How to make Mark Murray’s Shark Tank featured Hamdog?

Hamdog is an invention of Mark Murray which featured in Shark Tank Australia. Hamdog is the combination of a hamburger and a hot dog, with a regular patty, in addition to a hot dog sausage going right through the middle of it. With this brilliant or some might say silly invention you don’t need to choose between a burger and a hotdog ever. You can have both in a Hamdog. Mark Murray’s pitch for the Shark Tank was 25% equity of his Hamdog business for just 1$.
