If I don't have any of my All-the-Way hot dog sauce handy (which would be in place of the Chow Chow below), it goes like this:
1) Regular store brand hot dog rolls - warmed
2) Oscar Meyer Angus bun length uncured beef franks, boiled (I know, I know, don't say it), then briefly put under the broiler to give them a little char/color and a snap when I bite into them
3) Chow Chow (sweet, not hot)
4) One stripe of Spicy brown mustard
5) A small handful of Chopped sweet onion spread across the top from end to end
Served with chips or home made potato salad, and any beverage of what I am in the mood for.

That is about it with maybe a small variation if I am out of any of the above ingredients.

I love chow chow relish!!! I seek out homemade or local made chow chow when I go to farmer's markets and such throughout the south!

    For me, it"s all about the dog

     
    You got that 100% correct in my opinion.
    I have been to too many places that completely bury their dog in condiments, so much that you do not know what kind of dog is in the bun. The dog should be the star of the show and the rest are only there to compliment it.
    When I go into a place I want to know what type of dog(s) they have, how it is cooked, and relatively few choices of quality condiments. When I see generic descriptions and a ton of extras, I seriously question if the owner is proud of what they serve, or are they just out to "slop the hogs" for profit.
    I have filed away somewhere a prime example of probably the worst menu I have ever seen from a hot  dog joint. I should scan it in and post just to show others what NOT to do. The company name or location is not even on the menu!

        About once a week lately, I've been getting foot long Hebrew Nationals from the restaurant around the corner from mine, with mustard and "Rochester Sauce". It's a spicy beef sauce, not sure exactly what they put in it (ok, he won't tell me), but there is definitely some tomato, cinnamon, and celery seed. Very, very good.

        Hebrew makes a foot long?

              It's definitely a Hebrew I've been getting. I thought at first it was just two regular ones as they put them on two regular buns, but I checked last time and it was definitely a full footlong they cut in half.

                    My wife found this on QVC, it's delicious and makes it easy to dress a bunch of dogs in no time. I know it's not the classic Chicago format, but it delivers the right taste.
                     
                    Chicago Style Hot Dog Relish
                    Serving Size: 8
                    Ingredients:
                    1/2 large onion, quartered
                    3 dill pickle spears, quartered
                    2 plum tomatoes quartered and seeded
                    8 sport peppers, stemmed (or 8 pepperoncinis, stemmed)
                    3/4 cup sweet pickle relish
                    3 tablespoons yellow mustard
                    1/2 teaspoon celery salt
                    Hot dogs, and hot dog buns, for serving
                    Directions:
                    Fit a food processor with a chopping blade and put the onion, pickles, tomatoes, and sport peppers in the bowl. Pulse the ingredients until they're finely chopped.

                    Transfer the mixture to a bowl and add the pickle relish, mustard, and celery salt. Stir to combine and serve on your favorite prepared hot dog. Makes about a pint.

                      I've always been curious to try chow chow, but have never seen it in NY until last week, Wegmans is now carrying Mrs. Renfro's chow chow (both hot and mild). I'll be trying it on a nice snappy Hoffman hot dog (local to the area), probably sooner rather than later.

                        Publix bakery or Pretzilla pretzel bun

                        Usinger's natural-casing wiener (Grilled is best, fried & boiled okay, too)

                        Plochman's stone-ground mustard

                        Sauerkraut with caraway seeds

                          Whenever kraut is an option on the dog, I get it.

                            Are you able to buy Usinger's locally or do they have to be imported?

                              We have relatives in Milwaukee (some who have worked at Usinger's), so we usually get a box of wieners, brats, braunschweiger and ring bologna when they come down or we go up. We're going there this summer for the state fair, so we'll re-stock then.
