I heard yesterday of Robb's Podcast about hotdogs. They made it sound as if all hotdogs were gluten free. Is this the case? If not which ones are?

The easiest thing to do is read the label of the hot-dogs you're thinking about buying. Look for any grains as fillers. If they have anything in them besides meat, spices, sometimes milk or egg powder, maybe water, and maybe nitrates (if you buy the commercial ones), then I'd worry -- especially if they say "vegetable fillers" or "grain filler".
It's best to buy from places that you know source their animals properly -- but I think it's interesting that the old "Lips and Assholes" comment (does anyone know -that- reference????) is actually a BONUS for us. Hot dogs are often made out of by-products.... organs, skin, fat, and other typically "uncouth" forms of meat. If you're sourcing from healthy animals, this can be a special gift -- organ and non-muscle meats that your kids or the picky members of your family will actually EAT!
