what are you looking for in one you like?

Hot?
Sweet?
Tomato taste?
Beef taste?
Regional flavor like Tex-Mex/Southwest?

What's most important to you?

I like mine to taste like real chili with a slight bite. When I say real chili I guess I'm talking about Tex-Mex.

yeah that's kinda what I meant....I see hot dog chili and "chili" as two different
things. Love both, but I like more southwestern/cumin/Mexi flavor to a bowl of
chili, but for hot dog chili, I like a beefy, slightly hot flavor.
Just wanted to see what everyone else thought.

I want real chili flavor, savory rather than sweet, with no beans or tomatoes. Heat is optional. (I sure don't ask for much, do I?)

There are numerous Threads on here on this subject. Do a search to get more info.
Here's what GOOD chili sauce should taste like:
Original Greek Coney Sauce
1 pound Ground beef
3/4 cup lard
1 medium Onion(s), diced
1/3 cup Chili powder
2 teaspoons Paprika
1 teaspoon Black pepper, coarsely ground
1 teaspoon Garlic powder
1 teaspoon Cumin powder
1 teaspoon Allspice
1 teaspoon Basil, dried
1 teaspoon Salt
1 TBSP Celery Seed
1/2 teaspoon Oregano, dried

PREPARATION:
To get the right consistency, break up the meat in a bowl & cover the meat with water & Ice and soak in the fridge for about 30 minutes. Drain water & remove Ice & then take a fork and break up any remaining chunks.
Line a colander with 1 layer of Cheese Cloth and drain the meat. You can make a packet with the Cheese cloth and squeeze to remove excess water. The meat in the cheese cloth makes it easy to transport to the pan. Use a large sauté pan with a lid or a chicken fryer with a lid, Brown beef, onion and shortening. At this point, Lay sheets of paper towel on the mixture to absorb any excess lard if you don't like your sauce greasy. Discard the towel (Duh!) Add remaining ingredients and stir.
Cover & Simmer for 1 ½ hours. Stirring occasionally. Remove lid and cook for another 15 to 30 minutes. You may have to add some water if it's too thick for your taste. Put mixture in a bowl & refrigerate. This allows the excess lard to firm up and can be scraped off if you desire. Package in sealed containers or Zip Freezer bags
This freezes well.

Ahhh... Chili Sauce! God's gift to bringing a dog back to life.
I like mine with somewhat of a beefy, tomato sauce or juice based thin sauce with some kick. But it has to have the true chili taste in there.. None of that stuff that looks like sloppy joe mix on my dogs..

when i taste hot dog chili I am NOT looking for chili i would eat in a bowl with rice/noodles/chips/etc. So that said, i like a bit of a kick with a bit of smokiness and some sweetness in there. (not sure if i explained it just right, but that is the basics.)oh and tomato in there, but NOT necessarily a major taste.

Shelly, I know exactly what you mean...my research is showing most important
is a beef flavor, with contributing heat, sweet and tomato, in that order.
This is interesting.

Try this thread on Hot Dog Chili/Coney Sauce http://www.roadfood.com/forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=5824

This is my favorite recipe:


In regards to you request I am going to give the recipe for authentic Detroit Coney Sauce. I will also give the proper way to serve it.
First the proper Dog.
Never use a budget dog.
Whenever possible use in this order Koegle, Dearborn, Sabrett,Kowalski,or Boars Head. All with Natural casing!!!!
Dogs must be grilled on a griddle or a cast iron skillet on medium low with a small ammount of butter and vegetable oil. Constant turning of dogs is a must and they must never split open. You will be looking for a consistent light brown color with a darker line of brown on 2 sides.If dogs are straight they can be rolled back and forth regularly to insure even cooking with a large hamburger flipper. If curved use kitchen tongs and adjust next to the other dogs. NEVER BOIL A HOTDOG! The only onion to use is a large very white one. It must be chopped very fine to the point that if it was any smaller it would be a liquid. This is imperative as an onion has a different taste when chopped larger. Onion particles will be about 1/8 inch square.

