Hot Dog Eaters In Chicago Have Horrible Taste Buds, Apply Ketchup On Their Hot Dogs

Submitted by: rumham 1 year ago in Funny


I'm from the Pittsburgh area so Heinz ketchup is a universal thing -- I love the jalapeno ketchup.

Side question: What do you put on your dog?

Second side question: Is it Catsup or Ketchup?

Hot Dog Connoisseur here.
Bare Minimalism: mustard only.
The perfect Hot Dog: Mustard, Ketchup, Chili, Cheese, Sauerkraut & Onion.
Weirdest Hot Dog I ever had: Mustard, Ketchup, Chili, Cheese, Sauerkraut, Onion and Gummy Bears.

How I prepare hot dogs:
I take a foil pan and put it on the grill over low heat, add onion sauce and hot dogs (Nathan's Famous, preferred).  Let them cook to warm (can literally stay for hours...real handy at a pool party). 

When I'm ready to serve the hot dogs, I remove them from the pan and place them on the other side of the grill, which is flaming hot, and give them a good sear.

Place on bun and enjoy.

I'll just explain the advantage of mayonnaise on hotdogs.
Mayonnaise has a mild flavour that doesn't interfere with the other toppings or the dog.

Also, it acts as a mortar keeping the onions and jalapeños and whatever from falling out when you hold it.

Lubricant. Helps to slide down the throat if you get a dry bun.

Tofu Pup guy here...Classic Ketchup and Mustard.  However, recently I've been into Mayo and Mustard only.  Weird right...

I'm from NYC so of course a Sabrette with  sauerkraut  and mustard is the way to go. Now that I'm in upstate SC, if you don't remember to tell them your dog will come with chili. I've come to like the SC dog, Chili onions and cheese.
As to what they're made from? Everyone knows it's LL&P! Lips, Lungs and peckers.

fancylad most food companies try different concoctions to boost sales.  I had the Tabasco ketchup and liked it, I wouldn't pay extra for it.  I can add it if I want to since I always have both in the house.

Siracha is great stuff.  My brothers live on the west coast and turned me on to it before it became prevalent in the Chicago area.

What I find disgusting is that these people could not tell the "hot dog sauce" was ketchup. Personally I only really use ketchup for one thing and that's fries and the occasional bad steak.

If I have a say in the matter: Mustard and sauerkraut, please. No ketchup.

If I'm in the park and harvesting in the trash bins: I'll take what I get.

Where in the country does the majority of people use the term "Catsup"?

daegog Just did a smidgen of research and it appears catsup is fast on its way out. A few condiment manufacturers used the term a long time ago, but virtually all of them have switched over to ketchup, largely because that's the spelling Heinz uses and Heinz has dominated the market for decades. I could find no information on any area of the U.S. where the use of catsup predominates.

Gerry1of1 I put mayonnaise on my hot dog if I spilt it and make a sandwich out of it on bread (two hotdogs) with the chance of sounding silly it just seams to taste better on bread with mayonnaise and better on a bun with mustard. So I guess we're both horrible people or I'm only half horrible.

Who actually cares what you put on a meat shavings and scraps picked up from the butchers floor lol.

It's just a hotdog, put on there whatever helps you get it down.

I don't like ketchup in general.
I won't specifically ask for no ketchup, but I won't put ketchup on myself.

Mustard, relish, and onions are all I specifically order my Sheetz dogz (rumham will understand)

DuckBoy87 You've got me interested in this topic. Now I'm thinking of doing a Wawa and Sheetz comparison. It would be a good excuse to indulge in lots of coffee and some not-very-healthy food. I'd submit it as a post, but only Pennsylvanians would have any idea what we're talking about.

squrlz4ever I will be expecting a full report with action photos:).  I've been to both and they are probably the two best chain gas station/convience stores in the country.  To be honest, Wawa is pretty much a food court when you go inside.

squrlz4ever Well, that actually gives me an idea; we could invite all Pennsylvanians to do the same and submit it as one compilation.

That would give me an excuse to travel eastwards.

Chicagoans will crucify you if you order a hot dog with ketchup.  I'm not sure who wrote this headline, but they have no clue what they're talking about.  Try walking into Portillo's and ordering ketchup on your dog.  I've done it, and it's not pretty.
