First of all, I have always preferred hot dogs with no toppings, just a dog and a bun. When I was growing up, the dogs were usually boiled, with an occasional charcoal grilled one at cookouts.

When I was about 10 years old, my family got stuck in a traffic jam on our way to Ocean City, Maryland. As we crept along, we came to a Howard Johnson's restaurant. We went in and had lunch, and I ordered a hot dog. It was cooked on a griddle, the bun was top-sliced, the sides of the bun had been buttered and the bun warmed on the griddle. It was heavenly. I still love them cooked just that way.