In a very large preheated pot with 1 cup of lard simmer 5 lbs of ground round and 1/2 lb cow heart ground fine on medium heat until it seperates and turns just brown. This mixture must be stirred regularly and mashed during process to create a kind of rough paste.
In a cast iron skillet put 6 tablespoons of butter and melt it then add 6 tablespoons of flour and make a light brown roux and set aside. Cut 3 tomatoes in half and roast in a 450 degree oven with a little vegatable oil on top until completely cooked and starting to turn into mush with a slight browning taking place. Set these aside.Add 32 ounces of chicken stock to meat simmer for 20 minutes at a slight boil then add roux, cooked tomatoes, 3 tablespoons chili powder,4 table spoons paprika,1/3 cup plochmans yellow mustard,2 tablespoons tumeric, 2 tablespoons cumin powder, 1 tablespoon garlic powder not salt,and 1 tablespoon onion powder. Simmer this down to the proper consistancy.
Steaming buns is the best way in a home enviorment a chinese steamer basket works well or you can wrap them in paper towells and microwave 3 at a time on high for about 20 seconds. Open bun place dog spread slightly thinned yellow mustard over dog. Cover with Coney sauce then top with onions. Additional mustard may be added however cheese or KETCHUP is never allowed lets leave that to the people in ohio ok.

...Russ

Thanks Russ but I'll pass on recipes calling for cow hearts.
I used to eat fried chicken livers growing up, now I just can't
find the taste for em.
I'm not really looking for a recipe, but what people like in a chili
sauce...I'm working on my own recipe for a Red Cross fundraiser.

Why re-invent the wheel unless you just want to call it your own "Original" Recipe. There's plenty of excellent recipes on the threads in here. Just use the search function.

You could omit the cow heart. However Cow Heart has a very specific taste. Wouldnt be suprized if it is in alot of good quality hot dogs. That is an excellent recipe that took years to develop. Give it a try.... Russ

Will you share your final recipe?
Always interrested in a new Hot Dog Chili or Sauce.
I would say I tend to stay away from a real sweet sauce. Good mustard undertone and some heat like dried smoked chipolte peppers or cayenne. Garlic is good also...Russ

sure Russ, even the in progress recipe....I live in South Carolina, in a retirement area
and one that supports a tourism industry, so there's lot's of transients. I'm trying to
find the profile for a hot dog chili that will satisfy the majority of people.
It's impossible to please everyone, but being in a melting pot, I want to get lots
of opinions, thus the post here and elsewhere.

It's fun, and I've got one recipe almost ready to be taste-tested..I'll be happy to post it here,
but I'm trying to find a balance between a chili that works alone on a dog, and also one that
works with slaw on a dog...which is common here in the Carolinas.

Also, if anyone else would like to chime in on their flavor/texture profile preferences,
I'd love to know what state you live in.

Does anyone remember Cupid's Hot Dogs in So. California? There used to be many now only one is left in Chatsworth. I'm trying to find the chili they use - simply the best hot dog chili ever. Can anyone help me?

Ho Ho's Texas Hot - Wiener Sauce
8 cups water Less if you like it thicker
12 to 16 oz finely ground hotdogs (I prefer Hebrew National skinless all beef)
1/2 cup cornstarch (dissolved in a little cold water)
1 tbls paprika
1 tbls chili powder
1/4 cup white vinegar
1 tsp sea or kosher salt
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp white pepper
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
a few grinds of fresh black pepper

Bring everything to a boil, except the cornstarch.
Let simmer for 30 minutes, then slowly add the cornstarch mixture, stirring constantly. Bring back to a boil, and keep stirring.
Taste along the way, adjusting the salt or pepper as you like it.
Serve on your favorite hotdog, with brown mustard, diced onion, in a steamed hotdog bun. This sauce will be thin, it is supposed to be, it is not a "chili dog" recipe. The sauce will thicken as it cools. It freezes well.
Note; Each time you reheat the sauce, it will get thicker

Wolf Brand! The only way to make a chili dog here in Texas! Just give it a try.

