DJ.. You ask many a question.. Not a problem to say the least, but lets hear of some of your battle stories! I can picture you trying to start a business… Just come out and say it! Instead of getting the whole world to reply, specify your location and get some more local input there….
Around here in West Michigan, it’s nothing fancy, just a typical hot dog bun.. The fresher the better! Luckily we have a decent local bakery (Bun Basket) and commercial bakery (Oven Fresh (where my grandma retired from), though I think Kelloggs now owns it)… Buddy sitting here having a coctail with me looking over my shoulder also suggested Arnies Bakery here in town..
Only thing is, if your doing the Split Bun style, make sure you’re able to grill the sides… Seems very important from all the reading I’ve done… Like I said in your latest cart info post, do the research thru the Roadfood Search function…
