Hot diggity! National Hot Dog Day is Saturday, July 23. It's time to honor one of America's all time favorite fast foods.

Whether you like your franks straight up, covered in mustard, drizzled with ketchup, blanketed in cheese or rolled in relish, Americans consume 7 billion dogs between Memorial Day and Labor Day, according to the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council .

Who has the best hot dog in Rockland County? Cast your vote and have influence over who will take the coveted honor of top dog in the county.

Born in Germany where they’re called Frankfurter Wurstchen, America's signature hot dog is usually made of beef and served grilled, steamed, deep fried or boiled.There are also chicken and turkey varieties and meatless marvels.

Americans consume about 20 billion hot dogs a year -- about seven franks per person. Los Angeles eats more wieners than any other U.S. city -- 34 million pounds -- followed by New York and Phoenix, according to the council. O'Hare International Airport sells more hot dogs than New York's LaGuardia Airport and Los Angeles Airport combined.

The word "hot dog" likely came from German immigrants who brought both sausages and dachshund dogs to the U.S. in the late 1800s. The first hot dogs were called "dachshund sausages."

Don't forget to vote for the best hot dog in Rockland County. You have until 4 p.m. Thursday, July 28 to cast your ballot. You can vote daily, once a day.
