Lee, I have my tastes. If it's food... I taste it... and keep tastin it... till I acquire a taste. I do have my favs though. :~)

The only thing on my "dont like" list was that green tamale stuff that comes outa a lobster. As I learned here at Roadfood... that stuff may now be dangerios to eat. So now my list is empty again. :~0

Captain, what is a Carolina dog? I'll try one!

Wabbit, I appreciate the kind words, and when I'm down in NC in the spring, I'll make a point of having an ATW NC dog. Will I find one at the Cook-Out chain? Their Carolina Q is a waste of time, but if they have dogs, I'll give 'em a try. If you check out the WV hot dog site, you'll see that fully-dressed NC dogs and WV dogs are virtually identical ( mustard, chili, slaw and onions. ) I've gotta try both. And, as I'm sure you've noticed, I LOVE Biscuitville! Sure wish we had them up here in Blago-land.... excuse me, FORMERLY Blago-land.


I stick to Shakes only at Cook Out, Skippy Dog on 4th st in Winston-Salem is fantastic! They make there own buns, the dogs are made to order on a flat top. At peak times the line is down the block. They do have indoor seating, or you can see all the great changes in down town with a awesome dog!

In May of 2004, "emsmom" responded to a thread I'd started about "Regional Favorites" and she introduced this California boy to the wonder that is cole slaw on a hot dog. Again, Thank you emsmom!


You are very welcome. We still like slaw dogs the best

I make mine with salad vinegar and a pinch of sugar if serving with fish, but with hot dogs- I use Dukes mayo

Having grown up in NC & Va, I was of legal age before I knew that every part of the country didn't put slaw on their dogs.

A few things to note - the creamy based slaw is the only one I've seen used on dogs, and that is throughout Va, eastern Tennessee, NC, & SC. I've never seen vinegar based slaw used, and can't remember seeing mustard based slaw used, though it might have been. Also, the ordering mantra is typically to request a 'slaw dog' or a 'Carolina dog' - both of which mean the same - a dog in a bun, then a stripe of yellow mustard, followed by one tablespoon of diced white onions, then a tablespoon of (fairly runny) chili, finally topped by two tablespoons of cole slaw. As someone mentioned, if you change the order of the condiments, it doesn't work as well. The onions fall off if they're on top. The mustard needs to be on the dog.

When it is prepped, what you get is the beef taste, with a hint of the mustard spice, then the cool crunchy sweetness of the onions, topped by the warmth of the chili, complemented by the cool milky sweetness of the slaw. Beef, spice, crunchy sweet, warmth, coolness. A smorgasbord in your mouth.

FTR, Snoopy's in Raleigh was always good, Dude's in Christiansburg still is, but my current favorite is Skeeter's in Wytheville, Va. They serve your dogs on a plain white napkin, as you sit on the stool at the countertop. They've been around forever, and have served something over 4 million hot dogs. Probably five million by this time.

Skeeter's gives you two slaw dogs & free refills on your soft drink (soda or pop for you yankees), all for $5, tax included. Not to mention, you can go in, eat & be out of there in ten minutes, tops. That's a real working man's lunch.

The Varsity in Atlanta has featured "Slaw Dogs" for many years only $2.22 for the Chili Slaw Dog (on the menu) and throw in some rings and a chili burger!

Spent part of my day on Saturday eating hot dogs/slaw dogs in West Virginia.  It seems the more north you go, the less likely you are to see slaw on a hot dog.

When I lived in West Virginia cole slaw on a hot dog was something I just could not ever get used to.

I agree with the geographical theory. I happen to like the slaw dog combo, but know of few places in the north east where one has the option. Crif Dogs in NYC is one of the only places in the NY area I know of that offers this combo.

I was actually speaking of just West Virginia, but that might be true on a larger scale, also.

A slaw dog is heaven if you have a good sauce/chili and fresh cole slaw, if I have doubts about the slaw I usually get mustard, sauce, onions and sometimes relish.

When my  youngest son was moving last week I told him I would make dinner for his family & moving helpers.  I asked him what he wanted me to fix- chili, beef stew, vegetable soup(all his favorites), he said hot dogs with chili & slaw.   I also, made baked beans & macroni salad.

I fed about 10 that day, all native Hoosiers except my husband & I, all but one had slaw on their hot dogs.   I have been feeding our kids & all their Hoosier friends hot dogs with chili & slaw for goign on 35 years & now have plenty of converts.  Our "weenie roasts"  are legendary.

On a historical slaw dog note, I asked my mother (88 on March 7th) when she remembered 1st having slaw on a hot dog.  She said she can't remember when a "weenie roast" did not include chili & slaw on a hot dog.

Its funny how you tend to stick with what you grew up eating. I don't care for creamy cole slaw on a hot dog. I grew up on hot dogs with sauerkraut. Both toppings start out with shredded cabbage. Go figure!

