Steve's and Ed's Hot Dog Sauce

Has anyone else tried this sauce? I've seen it at my local grocery stores for years but never tried it. I recently bought a can and decided to try it today as I was craving a chilli dog for breakfast.(this often happens to me because I read this sight before breakfast) I fried up a Thumans natural casing frankfurter and topped it with mustard, relish, shredded cheddar cheese and this sauce. I liked it. It had a pleasant mild flavor. It would be easy to spice it up to your liking. Anyone else try it?

    I've tried it and thought it was OK, not great. It certainly is cheap enough, less than a dollar if I recall.

    I do like the 50's era graphics, so I give it an extra point or two for that.

    Anybody know who Steve and Ed are (were?). Wonder if they are just marketing names or if somewhere back when there really was a Steve and Ed who came up with this sauce, perhaps for a long-forgotten hot dog stand.
     
    I did a search but couldn't find anything historical on the web.

    So I know that label is a little blurry but it looks like it is made out of beans and then they just add beef fat for flavor.  What was the consistency?  Did it seem like a meat chili sauce?

    I bet it's really Castleberry's, just relabeled.  Looks very similar, if not exact, to their ingredient list.  And considering Paprika is the least used ingredient, it sure could use a dash or two to bring it up to par...

    I personally hate the can stuff. Never found one I liked.Tried a lot of them,but they are all similar in taste and blandness.

    I know! No pictures, I was hungry and had eaten most of it before I thought to post about the sauce. My husband came home from work(he works nights) and had one too.

    Yes, it does actually have the consistancy of a meat chili. Weirdorama, right?

    Was at the store earlier, Castleberrys ingredient list is a carbon copy. Same as the Great Value stuff you find at Wally World...
    I remember looking at the list when they did their recall a couple years ago, I was amazed at the number of names they re branded under.. Guess they're still doing it today..

    For a canned chili, I think it's solidly OK---not great, as Ken notes. However, it could easily serve as a basis for your own creative additions, such as Frank's Louisiana Hot Sauce in my case. And perhaps a sprinkling of meat. 

      I'm not about to make my own chili sauce, and often buy Hormel. While I find Hormel has a good consistency, I think its taste is a bit too distinctive, familiar, institutional, processsed.

       My favorite three chilis available at hot dog restaurants in N.J. are, those served at Father & Son Luncheonette, Linden; Hot Rod's Hot Dogs, Glen Gardner, N.J.; and Hiram's in Ft. Lee, N.J.  Note that all three chilis are on the hot side.
