Laugth all you want but I never had a chilli dog (yuruppean you now), sounds tasty but... come on Jim, they cant be that special? (its just a dog for Petes sake!). Or can they? A German Bratwurst with some tasty mustard and -yes- Sauerkrut, on the other hand... Mmm jummy! :lol: I love a good meaty chorizo now and then too though...


Over here, there's a small fastfood stall called Bun on the Run which sells, among others, chorizo burger. I found it waaaaaaaaaaay too salty. I guess if there was a side order of french fries and dip, plus a bottle of Coke, the saltiness of the chorizo burger wouldn't be that bad. Other than the saltiness, it is quite good.

Sacrilege! Get a rope.

I find hotdogs bland without a good layer of chili on it.

Sonic is the "baseline" for a good chilidog.

Columbus has something called the "Scramble dog" where they dispense with the pretext of the hotdog being a hand held food and they smother the dog in chilli, misc. toppings (including oyster crackers) and then chop it up and serve it with a fork.

its... awesome.

Though mustard, ketchup, diced pickles and onions will be a suitable alternative. :)

No cheese please.

Had a chili cheese coney from Sonic last night, man was it good! Chili dogs just hit the spot on occasion.

2 lbs ground beef

4 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/8 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups catsup
2/3 cup waterMix uncooked ground beef and water. Add the remaining ingredients.Cover and simmer for 1 hour in a heavy saucepan. Remove from heat and add 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar.

Give me a basic "Michigan Coney Island" hotdog any day. A steamed bun, a grilled Koegel Vienna hotdog and enough chili, onions and mustard to make it necessary to use a knife and fork. It's nature's perfect food, in my humble opinion.

Few foods just call to me as does a good Chili dog, or Paht Thai.

I almost forgot. The hotdog has to be a natural casing hotdog, so that it snaps when you bite into it. Natural casing hotdogs are sometimes hard to find in many stores, but they are worth it.

At Steak 'n' Shake they are now serving Fritos Chili Cheese Burgers*. Don't even think of picking it up and eating it with your hand. Super sloppy, super good.

*The burger is topped not only with chili and cheese, but a layer of Fritos. I typically am not a fan of Fritos, but in this, they're perfect.

There is a joint around here called "Joe Rodgers Chili" also known as "The Den". They serve a mean ass chili dog to go along with their awesome chili.

Never, ever have I liked hot dogs. Even as a kid. They're just nasty. Especially when they have been boiled. I've seen Indiana pond scum on an August day look better than hot dog water.

We're 25 miles from the nearest Wal-Mart. That doesn't stop us. :P Though the people at the one we go to aren't *that* rude, but the folks 'round here aren't that rude. We're not like people in New Orleans. ;)


*harumph harumph* ;)

Does anybody remember the Hebrew National commercials on the radio? They usually played around Rush Limbaugh. It featured describing what is Kosher and what isn't, such as "being an intern at the White House, kosher. Messing around with your internes *BZZZ* NOT KOSHER!"
