    I have done it with the hot dog in the bun and then steam. Works great!

    I'm with you. I've always preferred the commercial buns over bakery buns. I think it's because they don't compete with the meat. (I'm a poet.) The dog should be the dominant flavor, especially after I've put a lot of time into charring it to perfection.
    Your method for steaming the buns makes all the difference. A cold stiff bun is no fun. (Ha.)

    Have tried this and it makes the hotdogs just like the ones you used to get at baseball games!! Makes a big difference in taste.
