  • July is National Hot Dog Month, and to kick it off the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council conducted a poll on America’s hot dog preferences.
  • According to the council, Americans will eat 150 million hot dogs on July 4thalone, the single biggest hot dog consumption day of the year.
  • When it comes to how they enjoy them, New York style is the favorite, meaning an all-beef hot dog topped with steamed unions and deli-style mustard.
  • Coming in second is Chicago style, an all-beef hot dog layered with yellow mustard, dark green relish, chopped raw onion, pickle spear, sport peppers, tomato slices and topped with a dash of celery salt and served in a poppy seed bun.
  • Finally, coming in third is the Michigan Coney, an all-beef dog with meaty chili sauce on top, with mustard and onion.
  • The council notes that the only thing that shouldn’t be on a hot dog is ketchup, unless you are a kid.
  • As for what to pair that dog with, 76% eat their hot dog with soda, followed by:
    • Beer (57%)
    • Lemonade (54%)
