The National Hot Dog Council Says Never Use Ketchup On Hot Dogs
Gothamist ^ | 03-14-2014 | Jen Carlson

Posted on 03/14/2014 6:52:54 PM PDT by PaulCruz2016

Today the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council launched a bracket to determine the Official Hot Dog Condiment Champion. Their bracket separates wet and dry condiments, but in the end there will only be one winner of these 16 competitors: sauerkraut, ketchup, mustard, cole slaw, chili, BBQ sauce, mayonnaise, onions, cheese, tomatoes, sweet peppers, hot peppers, bacon, pickles and pulled pork.

John Del Signore refuses to even dignify this "competition" with a comment, but has firmly declared his anti-ketchup stance during some casual office talk. Yakas took his silence as an opportunity to take one last swing for ketchup, however: "It's just like mustard defenders to disappear conveniently right when the harsh light of injustice is shined upon their faces."

Update: Del Signore has issued this statement: "At a very young age my younger brother fell prey to the sick and twisted subculture of ketchup-on-hot dogs. My family tried everything to help him pull his life together, but nothing worked, and in the end our only resort was tough love. He now lives in isolation deep in south Brooklyn, and we barely speak. Soiling hot dogs with ketchup is a perverse abomination, and one that I find difficult to discuss, for obvious personal reasons. I will have no further comment on this matter—enough lives have been destroyed."

It's the second-most popular hot dog condiment though:

"In 2005, the US-based National Hot Dog & Sausage Council (part of the American Meat Institute) found mustard to be the most popular condiment, with 32% of respondents preferring it; 23% of Americans said they preferred ketchup; chili came in third at 17%, followed by relish at 9% and onions at 7%. Southerners showed the strongest preference for chili, while Midwesterners showed the greatest affinity for ketchup."

And don’t use the word “bossy” when you are near a hot dog either.

FUNHDC. If I want ketchup (catsup for you retards) then I’ll put ketchup on my hotdog. And mustard. And chili. And, and melted cheddar, on a toasted bun. And the bun had melted butter on it, yeah, melted butter on a toasted bun with melted cheddar and then the hot dog, and chili and ketchup and mustard, and jalepeneos. FUNHDC.

I use to also put onions on my hot dogs, but the last few years raw onions and my stomach no longer get along together; alas....

When I was in the first grade the lunch room served hot dogs maybe every couple of weeks. They had a sauce we put on the buns and I thought it was pretty good, maybe a special sauce.

Then one of my class mates told me they simply mixed the mayonnaise, mustard and ketchup together to make the line go faster.

Ketchup on a hotdog is an abomination.

Mustard. Relish, onions and kraut if any are available are definite.

It’s bad enough that my wife puts ketchup on her hotdogs she also puts it on her steak! It’s an addiction.

I'll have whatever I want on my hotdog.
99% of the time ketchup is on it.

I was at Gene And Judes once...ONCE
They refuse to give you ketchup for your hotdog.
Screw that. I'll never go back...
And I ain't missing anything. Most over rated hotdog in Chicago.

The best condiments for your hot dog are the one’s of your own choosing. Mine include catsup. In fact I usually run out of room to keep adding stuff!