This hot dog chili sauce from an Aiken, SC pool hall is my go-to sauce for hot dogs - no more bought chili for me. You could use this as a base and season it to your taste for your "original" sauce.

Aiken, SC Pool Hall Hot Dog Chili Sauce

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 3/4 cup hot water
  • 1 1/2 cups minced onions
  • 4 tablespoons ballpark mustard
  • 3 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • salt
  • Break up and lightly brown the ground beef in a 4-quart saucepan.
  • Add onions and cook for 5 more minutes.
  • Add hot water to make a thick mix and stir together.
  • Add mustard, sugar, vinegar, chili powder, and ketchup.
  • Cook slowly for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
  • Salt to taste.
  • note:  I cook everything together in the water to make a much finer texture.

thanks....I fear Wolf Brand will be too Texas-ey, and I already
make the Aiken Pool hall recipe, doctored up a little...however
my recipe and experiment results are on my old computer that
crashed, and the guy "fixing" it has had for almost a year now..
I fear I lost a ton of pics and recipes there.

oh well, back to the drawing board.

Meanwhile, it helps the most to tell me what you like in your
chili for hot dogs.. all opinions are appreciated.

what are you looking for in one you like?

Hot?
Sweet?
Tomato taste?
Beef taste?
Regional flavor like Tex-Mex/Southwest?

What's most important to you?



I'm looking for one that compliments my dogs...but most of all one that sells dogs.


I'm just getting into the business.  How often do you make chili?  Every night?  Will it keep for a day or two?  Can you freeze it?  Should you?  How much do you make at a time?

Your quantity will be determined by your volume. I would suggest you make a pretty god quantity to start and then pack it in Quart or Gallon Ziploc bags and freeze some. Try to get as much air out of the bag as you can. You're just going to need to monitor your usage to find a quantity that works for you. It will keep for 5-6 days if properly refrigerated. Everyone's usage is different. there is no magic formula.

One thing I worry about is making the chili too soupy.  I don't want it to make the bun soggy.

During the depression, the only people who actually still did good business were....

1)  People who sold old cars

2)  People who fixed old cars

3)  People who sold food from carts (apples, hot dogs, etc.)


This is when the Chicago dog became popular.  It has so much stuff on it, it was like a whole meal for a dime.


I plan on opening my cart during this recession and I'm hoping it will work out.  People gotta eat and I see 2 dogs, chips, and a coke for $5 as a damn good deal.

you might do fine in LA...in South Carolina, that ain't a damn good deal.  You can do better at lots of places here.  Of course, you can
buy bbq for 7 or 8 bucks a pound here, while a buddy of mine near
DC gets 15 bucks a pound for his.  But I'm not talking about a cart,
I'm looking for a small joint.  I get what you're saying, and I'm hoping to jump in at just the right time.

Ever had the chili that comes in a roll...like breakfast sausage...and usually in the same grocery display case?  In my experience, that is the best chili...or chili like that...for hot dogs.  Usually no beans, finely ground meat, not soupy unless you make it so, so the bun doesn't got soggy as someone was correctly concerned about, good chili flavor without overpowering the dog.  Can't think of a specific brand.  Try one of those like that though.

Cincinnati Chili - serves 6-8  (from an 'America's Test Kitchen' recipe)

1 tbls vegetable oil
2 medium onions
1 medium garlic clove, minced or pressed through a garlic press (about 1 tsp)
2 tbls tomato paste
2 tbls chili powder
1 tbls dried oregano
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
Table salt
3/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/4 tsp ground allspice
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
2 cups canned tomato sauce (do not use jarred spaghetti sauce)
2 tbls cider vinegar
2 tsp dark brown sugar
1 1/2 lbs. 85 percent lean ground beef

1.) Heat oil in Dutch oven over medium-high heat until shimmering. Cook onions until soft and browned around the edges, about 8 minutes. Add garlic, tomato paste, chili powder, oregano cinnamon, 1 teaspoon salt, pepper, and allspice and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in broth, tomato sauce, vinegar, and sugar.

