I suppose that if I lived in Chicago, I would go to one of the stands that offers a grilled rather than boiled dog, and one that throws on less extras such as Gene and Judes rather than Byron's.


I find that when I slow simmer Hebrew National's Beef Polish Sausage,
Eating it naked is very good. Next, a minimal bun is great, the taste is strong enough to come through. But start adding a big roll, or strongly flavored "salad", and the distinctiveness of the dog fades very rapidly. It would seem many "dressings" are designed to hide their occupant. This must reach it's zenith with the addition of Sport or sarrano peppers to the salad. How can anyone taste much of anything in the presence of all that fire.

I greatly appreciate your most informative posts.

Sincerely,

    I must amend my initial expression. By removing the seeds and membrane, even hot peppers can be tamed, leaving an enjoyable crunchy slow heat. My latest grilled HN Kosher Polish: grilled onion, with strips of jalapeno and sarrano pepper skin. The spicy mild flavor compliments the grilled Polish, covered by a mild wrap of a plan hot dog bun.

      I wrap my hot dog buns in foil and warm in the oven for about 10 minutes on a low temperature. I like to broil my weiners. On my bun, in this order only: Mustard, weiner, turn over so mustard is on both sides, raw onion and coleslaw or sometimes chili
