I've had some dogs in the fridge for about two weeks now. They don't smell bad, but would you risk it? I feel like hot dogs are so processed that they hardly have an expiration date. Maybe I'm wrong.

In serious training mode defaultposition is always In doubt-Throw out.
Day before or of an important date --leave unate.
Much like sour SourCream and pebble skipping--- sometimes it hard to get a handel on knowing when to say when.

I'm serving up some hot dogs right now that were processed in 1995 that I got from my meat guy for 39 cents/pound. They look a little weird when I cook them but I haven't had one person tell me one of my dogs killed them yet.

Two weeks is nothing in the life of a hot dog. Eat 'em!

Precisely. The question suggests they start good.

If they don't smell bad and aren't covered in a non-hot dog-colored slime, then they're fine.

Well, I ate the hot dogs after boiling them in water. I did this a little longer than I normally would, just in case. They tasted fine and my stomach isn't bothering me.

I'm about to go to bed, so we'll see how I fare for the night. I don't expect any problems. I did drink a couple cups of coffee, though, and I hope that doesn't throw off my controlled hot dog experiment.

When they try to kill you in your sleep you know they have gone bad.

A package of generic hot dogs is about a dollar. If in doubt, go buy some more. Drink two less Red Dog beers that night and you'll be even.

Only two weeks? They're still good. You might as well have those two Red Dogs.
