Little Buffalo of Cranford, which has been open for about a year, makes its debut on the tour. The eatery features several types of hot dogs, including a "red hot" and a "white hot" that is similar to a bratwurst, along with several types of meat sauces. 

Another stop on the tour, The Fanwood Grille, features Schickhaus franks with natural casing prepared on the grille. Toppings include cheese, chili, sauerkraut, and the "Cowboy Tony" seasoned meat topping with mustard and onions. 

Apple's Deli in Springfield, another relatively new place, is owned by Matt Appelbaum, former owner of Amazing Hot Dog and former manager of Cioffi's Boardwalk, both of which were on past Hot Dog Nation tours.
