3. Does this belong in I/P forum?

 

Only jesting.

I never liked Hebrew National.

I get my hot dogs fresh from Chicago at this location:

Best. Hot Dogs. Bar. None.

I freeze 'em and bring 'em home maybe twice a year.

4. my dad was a dispatcher for a trucking company in the 30`s and 40`s

the word on the teletype machine was rabbi`s meant meat haulers out of the chicago stockyards at the pa line to bless the meat and tag the shipment as kosher.

looks like now they just do it in the slaughterhouses.

5. The idea of a kosher hot dog seems absurd to me.

It IS a hot dog, after all.

7. The idea seems of no use

It also depends on the personal choice. Some people like hot dog. But according to me this idea is not going to work.
