a hot dog tour of the US
so i decided i would recreate a sampling of some hotdogs from around the US. here's what i came up with.

i decided on a pinks chili cheese dog from LA., a texas fair cornie, a classic chicago dog, and a new york pushcart dog with onion sauce. i also added my own concoction, an oakridge habenero death dust coated dog with mayo and sweet onion relish.

here's some pics and commentary:

i mades ome simple hotdog chili. bacon and the grease to make a simple roux, some ground beef, beef broth, chili sauce, chili, onion, garlic powder, salt and pepper. a bit of vinegar and cayenne to boot.

i also made some ny onion sauce. butter and sliced onions cooked down until brown and soft and then a bit of ketchup and cinnamon added along with some water. all stirred and simmered for about 20 minutes.

i also made a corn dog batter with corn meal, flour, egg, and milk with a bit of baking powder. a dash of sugar and cayenne added.

after that i assembled all my ingredients and equipment. i used two nathans natural casing dogs and 6 hebrew national. my two goto brands. sabretti is pretty darn good too.

i slow roasted the dogs in my smoky joe until they started to sweat. lordy i love hot dogs....

i took some of grilled dogs then deep fried my texas cornies...there's only one cause my little girl ate the other two already!!!! :becky: with that, the cook was a success!

i then began assembly. from left to right.
pinks chili dog, a chicago dog with sport peppers, pickle, tomatoe, relish, mustard, and celery salt, a new york dog with spicy mustard and onions, my own HDD dog, and in front a classic texas cornie with mustard.

thanks for looking.

Those look great!

I'd hit those!

You really should get the neon green relish for the Chicago dog. Besides the color, it's a little sweeter then regular sweet relish.

thanks guys,i appreciate every word!

moose, i been to LA many times, but never got to eat at pinks...the line was always too darn long. the chili recipe seems to be quite a secret(unless you find where they buy it from, but i didn't have time get it shipped;)), so i used a tommy's burger chili clone. it was good with the dog. missing the brinyness of hearts and liver though....

overall it was a successfull day, my daughter had her first corn dog(actually TWO!)made by the one and only DAD.

and i had my first chicago dog, which i was susipicious of, but as it turns out was KILLER.
