We Need Funding To Open Still


The County of Santa Cruz had informed us over a year ago that we could not operate a mobile food operation in the unincorporated areas of the county. In order to open up now, we need a larger budget to have a brick and mortar operation in our city. We are using KickStarter to try to raise funds. If you don’t have money, at least please share the KickStarter link! We only have 60 days to complete our financial goals!

Thank you, thank you and thank you!!

The History Of The Hot Dog


History of the Hot Dog

Can You Say Sausage?

The history of the hot dog spans  far back in cultural history, way before it became an American culinary icon. It all started out with the sausage, and when you think about it, hot dogs are indeed sausages. The term deriving from the Latin term salsus for salted, was adopted into the Middle English term sausige and the French term saussiche which eventually in our English language was and is transcribed as sausage. The German term for sausage is wurst and easily explains why various sausages have the word wurst in them. Funny thing though, nothing is considered a hot dog, not even a frankfurter unless a bun is added!

Historical Origins Revealed

Sausage HistoryThe first sausages recorded date back to ancient Greece and Rome in the  700’s BC where it is mentioned in writings of the making of sausages where roasted animal intestines were stuffed into stomach linings for feasts. In those days well into the present, salt was used as a preservative to keep meats from spoiling which makes complete sense why the term sausage would derive from the Latin term “salt”. In days before refrigeration, curing meat for long term storage was a necessity for survival. Making sausages were a great way of not only keeping a food supply handy for long storage, but also a way to utilize as much of animal without waste adding an additional food surplus for early civilizations. It is important to note though that sausages have been around before recorded history! SausagesA sausage is basically various/selected salted meats, organs, or blood ground and stuffed into an intestinal lining formed in a cylinder shape. A hot dog is much the same with the exception of the sizes a hot dog may come in as well as the meat being pureed opposed to ground as in traditional sausages. Even the skinless hot dogs are first cooked in a lining known as a casing, usually synthetic, then removed afterwords before the packaging process.

Coming to America

German ImmigrantsIn American history, sausages first started seeing their first appearances with the arrival of immigrants, mainly from Germany in the early 1800’s. German immigrants sold their frankfurters from carts as early as the 1860’s in New York City along with rolls and kraut. The popularity of street vended sausages would only grow into an American icon for future generations into the present of America’s culinary culture.

Who Invented The Hot Dog Link?

Austria VS GermanyThe frankfurter from Germany is celebrated as being over 500 years old. The town of Frankfurt claims that their frankfurter sausage dates back to 1484. It wasn’t until 1852 however that The Butcher’s Guild of Frankfurt, Germany introduced the odd shaped sausage and gave it a name that represented their town. In 1805 however, 47 years prior to Frankfurt’s naming of the frankfurter, the people of Vienna, Austria were calling the same sausage type wiener ,essentially wien, which is the German pronunciation for Vienna. The master sausage maker accredited for the wiener apparently learned his craft in Frankfurt then returned to Vienna naming his creation “wiener-frankfurter” but was more commonly recognized in the region by the locals as the wienerwurst.

The Mystery of Who Bun It … Solved!

History of the Hot Dog BunSome Truth Mixed With Myth: It wasn’t until 1880, nearly 20 years after sausage popularity had grown in the United States that a German sausage peddler would come into the scene and change hot dog history as we know it. Antoine Feuchtwanger had found a solution for his customers seeking to enjoy a freshly cooked sausage … gloves. He would let the customers put on a white glove while eating in front of his cart so as to not burn their hands. There was one problem, many customers often took off with the gloves and this proved costly to this St. Louis vendor. Being the brother-in-law of a baker and under his wife’s suggestion, he had buns made and split so sausages could be held without burning customers. The bun was born and now not a single hot dog is ever served without being accompanied by a bun. He called his product back then “red hots” instead of hot dogs.

The Truth: German immigrants had been eating their sausages in their own homeland Germany far before they ever came to America. In the 1860’s in New York City’s Bowery, German peddlers sold sausages with milk rolls on the streets commonly. So can one person be attributed to this handy method of consuming a hot frankfurter sausage without a plate? No. Sure, somebody probably did come up with it first, but it was probably in a small German cottage a long time ago and just caught on. We do have a mighty contender down below in the “hot dog stands” section. Check it out.

