31 Days of Hot Dogs

My friend and fellow blogger Rob Merlino, Hot Dog Man, is pledging to eat a hot dog a day for the month of July at 31 different hot dog venues. Anyone can eat a hot dog each day but to travel to multiple locations and experience 31 different hot dogs in a month is a whole other endeavor all together.

If you want to know anything about Hot Dogs then Rob is your man. I went to him to help out in a couple of contests including my Fry Sauce contest a few years back. I met The Hot Dog Man in 2008 when he was still running his hot dog truck. Then we met up just last year to try out The Hot Dog Trolley. Most recently I asked if he’d reach out to hot dog nation and get some votes for Eva as she is in a photo competition with The National Hot Dog and Sausage Council. Apparently if she wins we get a $250 gift certificate for grillin items. Yay! Here is the photo.

Lunch with The Hot Dog Man

From Drop Box

Nearly two years ago I met Rob from The Hot Dog Truck. I think I had the best hot dogs ever at his truck. Rob used to run a Hot Dog Truck in Marlboro, MA. He’s no longer doing that but he is still talking Hot Dogs and doing pretty well at it. Hot Dog Man, as he is known, is an example of someone who has found a niche and passion and who is doing something with it. His blog, The Hot Dog Truck, had been dormant for over a year and continued to gather traffic because of what it offers people. Rob recently started cranking the blog back up and when he did he contacted me to talk about blogging and of course hot dogs. Continue reading Lunch with The Hot Dog Man
