Forget steaming, grilling, and char-broiling: Sometimes you just crave the crackly, crunchy snap of a deep-fried hot dog.
Where to Get It: At legendary Rutt’s Hut in northern New Jersey, the beef-pork hot dogs (from Jersey-based Thumann’s) are called “Rippers,” an appropriately violent name for the skin-mangling that franks undergo during the deep-frying process. You can specify varying degrees of fried meat, from an “In-and-Outer” to a “Cremator,” then top the crispy product with mustard and Rutt’s signature sweet relish, made with cabbage, onions, and carrots. 417 River Rd., Clifton, NJ
