National Hot Dog Day

National Hot Dog Day. Maybe a great day to grill some dogs on the grill or even hit up your favorite hot dog joint. Not too sure when this happens. Almost seems like a random date is set. #NationalHotDogDay

National Hot Dog Day

National Hot Dog Day #NationalHotDogDay

This day in 2018, is held on July 18, 2018. This day is held the third Wednesday of July. July is National Hot Dog Month. Sources show this day started in 1991.

I like my hot dogs grilled the best and almost burnt. Not to mention, I like mine either plain or with just chili and cheese.  Sometimes I like to roast them in the oven too. However, I am not big on eating them if they are boiled, but I still do. I just prefer grilled or roasted in the oven. Sometimes even deep-fried ones are good too.

Sonic has one of my favorite hot dogs the Chili Cheese Coney. I also like the pretzel bun hot dogs too.

According Days of the Year they have this to say.

A day for parades, events, and hotdogs in abundance. Celebrated all over the world, National Hot Dog Day is an opportunity to raise money for charities whilst combining large quantities of sausages, bread, ketchup, mustard and onions.
