This coming from someone who thinks the proper sides for four hot dogs are two lobster rolls, a pint order of fried clams, a similar size order of french fries, a half dozen clams on the half shell (always at least seven, sometimes there'd be eight), and one drink. I think most folks would refer to this as "stuffing you face". pb

I would never argue about a statement that most slobs would use such a reference. Most folks, however, would never consider such terminology.

Slobs, huh? This coming from someone who thinks the proper sides for four hot dogs are two lobster rolls, a pint order of fried clams, a similar size order of french fries, a half dozen clams on the half shell (always at least seven, sometimes there'd be eight), and one drink.

You've "evolved" from a gluttonous (but genteel) growing boy into a pedantic (and tiresome) curmudgeon of an old man. You are truly a piece of work. pb

Well, I guess everyone I knew must have been gluttonous because everyone I knew, from kids to grandparents, ate just about the same thing on every visit to Jimmys of Savin Rock. As to curmudgeonly pedant, tiresome or not, I would never refer to you as porkbutt despite the obvious fact that it speaks to where your alleged brains reside.

There is one thing that puzzles me. What is it that causes you to have a life so empty that you spend so much of your time chasing me around Roadfood just to spew your ineffective and uncreative venom. I know that you can't handle the things I post here, but aren't you embarrassed knowing that people are actually reading the things you write?

I'm in the totally opposite camp from porkbeak. I don't understand how a person can eat like a bird and survive. Although my intake has declined as the waist line increased there was a time when lunch was 3 quarter pounders, large fries, a shake and a coke, a large pizza with the works would disappear along with a 2liter of soda, an all you can eat buffet was 3hrs of heaven.. But that was then, now a sackfull of krystals may have a few left after Im finished, a couple of dogs and burgers at a cookout and Im layin back relaxin. It's not gluttony when your well over 6' and 200+.....

Well, when I was a kid I was growing, and when I stopped growing I still had to fuel a 5"10, 195-pound body that was used for football and hockey. These days I don't eat anywhere near as much. Not that I wouldn't like to. Whereas in the past I'd eat a whole sackfull of White Castles, nowadays I get filled up on just six of them. And, where I used to eat a three-pound porterhouse (just as my grandson does now), these days a 16-ounce strip is my limit. Ah, but I remember the breakfasts when I was playing ball, and especially at the training table in college. Half a dozen eggs, half a pound of bacon, a bunch of sausage, potatoes, pancakes, oatmeal, toast and/or biscuits, along with juice, coffee and milk. Those days are gone forever, and so is my 32-inch waistline. And it's only partly because I couldn't afford it today.

You might consider serving Onion Straws.
Onion Straws are like very thin stringy crisp onion ring-strips and are fine for packing with a dog into it's box ... or as a separate side.

Take onions, slice them fairly thin on a (deli) slicer and then manually separate each ring - retain only rings that are approx 2" across or larger for straws ... and then, pull each ring apart as well, so it becomes a strip (manually with your fingers ... not with a knife)
Put the onions in a ventilated tub (lexan etc) and let sit in the walk-in for 2 full days to weep.
On the third day they are ready to use.
Make a well combined egg wash with eggs and milk.

When you have some to sell - or are backing up some to sell very soon ...
Put a handfull (etc) of the onions in the eggwash, then allow to drain for a minute (a chinois works good for letting them drain) then, dump them into a fry basket that is in a tub of (regular) flour; cover with flour and shake basket to sift the flour thru the onions - coating completely. Transfer them from the flour basket to a fry basket that is being used in the fryer ...
Immediately lower into the deep fryer and keep some cooks tongs at hand to turn the straws in the basket as they cook and to keep them separated. They cook in about 3 minutes so you have to watch them closely. Drain briefly, transfer to a hotel pan under the heat lamps and dash with a little salt.

Alternately you can fry the straws in a smaller fry basket - not separating them, and using a second basket as a weight on top, to produce an onion 'brick'.

These would make an awesome addition to dogs.

French fries were my first idea but onion rings are also a good choice. Tony Packo's, which is a N.W. ohio favorite offers both macaroni and cheese and a german potato salad as sides. They both go surprisingly well with a chili dog. If you want to offer potato salad or cole slaw, try to make with a really good recipe. I often find most cole slaws and potato salads to be disappointing.

Good profit margin on em too.

I can't say that I hate fries but I can say that I hate the ubiquity of fries and that they are served with just about everything these days. I'm tired of 'em myself and seldom order them.

To me the only appropriate sides for a dog are:

1. Another dog
2. Chili Pie
3. a bag of Fritos

I really enjoy the bright green relish that seems to be available only in the Chicago/Milwaukee area.

For some reason, the taste is far better than any relish I have bought. It is not available in the East Tennessee area.

====Originally I was against french fries, I worked in kitchens enough to know about the excess heat, burns, slippery floors, greased up exhausts and equipment and the hastle of cleaning the friolators. After much deliberation I feel I would lose alot of business by not offering fries.====


It seems that some sort of deep fried offerings are essential. The two items being fries and for me, onion rings. I love those rings... How about Tater Tots?? Home fries as an alternative to potato salad? Ketchup is a great topping for those.
One item that hasn't been suggested for this topic, but many times elsewhere is a good chili...

I am currently working at a popular little place with three small fryers along with a charcoal grill. One fryer is fairly constant with fries cooking away and the other two are used for other menu items. But frankly, these fryers are quite small and for me very easy to clean as they are lifted out and strained through a fiber filter. But yes, one should be careful about splashing.

Get solid mats that cover the whole floor and can be hosed off outside. Do not worry about grease on the walls or even the vents as those dogs will create enough of a mess on their own and the most important thing is to maintain a clean appearance. Create and follow a cleaning schedule and the mess won't get ahead of you.

Maybe so, but there are places that offer those as the draw. If I've got an appetite for that, I'll go to them and get that without a hot dog. If I don't have to get gussied up to have a snack.

Here are two side dishes for a "dog dinner" that we often serve:

1) Hot sweetened red cabbage with caraway and apples. You can usually find this delicacy in the ethnic food aisle of your store. Just heat it up from the jar.

2) Pierogis. These are like the Jewish kreplach, onion-and-sometimes mushroom filled dumplings. These come frozen, but the trick is not to heat them in the oven or microwave, but to steam them over boiling water on the stove until they get soft and heated through.

3) The dogs? ALWAYS Boar's Head beef dogs w/natural casings, grilled on a butter-smeared griddle surface.

4) The muustard? Hebrew National Deli Mustard.

5) The relish? B&G Emerald Green.
