My favorite are Casper's but they might be a California Bay Area thing. Nathan's are good. I did find the Kroger's Private Select beef brisket hot dogs to be really good. Boars Head and Alpine Meats are also favorites.

An old guy I used to work with and who was a butcher when he was younger use to always mumble “lips and azzholes” every time he saw someone eating a hotdog.

I haven’t been able to eat one since.

Applegate Farms are usually highly rated. Hot dogs labeled uncured and all natural, organic, no hormones, etc. will be healthiest. As far as flavor, that may be a different matter. Frankly, a few preservatives won't dissuade me. I figure it will leave me with a better preserved corpse. I know hot dogs are allowed by law to have some...interesting ingredients. Just adds flavor Best hot dog I ever had was bright red, and had a real snap to the casing. I don't know who made it, but it was a different animal to be sure...no pun intended. A Guy

My favorite hotdogs (not including all varieties of Johnsonville Brat's) is Hebrew National. Have to be cook on a stick, over a real wood fire (no gas or charcoal).

And if you're a hotdog fan (you're apparently ok with everything that goes in them), try thick-cut Bologna (any brand, whatever you'r favorite is). Have it cut about 3/8 inch thick at the deli. Score the surface, and throw it on the grill with the hamburgers.

There is a small town in the thumb area of Michigan called Yale. Every summer they have the Yale Bologna festival as the town was known for its meat plant that made such stuff. They always have the food tent that grilles thick cut slices of bologna and also grilles half sections of ring bologna that they put on a stick. Good stuff!
As far as hot dogs go one other brand that is really good are Koegles, not sure if I spelled that right. They are famous for being the preferred hot dog for the coney islands that usually use the ones with casings but also come without the skin. They have that great snap when you bite them and also taste great.

Sometimes I would catch them on sale for $3.69 for example. I may stock up with a few packs.

Now I see them selling at $2.89 regular price at Walmart. Not on sale, but regular price.

So what did they take out in terms of quality? Food prices normally goes up, correct?
I would recommend trying the Vienna beef hotdogs. They are all beef, seasoned well and have that nice snap when you bite into them. The company has been making them for over a hundred years. The brand is pretty famous in the midwest and the dog is the key ingredient in a Chicago style hot dog. They are delish! Just don't put ketchup on it

This has been a surprisingly interesting thread so far. I've had a difficult time finding really good hot dogs over the last few years. Some of the best ones I've ever had were from a locally owned grocery place in the '90s that is no longer around. I can't remember the brand, but they came in long strings with the packaging twisted together and they were amazing. Can't find them like that anymore. The closest I've found are CO-OP Centsibles and even they aren't quite as good. So I'll keep my eyes open for some of the ones you guys have suggested, if they're available in my area.

If/when I make a trip to the States, I will definitely make it my goal to try different hot dogs along the way.
