    1. Having enjoyed excellent hot dogs from CA (Pinks) to AZ (Ted's) to NJ (Hot Dog Johnnys, Hot Grill, Rutts) to ME (Flos) and many in between, NY SYSTEM in RI rank #1 for me.

      It's not simply one topping, but the package - special meat sauce (ground beef, cumin, dry mustard, allspice, nutmeg, etc), yellow mustard (the one place it can be used), chopped onions and a sprinkling of celery salt on a steamed bun (boiled or grilled) that makes NY System wieners #1.

      1. Dirty water style: bring water to a boil, dump in dawgs, cut off heat and let sit for maybe 10 minutes.

        Fav toppings are minced hot yellow peppers, yella mustard and celery salt.

        1. Varies, but I usually bolie them.
          P.S. Tucker, you still have some edit time.:)

            Bolie = sous vide (laughing here).

          2. Pan fried in Butter and the same for the Roll w/Gulden's type Mustard
