R.I. Hot Weiners: gaggers (gaggahs), weenies
RI hot weiners have nicknames, such as gaggers (gaggahs), belly busters, weeners, and weenies.
A weiner is typically made from a small, thin frankfurter made of veal and pork, thus giving it a different taste from a traditional hot dog made of beef. Once placed in a steamed bun, the wiener is topped with a meat sauce seasoned with a myriad of spices and covered in finely chopped onions, celery salt and mustard.
Wieners with all the toppings are called "all the way"!
