically just south of
the city line), North Gate, State Park, Riviera,
Lasuen, The Hole, Beach House, T-Street, The
Pier, 204, North Beach, and Poche. San Clemente
is also the surfing media capital of the world
as well as a premier surfing destination. It
is home to Surfing Magazine, The Surfer's Journal,
and Longboard Magazine, with Surfer Magazine
just up the freeway in San Juan Capistrano.
The city has a large concentration of surfboard
shapers and manufacturers. Additionally, many
world renowned surfers were raised in San Clemente
or took up long-term residence in town, including
Hobie Alter, Jr., Shane Beschen, Gavin Beschen,
Matt Archbold, Christian Fletcher, Mike Parsons
(originally from Laguna Beach), Colin McPhillips,
Rocky Sabo, Colleen Mehlberg, Greg Long, Dino
Andino, Chris Ward, and many, many others. San

Orange County is a county in Southern California, United
States. Its county seat is Santa Ana. According to the
2000 Census, its population was 2,846,289, making it
the second most populous county in the state of California,
and the fifth most populous in the United States. The
state of California estimates its population as of 2007
to be 3,098,121 people, dropping its rank to third,
behind San Diego County. Thirty-four incorporated cities
are located in Orange County; the newest is Aliso Viejo.
Unlike many other large centers of population in the
United States, Orange County uses its county name as
its source of identification whereas other places in
the country are identified by the large city that is
closest to them. This is because there is no defined
center to Orange County like there is in other areas
which have one distinct large city. Five Orange County
cities have populations exceeding 170,000 while no cities
in the county have populations surpassing 360,000. Seven
of these cities are among the 200 largest cities in
the United States.
Orange County is also famous as a tourist destination,
as the county is home to such attractions as Disneyland
and Knott's Berry Farm, as well as sandy beaches for
swimming and surfing, yacht harbors for sailing and
pleasure boating, and extensive area devoted to parks
and open space for golf, tennis, hiking, kayaking, cycling,
skateboarding, and other outdoor recreation. It is at
the center of Southern California's Tech Coast, with
Irvine being the primary business hub.
The average price of a home in Orange County is $541,000.
Orange County is the home of a vast number of major
industries and service organizations. As an integral
part of the second largest market in America, this highly
diversified region has become a Mecca for talented individuals
in virtually every field imaginable. Indeed the colorful
pageant of human history continues to unfold here; for
perhaps in no other place on earth is there an environment
more conducive to innovative thinking, creativity and
growth than this exciting, sun bathed valley stretching
between the mountains and the sea in Orange County.
Orange County was Created March 11 1889, from part of
Los Angeles County, and, according to tradition, so
named because of the flourishing orange culture. Orange,
however, was and is a commonplace name in the United
States, used originally in honor of the Prince of Orange,
son-in-law of King George II of England.
