    Re: Boiled Hotdogs

    Yes. Other than grilling, I prefer them that way. Microwave is OK but they are too leathery for my taste.

    Re: Boiled Hotdogs

    Wow, can't believe this has garnered its own thread...

    Growing up, hot dogs were boiled. As noted in the other thread, I'm not a fan of the boiled hot dog. I prefer grilled. The GF also grew up with boiled hot dogs, but loves them still. Sounds like a war on the home front is brewing

    Edit: On the poll above, I answered "No" because I have never personally boiled a hot dog.

    Bad poll, should ask if boiling is a stupid way to cook hot dogs.

    Re: Boiled Hotdogs

    does throwing them in the fryer count as boiling?

    I voted yes, but I simply cannot move on. I need context. I need a story to go along with it. Why? What? When? Where?

    Re: Boiled Hotdogs

    Is this thread serious? If you aren't grilling them, it's the best way to cook 'em.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: Boiled Hotdogs

    Who hasn't boiled a hot dog before? Doesn't mean that's the best way to cook one.

    Re: Boiled Hotdogs

    If I'm not grilling a hot dog it means I want it done fast, boiling water and then cooking for 5 minutes or whatever is not fast. Microwave *******.
