School assignment edit request[edit]

Heading added for clarity and archiving by czar  15:12, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

I want to edit this page for a school assignment. Below is my proposed lead section for the article. Since this is an educational assignment, the lead section must be posted under my user id Ivy104. I do not have an autoconfirmed account, so I can not post the lead section.

A hot dog is a sausage, normally served on a bun with condiments. Hot dogs can be made from pork, beef, turkey, chicken, or vegetarian meat substitutes. The outer covering can be a natural casing made of intestines or an artificially produced casing used for cooking, making the hot dog skinless. Condiment preferences vary around the world and specific condiments can be popular in different regions of a country. Hot dogs can have serious, but reducible, health effects including listeriosis, cancer, and choking. Specialty hot dogs hold several world records. Initially, hot dogs were sold from carts on the street, at sporting events, and amusement parks, but are now widely available at restaurants, convenience stores, and even cooked in homes.

The concept of the hot dog can be traced back centuries in Germany, Austria, and the United States but, controversy surrounds the origin of the invention and its naming as a hot dog.

..and where are the references to the above? (✉→BWilkins←✎) 00:50, 23 March 2013 (UTC)

I got all the information from the body of the article hot dog. I read in the learn how section that the lead section should "summarize the key points" of the article's contents.Ivy104 (talk) 00:54, 23 March 2013 (UTC)


…does not redirect here. The template should be removed. -- (talk) 03:27, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

video to make it

Good idea. I uploaded File:A Mark of Wholesome Meat (1964).ogv, which has a segment on frankfurter-making between five and six minutes in, along with a two other videos (below) that should spice up the article. I may post more in the future just for Commons, but I thought this batch would be great for the article for now.

Beanie Weenie???[edit]

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 (talk) 14:05, 20 November 2013 (UTC)

suggestion re: NC section of hot dog page[edit]

The NC paragraph on the hot dog page mentions a NC hot dog vendor that has been in business fir a long time. "The Roast Grill" in downtown Raleigh also deserves mentioning here - it has been in continuous operation since 1940. They serve only hot dogs "Carolina style" (no ketchup allowed!) & 7 oz glass bottled Coca-Colas. Because of its proximity to the state capital, it is not unusual to see state legislators & construction workers side by side eating their hot dogs at the counter.
