    Default Good hot dogger?

    I was thinking of buying a hot dogger. Just wondering if there were some that work better than others.

    Get the muff pot. Made of stainless steel rather than aluminum (dissipates heat slower). Its also deeper and will hold more. I had one on my Fusion and will likely get another...

    i never had one worth a crap... you have to pack it full with food or foil other wise it is beat to death and yucked... if you get the aluminum one it turns every thing black as it ages and things move around in it..

    about the only thing i found that would heat okay in the was the MRE meals... but i prefered to put them in their own heaters and inside my coat

    in realitiy... it is a cool, nee-toe... that will largly go unused

    I am forced to disagree 100%....

    I used my muffpot on just about every trip I went on last year. Jalapeno cheddar chese dogs, hot pockets, bratwurst, eggrolls, etc. They all cooked well and didn't disappoint during a trail break.

    AKmud told me a trick with the aluminum foil. Dont use it. Instead get plastic oven bags (the kind they cook turkeys and whatnot in) and you're set.

    A must buy, IMO...

    another vote for muffpot and oven bags. though it's more of a warmer and less of a cooker in my experience.

    Hot Dogger is used on every trip around here, too. They are great for those breakfast burritos you get at the Tesoro gas station for the fuel up prior to heading out. Just place them in the Dogger in the paper wrapper they come in. They'll be perfect after your first hour or two of snow shredding. Never put anything in them that's not securely wrapped up separately. It's not a cooking pot, it's a warming tray.

    Absolutely. If you're taking stuff from the house thats frozen, definitely thaw it out in the fridge the night before you go....this will help a lot.
