Hot Dog

Oscar Mayer is now making bacon-studded hot dogs, but Ryan Farr of 4505 Meats, who originally invented them, tells Grub Street he's not offended: "I guess I'm flattered...the reason the idea popped into my head originally was because I had those cheese-studded hot dogs that Oscar Mayer used to make. I used the childhood memory of that juicy, cheesy hot dog, so it's kind of like it's come full circle...Bacon makes a damn good hot dog. I guess they've verified that fact." [Grub Street]
