Watch the First Hot Dog in Outer Space

Watch the First Hot Dog in Outer Space

Guys at Zog’s Dogs managed to recover and eat their space weenie

Hot dog reaches outer limits of Earth's atmosphere

We all heard about NASA’s rover Curiosity landing successfully on Mars during their latest mission this past Monday. But fewer were aware of an equally important space travel triumph: that of a soaring hot dog into the upper reaches of the atmosphere.

Many of us have already seen food, like this infamous sushi roll, be launched into outer space. But usually the food heads to space, never to be seen again on earth.

Not only do the guys from San Francisco-based Zog’s Dogs get the weenie into space, they manage to retrieve their hot dog once it comes plummeting back to earth.

At the end of the video, we watch as one team member takes a victory bite of the hot dog, which somehow managed to stay intact throughout its extraterrestrial journey.

In celebration of their feat, Zog’s Dog’s is launching a $5 Space Dog Combo that comes with Astronaut Ice Cream for dessert.

After much deliberation we have the 10 finalists in our N.J.'s best hot dog joint showdown.

To recap, we started last month with a call for nominations. More than 100 places were nominated all were put on ballots, separated onto North I, North II, Central and South Jersey/The Shore.

The top six vote-getters in each region were 24 of our semifinalists I picked the other 26, and visited all 50 semifinalists over three weeks. I alone picked the 10 finalists no voting was involved in their selection.

Many legendary hot dog joints were left off the finalist list, and there were surprise newcomers. But as with all our previous N.J.'s best showdowns, this competition wasn't about popularity, ranking or reputation — it was about the hot dogs sampled at each place during the competition.

You can vote starting now for the Readers' Choice winner the poll is below. I will pick the overall winner.

Hiram's Roadstand, Fort Lee

Hiram's is located at what was once the hot dog crossroads of New Jersey - hot dog landmark Callahan's was across the street. Callahan's is now in Norwood, but Hiram's remains, with its brick exterior, tiny parking lot and even tinier men's room.

There apparently never was a owner named Hiram, according to current co-owner Pete Demiris. When his boss went on vacation, he and Jeff Escudero, employees at the time, added chili dogs to the menu. They now own the place, and the chili dogs are recognized as among the state's best.
