c

Ingredients needed:
-New England Style Hot Dog Buns (Portugese buns, split top) Pictured
-Naturally cased extra long beef dogs, like Nathans:

or something like Redhots- similar to German Bockwurst. Pictured
-A decent hot dog relish

OR

If you know of some hot dog vendor that sells this kind of magic- slightly toasted buttered bun with a hot dog boiled and then deep fried or grilled creating that new york "snap."

Also mention your favorite hotdog places! Perhaps better if not Le Chien Chaude- plenty of reviews already, and I'm looking for obscure Calgary goodness.

    I was just looking up the german sausage bit and the Frankfurter "Saitenwurstchen" style appears to be similar(but im not sure tastewise)- do I need to go to a specialty meat shop?
