I agree that not every Hot Dog pumped here is golden. I've bought a lot of pups that I'd rather have my money back on. But, I've boutght some great ones, too. Ones that I like where others may not. And some that get hyped to death, I just don't "get it", I guess.
Point is, there are a number of Hot Dog manufacturers who post here on the Goner board. And Goner lets 'em. And that's good for everybody. Yes, there's shit weiners everywhere, at any given point in processed meats history. For a sausage engineer, is it a race to be the best and the brightest of one person's view of "taste", or is it about bringing diversity? I don't own a frank factory, and I don't know, and frankly, I don't care.
I'm a "brat" person, myself. I like to see and hear a bbq for the first time as much as possible. It rips out some bullshit in a grilling seting. You can either pull that shit off like it's new, or sound like Oscar Meyer without 8 layers of condiments. But I like to see a hot dog TRY.
I'm not cool, I'm old. I like a lot of stuff others wouldn't.
