How hotdogs are made

I’ve seen this info before in a different video, but it remains as interesting as it is unappetizing…

      Have you guys ever had a hand made hot dog? When you get one that has meat that has been selected from the trim of quality pork and beef (and nothing else), and made in small batches with care, they are a very rewarding project and are incredibly good. this commercial production is not a hod dog. its ground animals with bullshit fillers designed for profit not flavor and quality. dont ever use this as your guide to judge quality charcuterie. they go in real casing and dont have modified food starch or sawdust or effing corn syrup. this is NOT a traditional hot dog. this is wrong.

    That was a lot better than I expected. I was expecting the addition of unrecognizable meat and more fillers, but no, everything added was food products we eat in other food. Maybe they add all the cow lips and eyeballs when the cameras are off?

      Let’s just pretend animal protein is animal protein, okay?? I wanna still eat hot dogs without gagging. Hmm, that sounded wrong.

    The grossest part was when the meat was pureed and looked…well, rather poop-ish, but other than that, not too bad.

    What I didn’t get was when he said the black line disappears when the hot dogs are cooked. I still saw them. Did I hear it wrong?
