I have been living in Canada for a couple years and have noticed the rapid nationwide spread of the Montreal hot dog, commonly known as the Steamie. It was originally a Montreal thing but Smoke's Poutinerie, a nationwide chain, have started a Weinerie and have popularised the Steamie across Canada. I notice now the prevalence of the steamie rivals the regular type of hot dog, perhaps something should be said about it in the Canada section, as it is the predominant trend in Canadian hot dogs.
I am from New York (and have also lived up and down the east coast) and have never heard of "Beanie Weenies." As far as I know, this typical children's dish is commonly called franks and beans. Please add that to the sentence in the first paragraph, as another alias, if you will. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 14:05, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
- How far down the East coast have you lived, because here in NC it is always called beanie wienies. Not to mention the fact that the Van Camp's brand is "Beanee Weenee", and I find it hard to believe you never saw them in a store. --Khajidha (talk) 18:33, 8 September 2014 (UTC)
I too, only having been born on east coast, and lived/worked/traveled along it. Been other places too. I also searched on grocery stores I know only in SE.... lolz.. http://www.harristeeter.com/search.aspx?srchTxt=Beanie%20Weenies
(I suspect "Vienna sausages") marketing here. IMO. I suspect that what the mean, nothing to do with "hot dogs" tho.

Please do not enter a hotdog as a sandwich. Saying it is like a sandwich is more appropriate to call it similar to a sandwich. I sandwich is always prepared in a bun while technically hotdogs are prepared on a bun.

Redirect from "tube steak"
- Tube steak is a common nickname for hot dogs where I live. --Khajidha (talk) 13:01, 17 November 2014 (UTC)
Etymology logically comes before history because it describes the nature and history of the name. From that chronology stems the history. Adding the etymology section after first talking about hot dog's history is like putting the cart before the horse. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 10:22, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