They “Mustard” Done Something to My Hot Dog

Frenchs Mustard Hot DogEver wondered where and when the  hot dog and mustard trend started? Well it is said that the first hot dog to be slathered with mustard was in 1904 and provided by the R.T. French Company at the St. Louis World Fair. It was a huge hit and obviously has continued to be a hit ever since. Very few hot dog connoisseurs can imagine a hot dog without mustard. The R.T. French Company is now French’s mustard. Next time you pick up an old fashioned dog and see a bottle of French’s Mustard, you know your getting an authentic dog!

Behind The Famous “Hot Dog” Name

Dachshund Wiener DogSome Truth Mixed With Myth: Whatever you want to call these small sausages, the actual term “hot dog” is believed to be in reference to the Frankfurt term “dachshund sausage”  due to the resemblance to the dachshund canine species. This term would travel with the immigrants coming to the new promise land (America) and be eventually tailored to the name “hot dog”. It didn’t happen right away though … it wouldn’t become popular slang until 1901 when a sports cartoonist named Tad Dorgan would hear the term “red hot dachshund sausages” as sausage peddlers tried to sell their product. He ended up drawing a cartoon of an  image of a dachshund dog in a bun covered in mustard. He couldn’t spell the word dachshund so he captioned it instead with “Get Your Hot Dogs”.

Sad Truth: The term “hot dog” was coined by Yale college students in the 1890’s and quickly spread throughout many other colleges in the same decade via college magazines. How did this term get coined? Hold your stomachs. It was because there was a time in American history where the hot dog sausage actually contained dog meat in them! You heard that right, dog meat. Now,this was not commonplace in the sausage making community, but a few were. You see, cheap and rather scandalous butchers would actually hire dog killers who would roam the streets with clubs killing canines and then sell it to the very knowledgeable butchers who would in turn hide it in the sausages. It was cheaper than pork or cow. These Yale students were aware of the sadistic and disgusting practice of their time, perhaps even some of them at one point being consumer victims themselves. It was rumored more than actual fact though and hot dogs became more of a rebellious type of snack that students would devour in devilish humor from the sausage food cart that catered at Yale humorously called “The Kennel Club”, but not due to the rumors but rather the school mascot, the Bulldog.

Sports Goes to the Dogs

St. Louis BrownsIt was in 1893 that the hot dog got a big boost in popularity due to sports. Baseball would usher the sausage into the limelight as the snack/meal for all sporting events Nationwide. It was at the St. Lois Missouri Browns Ballpark that hot dogs would be first served at a ball game. The trend took off from there and quickly spread across the country. Today there isn’t a ballpark without a hot dog vendor during a sports event, not even little league!

The First Hot Dog Stands in America

First Hot Dog StandIt was in Coney Island, NY 1867 where a German baker by the name of Charles Feltman started up probably the first hot dog stand in not only New York history, but American history. In order to help sell his baked goods, Feltman came up with the gimmick of adding  a hot sausage in between his baked rolls for 10 cents. His “sausage sandwiches” were a hit and made Coney Island history, if not American history. He went on to also convert his delivery pie wagons into roll storage and sausage boilers and took to the streets vending directly from his coal fired carts. Many have accredited Charles Feltman as being the founder of the hot dog in a bun. This may be the case, it most undoubtedly will be debated.

Nathan's Hot DogsFeltman would further go on into hot dog history after his restaurant employed a polish immigrant by the name of Nathan Handwerker in 1916. Nathan’s job was to split buns at Feltman’s restaurant, but Nathan would soon tire of this job and go on to undermine his own boss and start his own hot dog stand. Instead of charging 10 cents for a hot dog, Nathan charged only 5 cents and thus grew his own popularity on Coney Island and became near crippling competition. To this day Nathan’s restaurant continues to serve hot dogs from that stand as well as has their hot dogs sold Nationwide in supermarkets. Every 4th of July Nathan’s throws their world famous annual hot dog eating contest where history continues to be made with Guinness World Records in hot dog consumption competitions.

