HOT DOGS IN THE MAKING
Hotdogs have been known to have a bad name,
but they really are not what people think they are.
They say that the making is gross, but it is no
different than any other processing. They consist of
meat trimming and seasonings such as garlic and
salt. They have fat trimmings also which helps with
flavor. Beef and pork are the two most common
meats used in hotdogs, but certain manufacturers
have been known to use chicken in them too, but
you can always opt out for the 100% beef. They
used to be encased with the natural sheep
intestine to hold the meat together but now they
mainly use starch. There is also another type you
can get that is with no casing at all, but they are
much easier to process with the casing.
