All-Star Hot Dog Derby

Hot Dog!

Before the Home Run Derby, there was the hot dog derby. Five hot dogs, three judges, and one winner. Bryan Caswell of REEF in Houston made a killer chorizo dog that ended up bringing home top prize. I had a great time hanging out with Bryan, Graham Elliot, Merlin Verrier, Nick Elmi, the Andrew Zimmern’s Canteen crew, and everyone who stopped by to say hello.

You can try the AZ Canteen Dog at Andrew Zimmern’s Canteen. Find out where to find the truck.