The Chicago Dog Is Born

Fluky's Chicago Dog HistoryIt was in Chicago 1929 during the depression era that the Chicago Dog was born. It didn’t start out with such a proud name though. Originally called the “Depression Sandwich” by the Jewish owner of Fluky’s, Abe Drexler, the all beef dog was topped with lettuce, tomato, pickle relish, dill pickle, mustard, onion, and hot peppers. Since then the lettuce has been removed from the famous recipe, but the legend continues. I don’t know a single person that doesn’t visit Chicago without grabbing a good ole fashioned Chicago Dog.

One Chili Afternoon

Chili Hot DogIt was in 1918 that Greek influence would once come full circle into the history of the hot dog. This particular bean-less chili, a Greek influenced dish, would top a frankfurter in a bun and forever hold it’s place in America’s heart as a fast food favorite. This hot dog style was initially marketed as the Texas Hot Wiener by a man named Peter  Koufougeorgas in Altoona, Pennsylvania and in Paterson, New Jersey. Chili in itself was not invented by Peter, but his signature chili paved the way to the flavor of the chili dog we are all accustomed to now. True American chili origins do point more towards Texas, hence the original chili dog name The Texas Hot Wiener.

Hot Dogs Go to the Birds

Chicken Hot DogsWhile hot dogs originally consisted of pork and/or beef there were attempts at making other types of frankfurters. The cultural popularity of the hot dog would bring in a whole new era of failure and success. One such introduction was the chicken frank, however when it was originally  introduced in 1951 it was rejected by consumers and would not resurface for years to come until Foster’s Farms in the 1980’s reintroduced it into the market as a healthier alternative to conventional hot dogs. Turkey meat and chicken meat would both see a spike in popularity and to this day are a popular consumer product.

One weird attempt that would not make history in alternative meat hot dogs was the Tuna Hot Dog introduced in 1949 and would be reintroduced throughout the years with little to no success. Known commonly via the first promoters as the Friday Frank, the  industry was at an attempt at marketing it’s fish product as Ham of the Sea as an alternative to pork. That culinary invention currently “sleeps with the fishes”. 😉

Peace, Love, and Veggie Dogs

Vegetarian Hot DogsIn 1939 a psychiatrist (George Harding) who believed that body must feed the mind started up a company in pursuit of healing the body through vegetarian diets. His company, Worthington Loma Lunda , would try to change the tide in American diets by creating the fist vegetarian hot dog in 1949 using spun soy fiber. While it may have not been an instant hit Nationwide then, many companies have emerged since offering vegetarian frankfurters and their consumption has continued to see growth among health conscious consumers worldwide. As a matter of fact, many ball parks have been making recent headlines as they adopt this particular frankfurter as an alternative for their baseball fans.

What Is The Best Hot Dog?


The Best Chicago DogWhat is the best hot dog within the United States? Well for years I personally always considered the Chicago Dog to be the best hot dog around. I live in Santa Cruz, CA however and there weren’t necessarily any hot dog joints offering the Chicago Dog with the exception of Wienerschnitzel, which I considered a hack. So naturally I would go to the grocer and buy my own supplies to make Chicago Dogs at home which were delicious, I always threw in a twist on them too which made them exceptionally awesome. I would share this recipe, however, I might in the future offer them and will want to keep them a trade secret for now. Sorry fellas.

So what is the best hot dog in my opinion now? Well actually I have to put aside the Chicago Dog now because of my newest creation, The Santa Cruz Dog. I know they say you should never toot your own horn, but I am seriously impressed with this hot dog and feel it is perfect for representing my region. I’ll go into the makings of this dog and then go into why I made the decision, other than the fantastic flavor, for this dog.

I want to quickly add, I have nothing but love for the Chicago Dog, but I feel it’s time to make history and make my mark on this planet. The Santa Cruz Dog I believe is an essential addition that the hot dog foodie will appreciate.

The Ingredients of The Best Hot Dog

The Best Hot Dog - The Santa Cruz DogTHE BUN: The first ingredient to our Santa Cruz Dog is the bun. A nice thick sourdough bun is not only tasty and awesome to look at, but it’s necessary to hold all of the additional toppings that go along with this Goliath of a dog.

THE HOT DOG: All beef frankfurter with a snap. Beef is the highest quality type of meat that can be put into a hot dog and has a firmer texture and is more filling. These hot dogs have snap which is the result of the use of a natural casing that holds in all the flavors and juices of the dog when cooked.

