What Makes The Fenway Frank Hot Dog So Unique?
By ANNA STAROPOLI
Nothing beats hot dogs when it comes to baseball game meals, whether watching the sport in the stadium or at home with friends. Baseball fans and hot dog lovers alike agree that Fenway Park's famous Fenway Frank is the one to beat.
Fenway Franks are notable for their cooking technique. Standard hot dogs tend to be grilled or steamed, whereas Fenway's are boiled and grilled, maintaining their moisture and juiciness while also developing a textured skin.
Fenway Park has been open since 1912, and although the stadium parted ways with its original hot dog manufacturer in 2009, it has since partnered with Kayem Foods to revive the traditional Fenway Frank. Like most hot dogs, a squirt of mustard or relish can be added to complete the meal.
