Buy Stock in Hot Dogs or Pepto?

My name is Chris Tafrow and I have been the director of food and beverage for the past 3 years.  I ask myself sitting at my desk… what should I write about today?  And the first thing that came to mind was hot dogs.  Man these things are great!!!  Everybody loves a nice tube steak in a bun. Weather you put relish, ketchup, or mustard on it.  It’s your hot dog and you can have it any way you want so sit back relax and enjoy it! You can have it boiled, cooked on the grill or yes… even fried.  That would be where the pepto comes in. I personally enjoy my hot dog grilled with a little bit of ketchup and relish.  I have never really been a huge mustard person, but will take mustard from time to time.  I guess it all really depends on my mood. 

Did you know?!?

    Dear Mr. Tafrow,

    You really sound like you have a passion for hot dogs! I’ve never seen a man have so much love for this type of meat.

    I have to say the Blueclaws have some of the best franks around! I like my weiner w/ all the fixings – ketchup, mustard and sour krout!

    Why is that a hot dog at home doesn’t taste half as good as one at a baseball game? What do you do to make them so delicious? Is there a secret sauce or technique you use?

    Happy Eatings!