THE SAUCE: It is a creamy and tangy California style sauce with a slight garlic spiciness. It’s delicious. I can’t go into ingredients as it is what gives it’s signature flavor and we don’t need copy cats running around.

THE TOPPINGS: We top is all with some delicious chunky ingredients which include red onions, green chilies, artichoke hearts, jalapenos, and smoked bacon.

A Unique Hot Dog for a Unique Place

Santa Cruz California

Santa Cruz, CA is a place that stands alone from all other counties in California. The unique combination of mountains, ocean, and a temperate climate help make the locals of Santa Cruz a very healthy and active community. Daily activities of the local people of Santa Cruz include  jogging on the beach, cruising bicycles on West Cliff Drive, trail hiking, kayaking, surfing, scuba diving, wind and kite surfing, skateboarding, and many other activities.

The community of this amazing area has a very diverse cultural background and is home to many amazing individuals. There is a large percentage of chefs, artists, professional athletes, and musicians that give Santa Cruz it’s flair. It’s no wonder our city is a magnet to tourists from all over the world every year.

Behind The Main Tribute Ingredients

ArtichokeThe artichoke is an essential ingredient when paying tribute to the region in my recipe. Because of the climate and rich soil of the Central Coast, agriculture is a major trademark. If you drive south of Santa Cruz past Watsonville on Highway 1, you will discover farm land as far as you can see along the coast and inland. Many of these produce fields grow artichokes. Locally, the artichoke is a celebrated food and common on the dinner table for a Santa Cruz family. The marinated artichoke heart in The Santa Cruz Dog pays tribute to this locally grown produce as well as to the Italians who helped popularize the German introduced hot dog sausage.

Green ChilliesThe mild green chillies and jalapenos put on top of our delicious dog are not just for flavor, but representative of the people who are responsible for our daily fresh produce available locally.  The green chilli and jalapeno pepper is very common place in local Hispanic cuisine and additionally is delicious.

So what is the best hot dog you can eat? Well I am betting on my new creation The Santa Cruz Dog. While we are still in the works of getting everything together, I hope you will come out when opening day is announced and try it for yourself. It will be great to get everyone’s feedback! Have a great day, and hope to see you in Santa Cruz 🙂

What Is In A Hot Dog


What Is a Hot Dog?

A hot dog is technically just a sausage plain and simple. Hot dogs essentially are just smaller sized sausages with the exception of the meats used, the processing of the meats, the smoking process or flavor, and the spices that are added. The process for creating hot dogs entails the use of casings which act as a mold to hold the shape of the filling of the small sausages. A hot dog has a thinner casing than a full sized sausage and is usually pre-cooked allowing longer storage of the hot dogs. A hot dog has many names including the following terms: Franks, Frankfurter, Dog, Dogs, Wienies, Wieners, A Red Hot, or Links.

What Meat Is In a Hot Dog?

What is in a hot dog can be a varying combination of meats or one singular meat (chicken, beef, and pork), (chicken and pork), (pork and beef), (beef), (pork), (chicken), or (turkey). While the meats may vary, it isn’t necessarily the meat that wholly defines a quality hot dog. More than just the meat, it is the cut from where the meat is from on the animal.

Just as you would never try to pass a chuck roast for a prime rib roast, either would you for a gourmet dog. Beef dogs are probably the best hot dog you can buy thanks to the long ago outbreak of madcow disease believe it or not. When the outbreak occurred, the USDA outlawed the use of automated machinery for pulling meat from dead cattle. It is through this law that even the cheapest ALL BEEF hot dogs are more likely to have a better quality of meat than those with a mixture combination, as the same laws are not required for the separation of meat, bone, and intestines for other species of farm animals.

Poultry hot dogs such as chicken or turkey dogs are usually left over flesh stuck to the bone after the slaughtering process. The way they get all these little tid bits of flesh is through a highly pressurized mechanized process that pushes bone through a sive resulting in the removal of flesh. The process creates a paste like substance that then get’s molded into those tasty little suckers. I am not a fan of them actually, and it stands to show why they are so darn cheap all the time.

The pork typically goes through a mechanical process as well but not as severe as with poultry product. The USDA only allows the mechanical separation of pork providing it does not crush bone. The quality of the meat taken from pork and poultry has the potential to be of lesser standards, but it is important to know and understand that each manufacturer of hot dogs will have it’s own procedures and methods of quality control. Knowing more about who made your hot dogs can help you better love or hate your convenient frank.

