Bored of all-beef or pork-beef dogs? Try a bun stuffed with something like elk, buffalo, or wild boar, and you may never go back.

Where to Get It: At Biker Jim's Gourmet Dogs, in Denver, try the elk jalapeño-cheddar brat, made with Colorado-sourced meat, or go more exotic with one of its reindeer or rattlesnake-pheasant sticks. A shmear of cream cream from a caulking gun is a standard – and surprisingly addictive – accompaniment. 2148 Larimer St., Denver, CO
