Chef Skip Murray of Dat Dog - Biography
New Orleans, LA
Chef Skip Murray began his career in hot dogs while living in London, of all places. He opened Real American Hot Dog Company UK, which imported sausages from Germany and dazzled the Brits with a taste of America.
Murray met his future partner George Constantine on the football field during high school in New Orleans. And while Murray would cross the pond over the next years, he returned to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, and the two former pigskin colleagues reconnected to open Dat Dog.
Dat Dog retains the ambiance of a globe-trotting hot dog joint while giving a nod to local flavor with Louisiana hot sausage, Louisiana smoked sausage, alligator sausage, and crawfish sausage.