I have to say in all fairness, regardless of my distaste for chicken/turkey franks, all the meats for “hot dogs” are ground into a smooth pasty texture to be pressed into their molds that give the hot dog it’s distinct shape. All in all, none of it looks great in the making of it, but many of us will agree, the end result can be VERY tasty!

What Spices Are Used?

Various types of spices in many different combinations are used when making a hot dog. What is in a hot dog on a most current basis usually is first and foremost garlic. Garlic, once cooked, gives a very distinct flavor to the meat(s) being used and gives it that classic taste that has made the hot dog famous for so long.

Other common spices can include nutmeg, paprika, ground mustard seed powder, pepper (white/black), coriander, mace, ground celery seed, salt, and sugar. Each manufacturer has their own specific measurement and combination to make their signature flavors stand out. Next time you bite into a juicy hot dog, perhaps you may try to guess what spices you taste in the hot dog link you’re consuming yourself.

The FDA allows certain ingredients to be mixed without being listed. These ingredients are known as “flavoring”.

What Is On a Hot Dog?

It’s not just what is in a hot dog, but what surrounds the hot dog. In many instances a frankfurter will have what is called a casing. A casing traditionally is an intestinal lining that has been sterilized and is used to put the meat product inside. This helps not only keep the cylinder shape of the hot dog, but also helps retain flavor and juices. Depending on the casing, when you bite into a dog you can expect a nice good snap sound when biting into it which is the signature for some famous hot dogs such as the Chicago Dog or the New York Dog.

While casing for sausages are usually made from pig or cow intestines, these intestines can be too tough for the smaller hot dog however. It is in this case, no pun intended, that sheep intestines are commonly used in the ALL NATURAL dogs. Not all hot dogs have casings, as a matter of fact, many store bought dogs are usually what is refered to as skinless, but a real gourmet dog will typically have a casing.

There are also cellulose and plastic casings. These casings you will more than likely never ever see. For one, they ARE NOT edible, but secondly, they are used for molds for the sake of making the most popularly sold dog, the skinless hot dog. Entirely part of a manufacturing process.

Additional Hot Dog Ingredients

Hot dogs when purchased by the public usually are cooked at home from a grocery store. Every national brand offers their hot dogs prepackaged and are produced on a massive scale which requires preserving not only for the shipping process, but the shelf life once purchased. There are uncured hot dogs available at health food stores and even some major groceries, but the majority come packaged as cured, which equals preservatives. There is much controversy over these preservatives, and rightfully so. This is the ugly segment we have come to. These ingredients are not the case for all hot dogs, but commonly used in the majority of the products.

Corn Syrup – Okay, so it’s not much of preservative but on the bright side,  it’s not the same high fructose corn syrup you have read about either, but none the less it packs on some good amount of calories to your meal. It’s main purpose is flavoring (sweetening the dog). While sugar has been used for flavoring traditionally, larger manufacturers of hot dogs prefer the easier way out. This is their way.

Potassium Lactate – This is an antimicrobial that helps eliminate harmful mold and yeast. potassium lactate comes from neutralized lactic acid. While this may seem to be related to a milk product, it is not. I will add, there is no significant proof of health side-effects associated with this particular product. As a matter of fact, many in the scientific field believe this to be beneficial to infants and toddlers due to their lack of tolerance to lactose.

Sodium Diacetate – This is another antimicrobial that helps eliminate mold/fungus and keeps the hot dog safe for consumption  after being stored for a long length of time. It basically is a salt used as a preservative. It is  mixed with vinegar and sodium acetate which gives an additional signature taste as well to deli dogs that are commonly available unpacked at deli and butcher shops. In small quantities, this chemical is recognized by the FDA to be generally safe.

Sodium Erythorbate – Okay, so while not every dog has this ingredient, many do. This one is not such a great ingredient and might not go over well with you. This chemical is used to help keep hot dogs a certain color for cosmetic purposes. This salt derives from erythorbic acid and has been known to have some side effects to those that consume foods with this particular chemical. These side effects can include nausea, dizziness, intestinal problems, and even kidney stones in rare instances of over consumption.

