The original was a 13-foot-long metal hot dog on wheels with an open cockpit in the center and rear, so the hotdogger could pop up. Hog dog whistles were given out starting in 1951, and many people still show up at Wienermobile events looking for the whistles. (AP Photo/Carlos Osorio)

We’re right between Memorial Day and Labor Day, which means its peak HOT-DOG SEASON.



In fact, National Hot Dog Day is TODAY . . . so someone looked into which states love hot dogs the most, using data from the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council and Google.



West Virginia is #1 . . . followed by North Carolina, South Carolina, Illinois, Maine, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Nevada.



Among individual cities, Buffalo is #1 . . . followed by Raleigh / Durham, North Carolina and Charlotte, North Carolina.
