From the frontiers of a science, gustatation and mastication, a reader reports:
I’m more convinced now than ever that the hot dog deserves a special precipice among the gods. Through some recent trial and error I’ve found that they practically cook themselves. If you place them on a grill and walk away, as they cook they will kink up and slowly turn themselves over. I think the trick is that you can’t have the heat up too high (I’m using the grill on my cooktop). If things go well in the next few weeks I may be able to find that magic temperature where the hot dog will be able to do a full 360 degree rotation all by itself! Imagine the possibilities.
