Sorry all for the delay... But here ya go...
Well, I've had allergies for the last week (again), probably ragweed or some other weed floating around outside, so my taste buds may be a bit off. But either way, here it goes... I'll give this sauce an 8 out of 10 for taste. I did NO doctoring to it, just wanted to sample it as it came out of the box. First bite, it seemed tasteless (my taste buds out of wack), Second bite I could taste the flavor, which was not bad IMHO! Though I felt it could use a pinch more chili powder or paprika and a pinch of cumin at the time. But that be my tastes. After I finished the first dog, I could feel some heat forming slowly in my mouth.. Nothing that really bites ya, but you feel it grow on ya. I liked that! After finishing off the 2nd dog, you know they added some sort of pepper to the mix (again, nothing bad, but had the heat that kept lingering). As for the sauce, it came in a vacuum sealed pouch. Just heat and serve. They claim it's good for topping 8 hot dogs, I say more like 5 or 6 only (I like my dogs coated, but I went thin in my pics, and that would probably cover 6 dogs from what you see below). Also, what I liked about the sauce was it was fine in texture and not dry... Major plus in my book.
Everything below was pure Michigan made or grown, less the Plochmans Mustard I coated the dogs with.
Here's the sauce packet outside the box..
Koegles as they come from the store.. Market price varies on every package, as they sell by weight, not a set price.. Normally I average an 8/1 dog, but these where 10/1 in this package.
When you open up your Koegles package, the hot dogs are all strung together.
Here's the chili sauce on the dogs.
Close up view.
Final product, Koegles topped with Gracies, some onions and Plochmans.
So would I buy this sauce again? Yup! Just wish it had the lard and beef hearts like a true Eastern Michigan Chili Sauce, but this way I just drive around the corner to get my fix.
