'Troy NY' on Serious Eats
A few months ago, my good buddy and fellow Slice'r, dmcavanagh and I were chatting about mobile wood-fired pizza ovens. He mentioned hearing about a guy in the New York State Capital Region with a mobile wood-fired oven, Orapello's Wood Fired Pizza. I happened to catch wind that they would be at a Fall Festival/Pride of New York event in Oneida, about an hour away from where we live. My husband and I decided to check out their pizza and their mobile oven.
In this edition of Hot Dog of the Week we follow the trail of Greek-owned hot dog stands in the Troy/Albany area of New York that sell mini hot dogs. Since the 1920s this region has been known to serve this truly unique regional variation, produced by local butcher shops and served on custom-made three-inch hot dog buns.
