    Toured a hot dog factory today. Ask Me Anything.

    Had the pleasure (mostly) of touring a hot-dog factory today. Wasn't nearly as terrifying as I was expecting, but then again it was a higher quality all-beef joint. I could ramble on about what I saw, but thought people might have specific questions. So drop a reply and I'll try my best to answer.

    I think it is mostly lean round. Though they add back in various trimmings for fat (including from the brisket)

    see any chicken lips?
    beautiful
    yeah you are

    Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
    lol

    By "all beef" do you think it includes the penis?

    When I was veggo I tried castrated steer's bits, figuring, hey the animal didn't die for this. (Balls have taste/texture like beefy mushrooms from what I remember.)

    What's the skin on the hot dog made out of? And why do I sometimes get tiny crunchy bits when I eat them? By sometimes, I mean always. Are the bits bone?

    This place had three different types of casings that they used. Small ones for hotdogs were made from wood cellulose (however, the casings are removed before packaging), small ones for other sausages from sheep and goat (I'm assuming intestine), and for larger sausages pork (intestine).

    You assume correctly that smaller casings are sheep intestines and the larger sausages are hog intestines.... but there are some places that use a cellulose casing instead of intestines.....