2.) Add beef and stir to break up meat (to break it up finely, on the TV program they use a potato masher). Bring to boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until chili is deep brown and slightly thickened, 15 to 20 minutes. Season with salt. (Chili can be refrigerated in airtight container for up to 3 days or frozen for up to 2 months.)


Though this recipe is a take on "Cincinnati Chili", it could be considered a generic for New Jersey's "Texas Weiner" chili. Or even more appropriately: a generic for a basic Greek immigrant-style chili sauce.

What's that got to do with the topic??

If it costs me $8.50 for a stinking fajita pita, fries and a coke, I can EASILY get $5 for 2 dogs, chips, and a coke.  That's better food, and more of it, for a lower price.  That's what it has to do with the topic.  I'm responding to someone who said $5 was expensive for that stuff.

I wouldn't pay five bucks for two Hot Dogs,chips and a drink.I can get two Hot Dogs and a drink here for 2.25
What I look for in a Hot Dog is a good Smooth, beefy sauce like you get in Rhode Island. Hold the Heartburn please.

Price is related to location. What may be considered reasonable in CA is not reasonable in NC. A Million dollar house in CA sells for $450K in Phoenix Metro, with the exception of Paradise Valley & Scottsdale. That's why all you disgruntled CA people are coming over here!

I don't think you could pay me to live in Phoenix or Scottsdale.  I think people move there because hell isn't hot enough for them.  ;)

By the way, if you're getting a lot of LA people moving there, you should be glad.  You're getting good looking and healthy people with great attitudes who actually know how to drive.  Though I saw a lot of good looking girls in Scottsdale when I was there a couple of years ago for the Barrett-Jackson auto auction.

I must say, I really liked the Fairmont hotel there.

I want my hot dog chili to taste just like the chili that the Roxalana Elementary School PTA moms made in the 1950's.  Every friday the moms would make hotdogs to sell at lunch.  We did not have a lunch room so in the morning  the moms would setup a folding table, bring in a turkey roaster to make the chili.  By the time lunch came all the students were so hungry, I could have eaten a dozen or those hot dogs.
 
My mom's recipe for chili is very good, but it still doesn't compare to that turkey roaster chili.

I don't think you could pay me to live in Phoenix or Scottsdale.  I think people move there because hell isn't hot enough for them.  ;)

By the way, if you're getting a lot of LA people moving there, you should be glad.  You're getting good looking and healthy people with great attitudes who actually know how to drive.  Though I saw a lot of good looking girls in Scottsdale when I was there a couple of years ago for the Barrett-Jackson auto auction.

I must say, I really liked the Fairmont hotel there. 


If your attitude is a reflection of those "Great CA Attitudes" please stay right where you are! I'd rather be a little warm than watch my overpriced house slide down a hill in a mudslide or burn up in a wildfire while I'm sitting for hours on a concrete slab called a freeway! BTW, breathing smog all day long is not creating "Healthy" people.
Besides you contradict yourself. You like our good looking women, you like our nice hotels, you like our cars, we're lovely people and enjoy the lifestyle benefits of a nice cost of living environment.

Captain,
 
It has been over 40 years since I tasted PTA mom chili but based on my mom's hot dog chili the ingredients were:
ground beef, onions, tomato sauce, chili power, salt, pepper.
 
I know it did not contain catsup, my mother never cooked with catsup, it was a condiment only.  She used homemade chili sauce in her baked beans, I still use chili sacue in my baked beans today.
 
In my experience West Virginians do not like their hot dog chili to be too spicy, just a little taste of the chili powder.  Aso, texture is very important,  the chili must be smooth, no big chunks of bround ground beef.
 
