hot dogs

I was thinking that turkey hot dogs can't have the usual ingredients of lips and a**h*les. The latter, kind of, cloacas, but no lips. Or nostrils for that matter.

I wanted to post a story about Muslims wanting to ban hot dogs in the US because of the pig meat in them. Changed my mind. But I want to say a Florida woman was fired for eating a BLT on her lunch break. No, not because of the tomato or lettuce, but the bacon got her axed. Seems that the company is mostly run my muslims.

They should have a Nathan's Hot Dog eating contest where Muslim's can enter.

I eat hotdogs and don't worry about what is in them. None of the "parts" that go in there are harmful to you, and people in various parts of the world eat things that are much worse. Now hot dogs in other countries might be suspect.

I remember a dog at a relative's ranch. When people would hunt there they would clean their birds and the dog would eat the parts that the people didn't want, and it never seemed to harm him. I've also known of coyotes to eat everything but the bones, and people in Africa to do the same thing. So if you don't have to think about what it is that you are eating, it won't hurt you.

They don't put feathers and beaks in the hot dog, they sell those parts to a rendering company that processes them and sells the resulting product to companies that make animal food and cosmetics. They feed that to livestock and then sell the livestock for people to eat. BTW, my wife knows a lot about the rendering industry and she insists on buying organic eggs and organic milk.

Mechanically separated poultry is a paste-like and batter-like poultry product produced by forcing bones, with attached edible tissue, through a sieve or similar device under high pressure to separate bone from the edible tissue. Mechanically separated poultry has been used in poultry products since the late 1960's. In 1995, a final rule on mechanically separated poultry said it was safe and could be used without restrictions. However, it must be labeled as "mechanically separated chicken or turkey" in the product's ingredients statement. The final rule became effective November 4, 1996. Hot dogs can contain any amount of mechanically separated chicken or turkey.

I think humans have evolved eating old, aged meat of all sorts. Just think. The cavemen would kill a big animal like a wooly mammonth, then they would eat what they could. They would keep going back day after day, eating what they could until it got used up. In the mean time the meat was drying and ageing. This must be the reason we have such a fondness for BACON. Hot dogs are just another form of BACON.
It has only been fairly recently in history that we have had refrigeration. Hot dogs, bacon, baloney, etc. are just modern forms of an aged animal carcass.

Ah, rendering plants...the original recyclers. I visited one on a field trip. That's an odor you won't get out of your sinus cavity for a couple days. Mike Rowe should tour the Green Bay rendering plant with elementary kids on a hot August day when several semi's are waiting in line to drop off their loads. He'd probably return to school with a busload of vegans.

Rendering certainly isn't pretty, but it is an excellent way to get some useful products out of what would otherwise be landfill.

I bet cavemen figured out smoking pretty quickly. Brining would have taken longer. I've had some salmon filets brining in a cooler on my deck since Saturday. Took half out today to airdry, will smoke those tonight. The rest will sit in the cooler another day or 2 and then come out for smoking.

I don't have anything against mechanically separated birds per se depending on how much binders, sugars, and other things are used to reconstitute them into a shape/color recognizable as food.

Exactly....many of those who moan and groan about mechanically separated birds and such are vegetarians/vegans...and they want us to eat tofu. Um...can you say chemically and microbially separated beans? Can you? Sure, I knew you could.
