Having once lived in the vicinity of a meat-packing plant in Des Moines, I'm not a huge fan of hot dogs. (Enough said.) Since then, however, I have made an exception: New York System hot wieners, the kind you find only in Rhode Island. Perhaps it's the onions, celery salt, mustard, and meat sauce that make me forget about Des Moines, but I could eat half a dozen in one sitting. Happily, I can justify burning a tank of gas to go get them since July happens to be National Hot Dog Month. According to the National Hog Dog & Sausage Council, Americans will devour 7 billion wieners between Memorial Day and Labor Day. New Yorkers happen to consume more hot dogs than any other city, beating out Chicago, Los Angeles, Baltimore/Washington, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Boston.