Sodium Nitrate – This chemical helps meta products maintain their color as well as reduce some dangerous strains of botulism down to a minimum count. This chemical is very common in many processed foods and is the center of attention for health critics. Scientific studies have found this particular chemical to cause cancer and is the main reason some health groups are pushing for hot dogs with this chemical in them to have cancer warning labels.

Maltodextrin – This is used as a thickening agent which is beneficial in the production process and can give additional firmness to the dog. This ingredient basically is a corn product which is  a starch.

Sodium Phosphate – This salt based chemical is used for many purposes in the creation of the hot dog. It works as an emulsifier to keep fats from separating from the meat unifying the products contents and keeping it consistent. It also neutralizes acidity and alkalinity to help keep shelf life. It is also added as a nutrient to provide necessary phosphates. This product does have a list of side effects which can include any of the following:  kidney damage, nausea, stomach pain, bloating, heart irregularity, seizures, difficulty breathing, difficulty swallowing, and fainting. It is important to note that these side effects are not all that common and are usually attributed to consuming too much of this particular chemical compound. Foods with this ingredient should  be eaten in moderation.

Water – Yes, H2o may be added to a hot dog. The FDA requires that no more than 10% be used in hot dog products though, I don’t think you’d want more.

All in all, not all these ingredients are used in a dog. Different recipes and methods occur within the industry. Health advocates are against hot dogs all the way, but if you eat hot dogs in moderation and maintain a healthy lifestyle, you should not have anything to really worry about. Those on a sodium restricted diet though should avoid hot dogs altogether.

Here is a video to get more insight into the process of creating hot dogs. Not the most appetizing video, but you wanted to know ….

Santa Cruz Hot Dogs


Santa Cruz Light House When you think of the coastal city of Santa Cruz, CA you may think of fresh seafood, wines, art, surfing, but hot dogs probably aren’t necessarily the first thing to come to mind. Well it just so happens this small surf town and it’s county have some unexpected but excellent places to dine in or on the go offering the classic bite, the all American hot dog. With a place as unique as Santa Cruz though, you could only expect the most unique personalities and menu items for the age-old traditional fast food. I’ve decided to list some of my own favorite classic and original hot dog joints in our beautiful county. I will have to note, I have not eaten at each location, but if you visit Yelp listings, you can find plenty of additional reviews and information regarding these establishments.

You may be asking me, “why promote other vendors from your site?’ and I’ll tell you, I’m not getting into the business for competitive purposes. I am passionate about food, and have a healthy respect for this age-old tradition. The hot dog to me represents a bypassed era as well as to me a founding father of our great country. I cannot help but be passionate about the industry and those striving within it. Santa Cruz Hot Dogs are an extension to the time honored tradition with all the culinary flair Santa Cruz has to offer.

My #1 Pick! SNAPPY DOGS – Okay, so this hot dog vendor I would have to say was my founding inspiration to even ponder the thought of owning a hot dog cart. The location is on the Westside of Santa Cruz in front of the U-Save off of Mission St. in between Safeway and Burger King very close to the ocean. When you walk up you are greeted with a smile and immediately offered a great tasting dog with a large variety of condiments to accommodate your tastes.

While there isn’t necessarily a signature recipe associated with the hot dogs, you get a delicious juicy dog at a fair price that in my opinion, are the best dogs available while maintaining your budget. Snappy Dogs is my number one pick in the county and I advise you get on down to that location and grab yourself up a tasty bite ASAP. It’s just a real cool old school vibe you get when you buy your dog from here, and you cannot beat the friendliness of this vendor.

DAWGS – Now if you go for a small drive out of Santa Cruz up Highway 17, you’ll end up in the small community of Scotts Valley, CA where the hot dog has been given some style with a unique make-over. The small red shack next to a dog kennel (coincidence?) offers up some delicious bites and is well worth the drive out of town for something different, especially if you’re a hot dog fan. They offer something that caught my eye and was extremely delicious, this was the American Kobe Beef Dog. It’s a bit more than the other dogs, but only by a dollar at the most. I slab mine up with some spicy mustard and a few jalapenos and I have a smile on my face and a belly that loves me. They have many different speciality dishes and offer fresh fried potato chips which are fun to snack on if you are dining in. Everyone should eat here at least once.
