The National Hot Dog Month 2012 Tour stopped in Wakefield, MA today for a visit to one of the three “Pearls” of greater Boston mobile hot dog vendors: Fred’s Franks. Owner Carl Galasso was out cooking on the Green Eggs, wearing his signature shades. We brought by some Pearl Jalapeno Franks so he could cook us up an ATOMIC SHNURBLE!
As usual, the Green Eggs were all fired up and loaded with Pearl All Beef Franks, sausages and Chourico. The Shnurble is a Pearl Frank (in regular, jumbo, or monster size) with sweet cabbage, mayonnaise, Carl’s “Sharashababa” sauce, and Chourico. I coined the aforementioned ATOMIC SHNURBLE today; I will be honored if Carl continues to use that moniker for one of the funkiest hot dogs you will ever eat.
Today marked Drew Bennet’s first appearance on the tour this year. He’s helping me out with the video and he’s taking pictures for the Hot Dog Stories Facebook Page and his Benspark Blog. He’ll also be sampling the food alongside me. Drew opted for a Jumbo Shnurble today- a half pound Pearl all beef frank. That is one big, honking hot dog!
It was so big, Drew had to take a little nap afterwards!
I had a regular Shnurble with a Pearl Jalapeno Frank (ATOMIC SHNURBLE)….
…and ceremoniously chowed down!
Carl and I yucked it up on camera and Drew and I shot a bunch of good footage for the upcoming “dogumentary.”
After a bit of a wait, the video of our visit to Fred’s franks is UP!
HAPPY NATIONAL HOT DOG MONTH!!!!!!!
