Thank you for the compliment on my setup, SCbuzz!
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
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.
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.
