Mac Dog with Smoked Bacon

Skeptical Investigation

Investigating a Humongous Mac and Cheese Hot Dog

None We’re lovers. You know that. But every now and again, something comes across our desks that just seems... suspicious. Because of the tremendous material upside to all our lives if these claims pan out, we at times put ourselves in harm’s way to investigate. Albeit skeptically.

We call it: Skeptical Investigation. (Trademark pending.)

That the Mac Dog with Smoked Bacon at Lucky Dog Ptown is the ultimate hot dog and worth a special trip to Provincetown.

Our famished investigator found the place just off the main drag, grabbed a seat and ordered the hot dog in question. When it arrived, a hint of fear crept up his spine, and here’s why.

The dog: one pound, all-beef kosher. The mac and cheese: made with sharp cheddar and pasta goodness, and blanketing the entire dog. The bacon: locally smoked, slightly candied but not too sweet, super thick and rather crispy. The bun: freshly baked at the Pepperidge Farm bakery in Rhode Island and driven in that morning. Total weight of the creation, which was sliced in half and served in a basket/bucket: nearly three pounds.

Our investigator threw caution to the wind and began devouring the beast. Any cheese or bacon that dropped from his grasp was caught in the basket/bucket for future consumption. Eventually, he finished the entire hot dog.

Add this thing to “the beautiful surroundings” and “Norman Mailer’s house” as reasons for hitting P-town this summer. Seriously, it’s insanely good.
