Calling All Hot Dog Lovers
It's time for my annual July 4th party. I'm serving homemade fried chicken and penne pasta with sausage, tomatoes and whipping cream. Normally, I smoke some pork butts for pulled pork bbq sandwiches. This year, I want to shake up the menu a bit and make it more teenage/college friendly. I'm planning to have a gourmet hot dog/bratwurst bar with around 25 different toppings. I've got a grip on the usual condiments, but I'd love your ideas for additional, semi non- traditional toppings. I'll probably have 50-60 guests. Recommendations for hot dog brands would also be appreciated.
