any Plattsburgh Michigans/Red Hots in Vermont?

Hey all I'm going up to Vermont in a couple months, and will definitely stop by a couple of the Plattsburgh "Red Hot" spots...

I'm also wondering if they are available in Vermont? Wikipedia says this: 

"Finally, in Vermont, the Michigan dog is almost always split and cooked on a grill before the meat sauce onions and mustard are added. Often, but not always, the bun (or slice of bread) is also grilled."

Google only turns up a handful of mediocre sounding Vermont Hot Dog Joints.. any suggestions for Vermont Michigans or Vermont Hot Dogs in general would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Hawk,

      Here's my contribution to your quest, taken from a previous post.

    “Three Years Later”
     
    Three years later, I have found two places I never fail to get a hot dog from when I’m in the Green Mountain state.
     
      In South Burlington, Al’s French Frys [sic] is always a favorite stop. It has a retro look that really works. Perhaps that’s because it was retro before retro was cool. You see, Al’s has been pleasing palates since the late 1940s. It’s a nice clean place with lots of Roadfood charm, and the employees have a good, spirited attitude.
     
      While I consider the fresh cut French fries world class, the otherwise ordinary, McKenzie skinless, beef/pork, 10-to-a-lb. wiener acquits itself better than one would expect via rather fine preparation on a flat grill and the assurance that it will be delivered to your awaiting hand good and hot, ensconced in a New England bun. Here’s the site:
     
    %20%20
    %20%20%20%20%20%20[
     
     
    Not far away, in Williston, at Maple Tree Plaza near the Christmas Tree Shop, is TJ’s Dawgs. TJ’s, operating out of a nice looking, wood-sided wagon he built on a tow trailer, serves a ¼ lb. Vienna Beef hot dog, also always delivered good and hot.
     

      Numerous toppings are offered. Plus, those who wish their dog run through the proverbial garden will find available--- there on the counter at no extra charge--- all the condiments necessary to making that Chicago gustatory experience a reality. To the best of my knowledge, no other hot dog purveyor in Vermont serves this famed, high quality Chicago frankfurter.  Oh, and there are nice, umbrella-covered chairs next to the wagon where one may enjoy their dog.
     
      Here’s a link to a site that has a photo of TJ’s:

    P.S.--

       Also of some renown is the Texas Dog at the Old Shed Bar and Grill at 80 Shelburne Shopping Park, Shelburne, Vermont.

      It is a Mackenzie frank with a meat sauce on it, and from what I surmise, a local favorite.

    Nice! Texas dog sounds like it might be in the "Michigan" category
    It's hard to find menu listings online for a lot of the diners & such up there.. 

    Guess I'll just have to eat a lot of hot dogs!
    Thanks I'll report back in a few months with findings...

    Seems to me that what you're really talking about is a hotdog with the Greek-style meat sauce called chili in some parts, and known as Coneys in Michigan -- which is likely how it got its name.
