Robb Walsh on Genre-Defying Hot Dogs
He visits Janak Country Market in Hallettsville, Texas:
Janak’s jumbo hot dog is just too good to call a hot dog. It reminds me of that Dave Hickey quote: “Rock n’ roll is like Tex-Mex. As it improves in quality, it ceases to be what it is.” I think you can substitute hot dogs for rock n’ roll or Tex-Mex in that equation. In creating their jumbo hot dog, the folks at Janak Country Market have improved the quality of each component to the point that the sausage sandwich ceases to be recognizable as a hot dog.
