This Is the Proper Way to Eat a Hot Dog This July 4th
Part of what's so great about hot dogs is their simplicity. Take them out of their package, put them on a grill and, boom, everybody's favorite summer comfort food.
As you can see, this fairly easy step has many benefits. It allows the hot dog to cook without curling. It increases the surface area in which the frank can soak up a grill's charcoal goodness. It also fits easier in the bun and is more receptive to whatever regionally appropriate toppings you wish to smother your dog with.
All in all, it is this kind of innovation that makes us proud to be Americans. We can't think of a better way to celebrate the Fourth of July than with a spiral-cut hot dog.
