Steve Doggie-Dogg (moved from L.A. board)

I heard that Steve Doggie-Dogg, of Hotdog Spot fame, passed away last month. Has anybody else heard about Steve?

  1. No indications from either of the web sites Steve Doggie-Dogg (real name Stephen Worth) maintains. His other pet project, the Animation Archive still lists him as Director, and there are recent posts with his byline.

    Hopefully this is just a false rumor. I'd seen him in the past at the Toluca Lake Bob's Big Boy.

      say it ain't so, i think he originally tipped me off to the turkey dogs at weiner factory, and now the WF is now fucking gone, what's next?

      1. re: kevin

        His site lists an email of hotdogspot@hotdogspot.com. If someone wants to try to email him...Sure would be a shame if the rumor is true.

        1. re: SIMIHOUND

          just emailed him hopefully i'll get a response, and hopefully WF will open up again, and all will be right in the world.

    2. I'm not dead.... just living in Pacoima!

        Is there a difference?

        Just kidding ;-)

          Steve, we all want to know...what's up with the hotdogspot blog?

          As Kevin said, the WF's turkey dog was the best. I've been looking all over for a duplicate, and nothing compares. Other turkey dogs are just boring, mundane weiners. WF's were flavorful and spicy, on those steamed buns, absolute heaven!!

          Any word on if WF will ever come back? Or, Steve, any knowledge about where WF got their dogs? Kevin, WF's owner, told me they were made special for him, but he'd never reveal who made them.

          1. re: GK in SO

            I don't know who made those turkey dogs either. They were really good. I just bought a house, and I've been running my BBQ like crazy. I haven't had any time to go out on dog runs.

              So glad to see you posting here Steve!! Your voice has been missed.

              1. re: stevedoggiedogg

                You should talk to your friends at Swingin Door BBQ. They are the ones who told me you had passed away.

                The old Swinging Door closed down in 08. The new Swingin Door (notice the missing G) opened under new owners in the summer of 09. Same location, same smoker, just a slightly different name.

              Good to hear from you, Steve. When you do get a chance, definitely go to Fab in Resdea. It's at Tampa and Vanowen, so it's not that hard a trip from Pacoima.
