Storyline

Filmmaker Rick Sebak takes his cameras across the country in search of the various hot dogs people enjoy. We see the Super Duper Hot Dog stand and its variety of toppings and sauces. There is an in-depth study of the Chicago-area hot dog stands, in particular the Superdawg. Other hot dog establishments in all of their shapes forms and gimmicks (think the Varsity restaurant's "WhaddyahaveWhaddyahaveWhaddyahave?") Then we come to the New York City area and Gray's Papaya and Nathan's Hot Dogs, where each has their own method of cooking and serving their franks. The annual Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest is also featured. Written by Chase Erwin

A Hot Dog Program is a PBS film about the hot dog in America. They introduce you to hot dogs and eateries all over the country, some nationally famous, some only locally famous. The film made me very hungry while I was watching it. If you don't like dogs, then you better not watch this, if you love dogs it's a must see. Some interesting ways of preparing dogs and some interesting way of eating dogs. Most come from the same factory, some from other places, but all in the USA. I'm going to have to look up some of these recipes and tag some places to stop on my travels. An interesting and well made documentary that makes your mouth water and gives you the urge to visit a dog stand.
