Heinz ketchup and Grey Poupon work in a pinch.
But to really jazz up your backyard burgers and dogs, pick up some housemade condiments from Show Dogs, the gourmet sausage emporium on Market Street, just a stroll from the Holiday Inn Civic Center San Francisco .
Sold in pints and half pints (priced from $4.95 to $6.95), the zesty offerings include standards such as pickle relish, Dijon mustard, yellow mustard, Russian-style brown mustard, and ketchup, as well as sauerkraut and lemon cayenne aioli.
They make for great hostess gifts and souvenirs, too. Pick up a jar or two for a tangy taste of San Francisco.
