With chronicles of various regional eating establishments, this collectible cookbook is not only a handy road-trip guide, but it also shares America's most legendary recipes for wieners, sauces, chilis, slaws, relishes, side dishes and more.

Becky Mercuri, as in all her other fine books, has once again gone above and beyond in her quest to document the historical authenticity, modern day excellence, and (with apologies to A.B.) just plane ol' good eats!
The Great American Hot Dog Book does for hot dogs what hot sauce did for the lowly chicken wing: it takes the common and turns it into the exceptional! No matter your station in life, you'll never be able to look down your nose at the hot dog ever again! The recipes that Ms Becky has researched, tested, and then included in this book will see to it that you won't!
She has done a great job of providing us with the knowledge and recipes that examine and celebrate the various regional differences and preferences for hot dogs across this great land of ours. And there are some undeniable difference, for sure. Just ask any hot dog vendor in Chicago for ketchup on your dog and see what happens...
This is a great book on a great American tradition.
Thank you Becky Mercuri for another outstanding resource on traditional American food.
Had been looking for recipes for Chicago Hot Dogs and Cincinnati Chili. The Great American Hot Dog Book came through for me beautifully. This delightful cookbook included the best recipes for Cincinnati Chili and Chicago Hot Dogs I've been able to find.
If you're like me then you probably need more than just hot dogs for a meal. No problem. The author, Becky Mercuri has included recipes for things like fries, sauces, and chilis.
Are hot dogs good for you? I don't care. If you assemble hot dogs like Becky Mercuri tells you to do then you'll have one of the best meals on the planet!
