The National Hot Dog and Sausage Council (NHDSC) today launched its fourth annual Hot Dog March Madness bracket to determine the best regional hot dog in America. The bracket features 16 different regional hot dogs from the North, South, Midwest and West, each with unique styles and toppings beloved by locals. People can vote for their favorite hot dogs online via polls on the NHDSC Facebook page with winners moving on to the next round. A different matchup will be posted each day through April 4, when the regional hot dog champion will be announced.

Regional hot dog choices include New York, New Jersey, Boston and Philadelphia in the North; Chicago, Michigan, Cleveland and Kansas City in the Midwest; West Virginia, Georgia, Cincinnati and Washington, D.C. in the South; and Sonoran (Arizona), California, Seattle and Alaska in the West. A full listing of regional hot dogs and details on how they’re prepared is available at www.hot-dog.org. Individuals who vote in all 15 matchups will receive a free NHDSC t-shirt. The participant who shares the polls with the most people on Facebook will win a gift card for his or her favorite hot dogs.
