American style vs. British style hotdogs electrocuted for crimes against food descriptions.
My parents used to have a Presto Hot Dog maker. I don’t remember it cooking so fast, maybe the higher European voltage. Ours eventually stopped working, but looking at it now , my may have been fixable. Thanks for sharing.
Wow..Can they call those hot dogs..they look like tiny vienna sausages.
I imagine no casing.
I can't believe they don't have regular hot dogs in the UK..arent they called bangers?
tks for culture shock
Mmmm. I will pass. We don’t have the death penalty here any more. Could have microwaved a couple of dozen in the time that took to setup.
We of course are not resigned to eating those soylent food imposters and have real ‘sausages’.. they are an absolute world away from the recovered pink chicken matter and binding hotdogs.
There are great regional variations too. Top of the pile, of course, is The Cumberland.. either as bangers or coiled. Perfect with mashed potatoes, peas and onion gravy! Get them fresh from local butchers.
Great after a Sunday walk at a country pub in the Lake District.
LMAO!!!!! Great video!
For a real cultural mashup, try mixing sliced up hot dogs, ramen noodles and ketchup. Season to taste.
The Cumberland is truly the King of meaty tubules.
I do however, like the new technology.
Wonder if I could use that for brats.
Hot dogs in a can..Umm no thank you..
Back in the 70's I used the hell out of one of these....
I grew up with the Presto hotdog Cooker back in the 60s. Way better tasting than boiling in water. I only BBQ them or over a campfire these days. The larger, the better and 100% beef is a must.
I got food poisoning from I hot dog I bought from the squadron gedunk while serving in the Navy circa 1984, and seriously thought I was dying. I haven't had one since. Can't get past the smell. Makes that much more for the true organ meat high-brows.
The best hot dog is a natural skin dog, grilled, and served with sauerkraut and spicy mustard. It should pop when you bite into it. (You are free to disagree, of course, but you’d be wrong.)
I come from Detroit, where mystery meat hot dogs are served with “chili,” mustard, onions, and grease.
I wonder how many people electrocuted themselves before we figured out that contraption wasn't a good idea. Lol
An amusing thought, but I think they all had cover interlocks that interrupted the power if the cover was open.
Chicago, right? I want to try one like that some day.
I still like grilling them. Cheaper than real sausages, grab a beer and be outside for a little while, most people like them, mustard, onions optional, ketchup is in the back of the fridge go get it yourself you heretic! (Unless some kid asks and then "fine here you go." )
You need to have LED lights for safety...
If I'm in the USA, I'm in the land of the Hot Dog. In the UK, I'd much rather have a sandwich or roll, with some combination of bacon, egg, sausage and grilled tomato....and brown sauce. I had a grilled bacon and tomato sandwich for breakfast, this morning- with a French-blend coffee...….
Oh yeah, I'm sure that failsafe couldn't be defeated. Lol.
Now THIS one really pulls no punches. Electrocuted hot dogs are delicious!
When I was a teenager I made one with two nails through a board, a switch, wire, and an AC plug. Just an experiment. I exploded more than a few hot dogs and knew that the thing would electrocute me if I didn't pay attention.
