Today, July 23, 2015, we are celebrating National Hot Dog Day! The humble wiener, as we know it today from ball parks and barbecues, began as a simple cooked sausage served in a bun and has now been elevated to gourmet status in some circles. Did you know that, in addition to the publicity generated by the world famous Wiener-mobile, there's also a National Hot Dog and Sausage Council that is dedicated to the promotion of America's beloved snack meal? They even made a video about how they're made! In it, the "Queen of Wien" explains it all.

Thanks to Hot Dawg Stop in Youngsville for helping us celebrate today!
