    Dougie Luv shows off the $100 hot dog.

A Canadian frankfurter chef introduced a $100 dog (about $98 in US dollars) this week at his Vancouver restaurant.

Called the Dragon Dog, this foot-long weiner is made from Kobe beef and is infused with 100-year-old Cognac. The meat is sauteed in a lobster sauce and drizzled with truffle oil, says owner Dougie Luv.

Luv doesn't just dish these out, he needs 12-hour notice to order up the ingredients.

Personally, I'd prefer a Fenway Frank. At Fenway, of course. Or just buy a pound of Oscar Meyer franks for about $6.50 at your local grocery store.