A lot of the folks who try and don't like slaw dogs are
probably using a slaw that doesn't compliment the dog.
NY deli slaw, for example, might not go well on a dog.

As noted above, a creamy, mayo slaw works better
for me than a vinegar style.

I have to agree.  Give me the kraut!  Even though many folks have seen, heard of, and eaten dogs with slaw here in Alabama, I never heard of that combo until adulthood.

Gosh, Russ, I really don't have recipes, but I will give it a try.
 
Hot Dog Chili
1 1/2 lb ground chuck
1 medium onion, finely diced.
1 can Castleberry's Hot Dog Chili
1/3 bottle Heinz chili sauce
 
Brown ground chuck & onions, breaking up meat chunks,drain fat.   Add Castleberry's American Originals Hot Dog Chili, chili sauce, 1/2 can( Castleberry's American Originals Hot Dog Chili of water.  Bring to boil, then simmer until proper hot dog chili consistancy.
While the chili is simmering, I keep stirring & breaking up the chunks of meat until the chili is smooth. 
 
Baked Beans
2 large cans of original Bush Baked Beans
2/3 bottle of Heinz chili sauce
1 large onion, chopped-I like to see the onions pieces in the beans.
2/3 C light brown sugar
1/2 lb diced bacon
1 t yellow mustard
Preheat oven to 350.
 
Open & drain beans(very important, you don't want soupy beans), place in a 9x13 pan.  Stir in bacon, onions, chili sauce,mustard & brown sugar.   Put pan in oven, after 20 minutes, remove pan & stir gently( the brown sugar has begun to melt & you need to distribute it thoughout the beans).  Bake an additional 50-60 minutes until the beans have absorbed most of the liquid. 
 
Coleslaw
 
1 small head of cabbage, the greener the better.
mayo
cider vinegar
sugar
salt, pepper
Finely chop the cabbage, I use my food processor.  I don't have exact measurements for the slaw dressing, but I'll approximate-3/4 C mayo, 1/4 C sugar, 1T vinegar, salt, pepper.  Mix the mayo & sugar & let sit until the sugar is dissolved in the mayo, add the rest  to the cabbage & refrigerate at least 1 hour.
 
Macaroni Salad.
1 lb cooked macaroni
1/2 t salt
mayo
sugar
cider vinegar
sweet pickle juice
yellow mustard
3-4 stalks celery, chopped
1 medium onion, finely diced
5-6 finely diced sweet gerkins
5 chopped hard boiled eggs
paprika
 
Drain & cool macaroni, make sure macaroni is completely drained. Add, celery, onion, pickles & salt .  Make dressing:  Again, I don't have exact measurements, but I'll make a guess- 3 C mayo, 1/2 c sugar, 3 T cider vinegar, 1T yellow mustard, 2 T pickle juice from pickle jar.  Mix mayo & sugar, let stand until sugar is dissolved, add rest, stir into macaroni, then fold in eggs, sprinkle with paprika.  Refrigerate at least 6 hours, the flavors need to meld.
 
Sorry for such a long entry, but I just don't have an exact recipe.  The recipes were passed down from my grandmother(born in 1896) to my mom & then to me.  Now I have passed them on to my children & grandchilden.

Growing up in NJ, I too only knew Kraut as a topping...but after a few summers in NC,I discovered the joys of a dog with slaw over chili and stuff....Now I'm a man of the world and can enjoy both......expand your pallet!!

leethebard-
A hot dog chain called Johnny's Lunch recently opened near me.  On their menu, they have a hot dog called Jersey slaw, which is an all beef hot dog with cole slaw and mustard.  Why they named a slaw dog after Jersey is a mystery to me.

Don't get that either, Buffetbuster. Never saw coleslaw on a dog in New Jersey, or in your neck of the woods,either.

Here is my slaw dog from Johnnie's Grill back in May.


Delicious!


I'd sure like to have a recipe for the slaw on that dog from Johnnies Grill. It's seems like back when Johnnies was in the little hole in the wall place the slaw was a brighter green but I'm not complaining. I'd take one of those any day.

Is there a frank in there somewhere? I like the previous description "witness protection program" hot dog...... "where the hot dog is buried."

"Toppings are to complement the frank, like a mixer for a drink. You want to taste the rum...not just the coke."

Although it looks like it may be good, me and a lot of people are more interested in the brand of dog, if it has a casing, and how it is prepared. I know you mentioned Boars Head in the other forum, but you didn't answer my question as to whether it's their all beef or beef/pork dog. The beef/pork is average, the all beef is excellent. They also make a very bland beef/pork/veal dog that is mediocre. This dog is served at Walter's in Mamaronek, N.Y.

that was a test dog, It was a Murray's dog. NOT a Boars Head dog. I boiled it and it shrunk.  I am testing a few different dogs. I like the way Nathans & Hebrew Nationals hold up, even if they were to be boiled. I plan on doing a simming test next.
