RE: Dip Dogs 2007/03/27 06:20:06 (permalink)



This thread forced me to break out my corn dog recipe that I have well hidden. I made a dry batch and brought it to work. There I added the wet ingredients and cut the foot long Hummels in half. I made corn dogs for the whole staff. They were so good that one waitress brought two out to a regular customer.

I want to say that Flasher40's response to their stand is a great thing. I am sure that there is no doubt that he is glad that this place rates so highly and fondly with folks here. What is nice is how he conveyed the pride in ownership of this place. It is so important to like what you are doing and I get that feeling here.
I suspect that the resistance to expanding and franchising has more to do with the inability to capture the attitude as opposed to quality issues. Anyone could probably make a Dip Dog, but will they do it with joy, instead of a business?

===I am starting to work on some ideas to do for our 50th anniversary for 50 years is a long time for a business to keep going so if any of you would like to give me some ideas that would be great.===

Hmmm. I think that I need to taste a few before I come up with suitable ideas. I'll give you my address if you want...

One thing I can't figure out is the picture of that kid in the cowboy costume. Is that a human or a doll standing next to him in the back of the ice cream cone truck?


ROFL! thanks for the image tip...


That looks like a real human to me, a girl with straight sunshine washing away all her human flesh characteristics. What a pose! And the "History" sub-page has a great story of the dog...!

We have shipped DIPDOGS as well. About 2 months ago film producers came by to do a documentary on the DIPDOG Stand and it is now airing in the Sundance film festival so I am anxious to see how that turns out as well. We have also been listed in a book as one of the best restaurants around and for the second time in a row in we have been voted best restaurant, best service, best hotdogs, best hamburgers, best icecream, best fries, so this is a nice accomplishment.. I am starting to work on some ideas to do for our 50th anniversary for 50 years is a long time for a business to keep going so if any of you would like to give me some ideas that would be great. We also have been featured in Southern LIving which was exciting as well... Heres wishing everyone a wonderful day....... The DIPDOG


Congratulations Flasher! But what makes The Dip Dog different than a corn dog

There's no corn-meal in the batter. It's crispy with no soggy internal goop like tempura. Just a very thin flour based (imo) batter that fries up crispy and clings well to the dog.

There is nothing bready about this product.

Thank you for that explanation, But I'd still like to hear it from the Flasher since it's his recipe, assuming he's willing to share it. Yo, Flasher, are you willing to share it?v If not, will you give us neophites a clue?

If there is no cornmeal in the batter and it's crispy... it must be a simple flour based batter with cornstarch in it. Similar to what is used at the New Mexico State Fair for Chile Relleno Dogs. That is a hot dog inside a chile pepper, dipped and fried to a crispy goodness.

I just visited the dip dog yesterday...loved it. My impression of the batter was a lot like funnel cake batter! Especially with the onion rings...it was so thick and fluffy. Great spoT!

Sorry I keep hitting the wrong button.
But we also have bumper stickers that says GOT DIP DOGS? and we are seeing if we can get in all 50 states we have gotten our bumper stickers back from AFRICA, and 2 are in IRAQ on Humvees, and we have quiet a few states. if you would like to have your state included then you can email me at flash105@comcast.net and ask me to send you a bumper sticker and give me your address and I will send it out to you. Remember we need a picture with the state name included with the bumper sticker.

Now on the recipe for the Dipdogs Sorry but you all are wrong on the recipe.
also it takes more steps than you think to make a dipdog so keep guessing but I can't tell the secret for then it wouldn't be the same and then other people would try to copy it and I know it wouldn't be the same product that we serve.
We do have a website that is semi done it is www.dipdogs.net and also we are manufacturing our BBQ sauce and the web site for that
is www.backyardbatch.com So now you have some interesting news and I look forward hearing from all of you and wouldnt it be nice since it is our 50th anniversary to be able to get our bumper stickers to all 50 states and back..

Come on Everyone help get those states in for us.
Thanks so much for all the kind response, it means a lot to know people enjoy our product as well as our all around service. I will try to check back more often but if you want to email us feel free to do so.
Remember the batter is a secret so I can't tell but you can keep guessing..

Flasher,
Do you divulge which size and brand dog you use within your secret batter?

We found the Halls to be charming people, in every way. They are so proud of their 50-year-old business, and justifiably so. My wife and I had a couple of Dip Dogs each, which we really enjoyed. Our interview resulted in a piece on "Inside Appalachia," produced by West Virginia Public Broadcasting, and will likely lead to a good bit more coverage as well. Long live the Dip Dog!

Hello All,
Flasher40, I wish I had known you existed the
years I travelled back and forth from Virginia to Alabama.
You sound like a day trip for me to visit a Roadfood treasure.
Take Care,

Come by and see us any time. Only time we are closed is the week of July 4th. We close a week so we can rest and get ready for the rest of the summer and when everyone comes back they are refreshed and ready to go again. I wish all of you a WONDERFUL AND SAFE JLUY 4TH. PAM

Fixed dip dogs Sunday night at home and they were great, almost forgot how good they really are. I grew up in Morristown, Tennessee and enjoyed dip dogs at some of the drive-ins in the 60's and 70's. They are much lighter and tastier than corn dogs. I've got the dip dog batter down pat, a little trial and error is all that it took.

flasher40,

Yep, what I fixed Sunday night were 'shore nuff dip dogs. Nope, they didn't come from "The Dip Dog" and was not your recipe, but as I said in my previous post, I've been enjoying dip dogs since the '60s and I know how to fix 'em.

Greymo, when the smoke clears, I'll be happy to give you the recipe.

Buckshot... why don't you just post your version of the dip dog recipe, if you don't mind sharing. Why must you wait for smoke to clear? It's YOUR recipe!!!

My first guess was that it had a little cornstarch in it. If that's not the case I'd say seltzer water mixed with flour. Seltzer water makes a light crispy batter.

I fix dip dogs using whatever my wife has on hand - usually it's a pancake batter (an inexpensive pack costs about fifty cents), but onion ring batter works also. Roll the weiners in flour (makes the batter adhere), use tongs to dip the weiners in the batter, let the excess batter run off the end of the weiner and place in the "Fry Daddy". I don't use sticks, 'cause the weiner with a stick won't fit in the "Fry Daddy".

Experiment with other flour based batters (might want to consider beer as an ingredient) untill you find one that suits your taste.

Try this and enjoy your dip dogs!

Think that I'll fix dip dogs again this weekend, not to be confused with a DIPDOG which everyone knows are far superior! Guess that I'll have to settle for my "not so famous" dip dogs.
