    "Then, steamy air blows the casings right off the dogs."

    Sounds hot.

    And no, this isn`t more complex than I thought.
    Grind the meat,
    add flavoring,
    make into paste,
    load paste into tubing,
    smoke/steam hotdog`s till cooked.

    Granted the machines are complex, but that`s just cause they`re for mass production. Everything becomes complex the faster, and more you want to put out and the level of automation you want to achieve.

    That`s super disgusting! I already knew about all of that nastiness making up hot dogs but, to actually see how they look in the process is horrifying. Plus, I can`t believe they have corn syrup in them too :\. Anyway, I shouldn`t complain because imitation meat products probably look just as gross in the making as that poo.

    So it`s someone`s job to guide a chain of hotdogs into a machine. 100`s of thousands of hotdogs run through their hands everyday.

    Two questions:

    What are their fetihes?

    And what do they dream about?

    I`ve had less mundane jobs then that and still my dreams were always related to it in one way or another.

    I`m not a fan of hotdogs, but I seriously think anyone who is disgusted by any of this is a wuss. Did it ever occur to you that far worse things go on when you DIGEST this stuff, or anything else? There`s really very little more disgusting than the inner workings of the human anatomy, especially our digestive system.

    And the meat they use is no different than the meat that gets put on your plate. Its trimming. Small pieces that were left over when certain cuts were made. Theres no cow rectums or pig genitals or anything in it. Anyone who believes that is seriously an idiot. (However some hotdog companies DO put a form of sawdust into the mix as a binder.)

    3 things
    1: That is actually a pretty good way of recycling meat, however now I know why sometimes you get that odd chunk of... something when you eat a hotdog sometimes.


    2: Agreed with Hanintp, it would be sickening to smell hotdog every day, I can eat 3 max before I start getting a headache from the smell/flavor, but I like it, its a good kind of headache


    3: I need a hot dog now.
