Hot Dog Days of Summer
It’s September already… the kids are long back in school, football is back in full gear, and our baseball team is playing just to be done with the season. It must be fall – you know – autumn!
Well, not in Arizona. We know better. There’s at least a month, probably more, left of full-time summer heat. We call these the “dog days” of summer. And here at Joe’s Farm Grill we know of no better way to get through the dog days than with the all-American, quintessential summertime food – the hot dog. And not just any hot dogs, but some incredibly creative, uber-delicious dogs you won’t find anywhere else. Do tell.
First, the hot dog itself: all-beef, natural casing franks from one of our favorite producers, Farmland Foods. Clean, beefy taste, no fillers, just the right amount of savory spiciness, and that distinctive “snap” of a natural-casing dog, especially when grilled on the broiler. We’ve tasted all the top brands, from the “famous” to the “higher authority” and everything in between, and we sincerely believe that these are top tier, second to none.
The bun: baked fresh for us daily, we hand-slice each from top to bottom so that we have two sides to butter and grill for each hot dog. Nice touch.
The toppings: in addition to our regular and chili-cheese dogs, we are featuring 10 specialty hot dogs for the entire month of September. They range from the “huh, what?” sounding garlic mashed potatoes and lingonberries (fantastic), to the quirky Cheez Whiz, crumbled Ruffles potato chips, mustard and onions (“why haven’t I thought of this?”), to the over-the-top ham, Swiss, fried egg, Dijon aioli (a big bite of hot dog heaven). Each hot dog is time-tested (our customer’s favorites from last year’s Dog Days) and certified delicious!
So, get your hotdog-lovin’ self in to Joe’s Farm Grill and try one of these dogs. Wait, don’t try just one, but save some $$ by doubling up and ordering two; mix-and-match at your pleasure. Let us know here about your favorites, as well as any ideas you might have for creating a new hot dog sensation.
Have a cool and delicious rest of the summer!
