At 3 syns for a hot dog out of the brine, you could have up to 5 hot dogs before using up all of your daily syn allowance for the day, making them a great low syn snack or meal.
You should however consider the bread, sauces and over-add-ins with your hot dog which can add calories to your meal, making a hot dog well over 15 syns.
