Hot Dog Etiquette

Ways of the weiner
Posted by Chill Editorial Staff on

There’s still plenty of time to squeeze in lots more backyard BBQs. Before you take another bite, read up on this advice from the National Hot dog council, and prevent your hot dog etiquette from going up in smoke.

Put hot dog toppings between the hot dog and the bun. Always "dress the dog," not the bun. Apply condiments in the following order: wet condiments like mustard and chili first, followed by chunky condiments like relish, onions and sauerkraut, finishing up with shredded cheese, and spices like celery salt or pepper.

Serve sesame seed, poppy seed and plain buns with hot dogs. Sun-dried tomato buns or basil buns are considered gauche with franks.

Use a cloth napkin to wipe your mouth when eating a hot dog. Paper is always preferable.

Eat hot dogs on buns with your hands. Utensils should not touch hot dogs or buns.

Take more than five bites to finish a hot dog. For foot-long wiener, seven bites are acceptable.

Use paper plates to serve hot dogs. Every day dishes are acceptable; china is a no-no.

Leave bits of bun on your plate. Eat it all.

Use fresh herbs on the same plate with hot dogs. It wrecks the presentation.

Use ketchup on your hot dog after the age of 18. Mustard, relish, onions, cheese and chili are acceptable.

Lick remaining condiments off fingers. Never wash.

Send a thank you note following a hot dog barbecue. It would not be in keeping with the unpretentious nature of hot dogs.
