Robert Sietsema's Best Hot Dog - 2010
Bark Hot Dogs
The dogs themselves are proprietary links made by Hartmann's Old World Sausage of Canandaigu, New York, and these franks are finished by being basted in a crazy lard-butter mixture. Onto this august platform underlying the pickle dog at Bark Hot Dogs tumbles a shifting roster of cured cucumber products, usually including two kinds of pickle spears as well as pickle relish, squiggled on top with mustard and mayo. Sit up high at one of the long wooden benches, sip a root beer or a Sixpoint, and try to figure out the complicated recycling system that awaits you after you finish your pickle dog.
