It’s National Hot Dog Day! June 19 marks a day of celebrating a classic summertime treat. The National Hot Dog and Sausage Council established National Hot Dog Day in 1991. What better way to bring in the day than to get the inside scoop on 5 specialty hot dogs that you can only get here in Augusta, Ga. A sausage dog is also included in the list.

Have you ever wondered to yourself whether a hot dog and a sausage dog are the same thing?

The answer is technically yes. Most of the time we think of a sausage dog as containing pork. Hot dogs are actually a type of sausage! Hot dogs are slimmer parboiled sausages made with ground meat (usually pork, beef, or sometimes chicken).

Enough hotdog history! Here are all the deets on these 5 specialty hot dogs you can only find in Augusta.
