Hot links

(article, Savannah Naffziger)

As you pull that frankfurter off the grill this Fourth of July, keep in mind that it’s one of 2.3 billion consumed each July by Americans. That’s 858 hot dogs a second, which is probably why July is National Hot Dog Month.	

It’s a great excuse to explore your dog options: pick up some traditional, all-American-style Great Organic Hot Dogs from Applegate Farms, or get artisanal sausages at your local farmers' market or natural butcher. Branch out with the Chicago Tribune’s foodie spins on the classic Chicago-style dog, or even try a vegan Field Roast link.  

No matter which you choose, finish off at this site for hot-dog etiquette to learn the proper way to load up your condiments.