I wonder if anyone has any idea when chili was first added to hot dogs.  I am 62 & I cannot remember not having both chili & slaw on hotdogs.  One of my first memories is a "weiner roast" at my grandparents farm  & that must have been in the early 1050's.  My grandmother had a small iron pot that she made her hotdog chili in, I can remember her carrying the to the part of the farm where we always had "weiner roasts".

Hi claracamille,
 
I live in Charleston, WV - Kanawha City in a neighborhood called South Park, I went to South Park Elementary in the 60's, I don't remember having parents from the PTA selling anything in the school.  We had wonderful cooks who put a lot of love in the meals they fixed for the kids, everything homemade, nothing prepackaged/precooked back then.  They made the best macaroni and cheese, spanish rice, birds nests, etc... and if anything was left over after everyone was served we could stop by the kitchen and get seconds before we went to the playground..........those were the days.

Ho Ho's Texas Hot - Wiener Sauce
8 cups water Less if you like it thicker
12 to 16 oz finely ground hotdogs (I prefer Hebrew National skinless all beef)
1/2 cup cornstarch (dissolved in a little cold water)
1 tbls paprika
1 tbls chili powder
1/4 cup white vinegar
1 tsp sea or kosher salt
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp white pepper
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
a few grinds of fresh black pepper

Bring everything to a boil, except the cornstarch.
Let simmer for 30 minutes, then slowly add the cornstarch mixture, stirring constantly. Bring back to a boil, and keep stirring.
Taste along the way, adjusting the salt or pepper as you like it.
Serve on your favorite hotdog, with brown mustard, diced onion, in a steamed hotdog bun. This sauce will be thin, it is supposed to be, it is not a "chili dog" recipe. The sauce will thicken as it cools. It freezes well.
Note; Each time you reheat the sauce, it will get thicker



WHOA WHOA here!!! This is my Texas Hot Wiener recipe that I posted on this forum a while back.

tdj_tx,
My sincere apologies! I have an extensive collection of Recipes on my computer (700+) and a while back, I was re-working my files, re-organizing, re-classifying, eliminating duplicates and doing some cutting and pasting. Apparently I must have somehow switched titles on your recipe with another one I had. When it comes to computer skills, I'm roaring into the 19th Century.
If you look back deeper on Roadfood you will find a number of Posts on similar threads for Hot Dog Sauces where I have posted your recipe or the link that reverts back to your original post and I have given you full credit for your recipe.
Here's one example:

Post #11.
 It is THE BEST Hot Dog Sauce I've ever tasted, bar none. 
Again, please accept My Sincere Apology.

I'm thinking of opening a stand selling cardboard tubes, about the size of an oatmeal container, of prepared Hamburger Helper, and calling it Gruel. $2 a container. Slogan: "Enough to keep you alive and a contributing member of society for a day, or your money back."

Thank You, tdj_tx. That makes me feel much better! When I hit the lottery this week or next, I'm coming down to Leander, TX and I'm going to set you up with your own company to bottle this stuff. Start thinking of a name for it! How 'bout "Texas Weenie Wonder Sauce", "Slap Your Weenie Hot Dog Sauce" "Wonderful Weenie Sauce" "Tom's Terrific Hot Dog Fixin's"

You are more than welcome to visit, I'll keep my fingers crossed on the lottery win :-) I actually looked into creating a Hot Wiener kit with the dry ingredients and instructions. All you have to do is add the ground hotdogs and water. Turns out it's a lot more money and hassle than I would like to deal with.

No Problem---I'll supply the money and we'll hire people to handle the "Hassle". Being the Marketing Genius that I am, I already have our Marketing Strategy mapped out in my head. Just hope I don't loose it!. I can't remember what I had for breakfast!

Actually you can to hire a company that is certified to package food items. I talked to a local spice company who provide this service. You have to provide the recipe and label information and the minimum order is something like 20,000 units. Then you have to deal with pricing and distribution.
