Hot dogs

What are traditional hotdogs really made of? Well here’s what and how.

Beef, pig, and chicken trimmings (the leftovers from cutting steaks and stuff) are ground up and mixed with salt, food starch, water, corn syrup, and flavorings.  The mixture is mixed and purred even more before getting piped into casings. Then they are sent through a liquid smoke shower, and then baked.  They are cooled and the casings are peeled off. The hotdogs are inspected and then packaged up and put on store shelves.
