Many cities around the U.S. have a signature hot dog. What would Yakima's be?I love a good hot dog. (Except for the turkey type that my ex wife use to make me eat all the time because they were "healthier") When I was going to broadcast school in Seattle years ago, The Franfurter was almost a daily stop. A lot of us here in Yakima lament the closing of our own hot dog mecca, Poochies. I have yet to try Spuddog near Home Depot.

A couple of places to get a hot dog fix include Costco and Sonic. I'm hooked on the Sonic Chicago Dog. A poppy seed bun, all beef  dog with tomatoes, pickle spears, chopped onion, sport peppers, relish and yellow mustard topped with a sprinkle of celery salt.

So, the question is, what would a Yakima Dog consist of? It's up to you to come up with one.

Here's the criteria. Tell us the type of bun, type of frank (beef, pork, no turkey, etc.), how it's cooked (grilled, boiled,  steamed, and so on), and what toppings.

I'm sorry, I know this is Yakima, but I don't think apples in any way go on any type of hot dog, but that's just me. Get creative, but remember it has to be edible.

Sunset Magazine just had a great article on hot dogs. You can read it here.
