        The Matlock takes on it's character of it's namesake, practical, resourceful, cheap.

        The Matlock ideal is a Chicago 7-ingredient style:

        0)The hot dog doesn't hardly appear to be an ingredient, but I believe ideal Chicago style uses a hot dog with fillers that make it blump up upon boiling. I'm using Hebrew Nationals' Kosher 1/4 lb All Beef Polish Sausage.

        1) I grilled, not boiled, as grilling tastes better. And therefore my leftovers on hand, have been grilled.

        2) I used plain jumbo hotdog buns with poppy seed sprinkled inside, as I have not yet found Poppy Seed Jumbo (or otherwise) Buns.

        3) I used French' Yellow Mustard.

        4) Green Sweet Relish

        5) Chopped yellow onions

        6) Chopped red tomato

        7) Picle: Kosher Dill

        8) Hot peppers: I did one with Jalapeno, one with sarrano.
        I prepared "toothpicks" of pepper by removing seeds and inner white membrane, then slicing long narrow toothpicks from the outer meat.
        I felt sutle heat after eating, no burning while eating.

        9) I used celery seed rather than celergy salt, since I am on a salt free diet.

        --------------
        Evaluation: I had taste tested from the end on one dog, hence there was bun & dressing at the bottom end of that dog. Was it obvious the dog had run out...and was missing? Not immediately. :-)
        If one is clever, one can get the dog to one side of the mouth, and eat the salad with the other half of the mouth, and be aware of both, the meat, and the dressing at the same time.

        Using this civil method of pepper prep, I can tackle my hot pepper supply. But this salad mix isn't taylored to my taste...but to a forlorn people, blown by wind, snow and freezing rain. There is much room for a California make over.

              It would have to be Cates' or Mount Olive... something made in North Carolina. Won't nothin' else do.
              Seriously, Ort. Carlton in Relatively Nearby Athens, Georgia.
              P. S. Cates puts out a dill relish that is TO DIE FOR. It's almost as dilly as Harold Craver's mama's dilliest dill slaw. Now, folks - that's WAY PLUMB dilly.
              P. P. S. I think the writing in of the hot dog vendor was Andy's idea. We have them here in Athens; one of ours is a refugee from Bulgaria who wishes for the types of wurst he used to eat at home. Hmmm. I'll have to press him for details one night.

                Steve,
                Hog gizzards?!? Hogs don't have gizzards!! Chickens and turkeys do! I know it's their mistake (the show's writers, who didn't know any better - or else thought it was funny, even if it's totally anatomically inaccurate) and not yours, though, so it's easy to forgive you.
                But HOW could you forget Granny Clampett's owl soup? I've wanted to try that ever since I heard of it on there. I can't help but wonder what sort of owl would be used... horned?... barn??... screech???... night????

                          Thank you for the welcome, i95.

                          A week's planning, and followup for a couple weeks to adjust to the experience I had with the crowd, market segment.

                          I'm surprised that my favorite way to dress the dogs myself is with minimal condiments, now that I have a foundation of a dog I like the taste of. I take slivers of jalapeno and sarrano peppers and grilled onions.

                            I do appreciate the warm welcome. I dared post a question about hot dog fixen, and I was surprised at the reaction of some deriders. I guess you have that type anywhere, even among hot doggers.

                            I like to boil my hot dogs in

                            I usually steam the buns over the fry pan while I am boiling the dogs !


                            Do your dogs swell up when you boil them? I prefer my Hebrew National Kosher All Beef 1/4 lb Polish sausages just slow grilled, nicely browned all round from cooking in their own juices.

                            I did warm some buns over the fry pan, but I found that in the bussel of serving 120, the buns were done uneven due to being too busy.
                            If a bun got too steamed it would lose it's strength to support those jumbo polishes. So I steamed the buns lightly in a large SS pot.

                            I like yellow mustard, onions and chili on my hot dog !

                            As for the peppers used on Matlock .... I'm not sure which ones they were. I watched the show,
                            but do not remember that.

                            Good luck !

                            Yes, plane yellow mustard is popular with my crew, also. I get requests for the chili, but it's just too much bother for me to have another hot entre. I have Beef hot dogs, and chicken sliced breasts. That is more than enough variety for me, one salt, one saltless.

                            Oh so you did see the show. I think that show depicks two hot dog lovers who develop a friendship from that common interest.
                            In my experience, that comes closest to the purpose of these hot dog forums is, that I have seen.

                            I was surprised that the peppers were not too hot for me, once I had removed the seeds.

                              Steamed in beer, rather than boiled, now that is a change of pace.
                              What does the steaming accomplish, other than getting steamy?

                              Thank you for compliments on the hot dog feast I have prepared for the crowd of 120 here.

                              It's interesting to see the vast range of reactions I get from the crowd. One demanded I put out a tip jar, and gave me a $1 tip. The next woman ranted and complained that $3 was just too much for a 1/4 lb all beef Hebrew National Kosher Polish sausage with all the fixens.
                              I have not found a lower price on the internet. I'd be interested in the price range for such a dog to be found on the internet.
                              I know I have to charge that much to break even, what with all the inventory shrinkage that does on during receipe development. :-)

                                I certainly don't advertise or recommend eating the hot dogs I serve.
                                I recommend not eating any salt or processed fats, or even many saturated fats.

                                So I don't recommend eating hot dogs, period.
                                Not at my road side food stop, or anywhere.
                                The hot dogs inflame my edema, and make my joints swell up as if I had arthritis. If I didn't have to develop cooking methods, and compare comdiment combinations, I wouldn't have any excuse to eat 'em.

                                      I do appreciate the warm welcome. I dared post a question about hot dog fixen, and I was surprised at the reaction of some deriders. I guess you have that type anywhere, even among hot doggers.

                                      water or beer and then drain the water and fry the dogs in the hot pan to put a singe on the outside !
                                      I usually steam the buns over the fry pan while I am boiling the dogs !


                                      Do your dogs swell up when you boil them? I prefer my Hebrew National Kosher All Beef 1/4 lb Polish sausages just slow grilled, nicely browned all round from cooking in their own juices.

                                      I did warm some buns over the fry pan, but I found that in the bussel of serving 120, the buns were done uneven due to being too busy.
                                      If a bun got too steamed it would lose it's strength to support those jumbo polishes. So I steamed the buns lightly in a large SS pot.

                                      Yes, plane yellow mustard is popular with my crew, also. I get requests for the chili, but it's just too much bother for me to have another hot entre. I have Beef hot dogs, and chicken sliced breasts. That is more than enough variety for me, one salt, one saltless.

                                      Oh so you did see the show. I think that show depicks two hot dog lovers who develop a friendship from that common interest.

                                          Ye Gods, how in the heck did I miss this absolute train wreck of a thread for the last month?? And what fun reading. For extraordinary perseverence in the face of overwhelming odds and the addition of Bacon to what is essentially a kosher hot dog thread, and in keeping with its' television series orientation, I dub thee Wild Walker, hotdog Ranger...

                                            Can't eat a hot dog unless it is charboiled on a grill. Boiled or steam hot dogs are like eating rubber.

                                            I love chopped onions, Weber's mustard, hot sauce and a pickle on my dog.
