Hot Dogs Are Awesome

Free hot dogs are even better. A few weeks back, we had the fortune to attend Arvada Trails Day, whereupon we walked around in two parks and saw various booths, got a free tote bag, shot a few animals in a hunting simulator, and saw some raptors (of the bird kind, not the dinosaur kind) (though I might argue that they’re the same thing, but that is a discussion for a non-food blog). And, there were the hot dogs. At both parks there were free hot dogs. So we dogged it up at the first park, looked at the exhibits, then headed over to the second park where we dogged it up some more. I was pretty full by this point, but who can say “no” to free?

Hot dogs

As we were leaving Park #2, we saw a momentous pile of hot dogs still sitting there and decided to grab a few for the road as well. I saved mine for a different day, but Drew was not so strong, and for dinner had hot dog #3. The sad thing is that this came not long after we decided to cut back on the processed meats, as they’re kinda bad for you and all. But alas, that whole “free” thing.

On another note, you know what baffles me? The gendering of food preparation, specifically grilling. Everyone operating the grills and flipping the dogs and such at this event was male. It was being run by the local fire department and all (which seems to attract mostly males), but it made me think about how weird it is that at most cookout events, the grill is usually operated by males. And cookout/grilling products are generally marketed to males as well, for that matter. Is there just something manlier about cooking outside versus inside? I’d say maybe it’s that whole “fire” thing, but there are plenty of gas stoves in kitchens. Or it’s more of a mechanical process, since you have to start a fire and all, and there’s this idea then men are more mechanically minded. But as for that, you either have a gas grill where you turn a knob and the fire magically appears, or you go buy a bag of charcoal, dump on the lighter fluid, and light away. I don’t really get it.

In any case, I think grilling is awesome, that everyone should do it, and I can’t wait to actually own a yard to put a grill in. Also, hot dogs are delicious and will make my arteries explode if I keep stuffing my face with free hot dogs. And on a related note, Happy 4th of July!

    DEEP FRY THEM franks are great cooked that way. I first found out about it around two years back and have cooked them that path from that point onward. Simply drop it in and in around 1 minute it is prepared to take pull out and eat. The skin some of the time turns somewhat dark yet within the wiener is super delicious and tastes extraordinary.
