If you are going to do them, at least do them right. That means a good dog, a good bun, a grill (or split then pan fried in butter), and a lot of "fixings". Go wild with toppings.

People think Seinfeld isn't funny today because everything it did that was funny back then has since been done to death by everyone else, making them seem retroactively lame in comparison. You see the same phenomenon happen with younger people listening to the Beatles and not getting why they were so popular either.

Go to walmart. Open freezer doors and pile your cart full. Grab another cart, and walk down every aisle piling in dry boxed sides, sodas, chips, candy. Hit the authentic refrig cases where they have chemically injected and tumbled meats and "cheese style" products some of them even "cured" for 2 hours.

or you were in a tourist place. the real good shit is actually not super easy to find because they're usually on the outskirts of small towns in the middle of nowhere because big cities can have regulations about fires indoors. I'm sure someone has written a guide to bbq in each of the various regions that could point you in the right direction because I wouldn't trust online reviews since mostly tourists write those and they don't always "get it" because they're used to KC Masterpiece andpic related which is half corn syrup
