Lots of hot dogs will be on the grill this weekend, but which one reigns supreme in the state of Louisiana?

Each year, my girlfriends and I throw a hot dog party. It's a pool party with tons of food and, you guessed it, hot dogs on the grill. They're a staple of summer cookouts. Now, maybe you think you don't like hot dogs, but I would be willing to bet that you just haven't had the right kind of hot dog.

There are countless ways to make, cook and serve up a good dog.

In fact, People Magazine set out to find the best hot dogs across the nation. They found what they believe is the best dog in every single state. With different meats in the actual dog, a variety of buns and numerous toppings, this is sure to spark a culinary pilgrimage.

For the state of Louisiana, it's Dat Dog who is serving up the best hot dogs. What began as a 475-foot shack has grown to multiple locations across New Orleans. People Mag recommends the off-menu Duck Special. It's a duck sausage topped with barbecue sauce, mustard, blackberry sauce, and bacon.
