The big secret of the MS-QOTD is that it’s often about what’s on my mind at the time of writing and right now, I am craving a huge chili dog.  Sadly, the hot dog restaurant that sold the massive peanut-butter-and-banana dog has closed due to unpaid taxes and my stomach likely wouldn’t be up to a mass of beef and salt, but I’m still wishing I could hit the local Sonic drive-in for one with mustard, onions and chili, leading to today’s pork shoulder and chicken shavings query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) will allow for tofu dogs or grilled carrots for the vegans and vegetarian among us, but no arguing whether it’s a sammich or not, asking: Whaddaya want on YOUR hot dog?

Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. There used to be this place on Main Street that served Vienna Beef hotdogs. My favorite was mustard, cheese and onions.

  2. I’m definitely always in the mood for a Costco hot dog with mustard. It’s just a great classic pairing there.
