From what is being grilled to what is being used to wash down your lunch or dinner here are 5 things that you will find at every BBQ in Western New York.

1. Sahlen's Hot Dogs - There is no other brand Western New Yorkers will use on the grill. People in Rochester sweat by Zweigles but here in the 716 it is only Sahlen's. Crispy on the outside and nice and juicy on the inside.
