2012 Best Hot Dog

Boston Super Dog

Not all dogs are created equal. There are the flavorless grocery-store tubes (we’re looking at you, Oscar Mayer), and then there is the behemoth from food truck Boston Super Dog (formerly Speed’s). This half-pound frank is marinated in apple cider before it’s smoked, grilled, and basted in barbecue sauce (go all the way with chili, mustard, chopped onion, and relish). You’ll never look a packaged dog in the bun again.
