THE WILD DOG
Personally I steam my dogs. They say right on the box do not boil. Simming a regular dog will make it shrink, unless its a natural casing dog. Griddle dogs are very good if you know what you are doing with them. Rippers are a great way to avoid waste. You toss it in the fryer and be done with it.
my dogs have a 2 hour steam life. Sometimes I get that far, sometimes I only get an hour. It depends on alot of things. I’ve found that too much water in the steamer creates too much moisture and the dogs plump and split on the ends. Too less will actually brown them.
If you all you are serving is dogs in your restaurant, you shouldn’t have ANY waste. Most places are cook to order anyways. You don’t have ice cream already scooped and on a cone do you ? Don’t dare mention microwaving a dog again. LOL (jk)
As far as griddle dogs, the best way it to pre split them and get a steak weight and lay it flat down and put the weight on it for 3 mins, and you’re good to go.
