FFS, Hot dogs are NOT Evil!

I buy my hot dogs from a local butcher.  He does not use scrap parts to make them, he uses real cuts of beef or pork.  You can get them casing free or with natural casing.  They are dye free and chemical free.  When I feed my family hot dogs, I know EXACTLY what they are ingesting!

My butcher also makes cheeses and dairy products.  He is not allowed to sell milk, but he can sell the rest.  They are fresh and his cows are not given hormones.  

And he sells eggs from free-range, hormone free chickens.

So if your children want hot dogs, or you are looking for a healthy alternative, check your local meat markets first.  BBQ season is fast upon us, so be ready!

(The price varies, but overall I save a TON of money buying in bulk from my trusted local butcher.)

I don't eat them - even if they are the best hot dogs ever. If my kids have them at a bbq, party, etc... It's not a big deal to me, but I don't buy them for typical dinner.

Throw it on a grill and I'm there.

Just look for the healthier alternatives.

Meh. I give my kid store bought hot dogs occasionally. He eats at home, cooked-from-scratch food most of the time, so an occasional hot dog or french fry won't kill him.

They may not be evil but they are gross. Corn dogs are worse
