Safe BBQ

For all of you who are planning to grill hot dogs this weekend as part of the Memorial Day celebration, please practice safe BBQ!

Down here in Mexico, some of the hot dogs we buy are very, very safe. Yep, they come with their own hot dog condoms! Already installed! What will they think of next?

The first time we saw this we assumed the condom would cook off - nope - we ended up with plastic shrink-wrapped grilled dogs.

Now we know to remove the condom before grilling. Live and learn.

When I was a little girl in the '50s, the government supplied hot dogs in the school cafeteria were like this. We never had hot dogs, but they cooked the weiners sliced with sauerkraut, and we had to peel the plastic off each slice.
One more reason to not eat hot dogs...
Except at Hot Dogs Exquisitos in Santa Rosalia (they must pre-peel them for you)!
That is too funny.
One thousand bad joke ran through my mind as I read that!

We had ham that was the same way - shrink wrapped - in Germany... as you said - Live and Learn...
We lived in Turkey when my first hubby was in the Air Force, and the hot dogs there had so much cereal and dye in them they were red and even turned the water red if you boiled them instead of grilling them. Odd thing was, I craved them when I was pregnant.

This year we'll have Alpine brand quarter pound all beef hot dogs!

Love your blog, and will be back to read more about your travels aboard the Niki Wiki.
