Hot diggity dog, July 23 marks National Hot Dog Day, a 24-hour celebration of the humble wiener. While this cylindrical meat treat often plays second-fiddle to burgers at backyard BBQs, we should be proud to celebrate them on this marked occasion.

Sonic & 7-11 put up some discounts but no freebies. With national chain Pilot Flying J, you have to jump through hoops just to grab a coupon posted on Pilot's social media accounts. You can nab a free Oscar Meyer dog at this chain of roadside stops. Or don’t.

But doesn’t the humble wiener deserve some recognition? If you're making you're own, surprise everyone with this simple trick.
