hot dogs and beer

there once was a fastfood chain in central indiana called lum's. its speciality was hot dogs steamed in beer.

i ate there a few times and liked them cooked that way. so last year, i decided to boil some hot dogs directly in beer for the same taste.

i cooked four hot dogs using this recipe -- one 12-ounce can of beer -- budweiser that time -- for every two dogs.

i put the pan on my stove and it started to boil. well, i found out the hard way that if you boil a carbonated liquid, it'll cook quicker.

the beer spilled onto my stove and my kitchen smelled like a brewery for a couple of days.
