-- The term hot dog is credited to sports cartoonist Tad Dorgan. At a baseball game in New York in 1901, vendors began selling hot dachshund sausages in rolls. The average American is believed to eat approximately 60 hot dogs every year. It is estimated over seven billion hot dogs will be eaten by Americans between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Source

-- From the classic Coney Island Dog of New York to the tortilla-wrapped Bacon Burrito Dog served up at Pink's in Los Angeles, The Great American Hot Dog Book takes you on a tour of each state and reveals the inside story of where the hot dog originated and how it became one of America's favorite food icons.
Whether at ball games, picnics or family cookouts, Americans consume around 20 billion hot dogs a year, so it's no wonder they are permanently part of our culinary traditions.
