Recipe for frankfurter/wiener/sausage - Sun, 01/11/04 10:15 AM

Can anyone recommend a good recipe for a frankfurter/wiener/sausage (what ever you want to call it)? I live abroad and hope to set up a small New York style hot dog stand however the local "sausages" aren't very appetizing plus importing them won't be suitable.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

The best source that I know for sausage making, sausage recipes is a book by Bruce Aidells. He only has one recipe for hot dogs, Chicago Style Hot Dogs. Bruce describes his trials and tribulations with this recipe. Temperature and cut of grind are important because you must create an "emulsion" in order for the recipe to work. Remember, hot dogs are cooked before they are put into the casing.

I understand temperature is critcal in the process. I have that book, and will read that recipe again. I'll report tomorrow.

Thanks for the info. The more I look at this "small" hot dog venture, the more it looks like it might grow to something bigger. I'm still searching locally for an acceptable ready made sausage but the only tasty ones are home made coming from small deli style outlets. They are very expensive indeed.
Any other ideas would be great.

Where exactly do you live? Abroad where? We're not talking about Houston, TX right?

Houston TX? Abroad? I suppose I was being somewhat presumptious be assuming most readers are located in the US. Or do most Americans considered Texas as being another country/world?

No Actually I'm in Asia and am feeling a little entrapraneurial these days, so I thought some hot dog carts might be a way to excercise these feelings.

Any comments/suggestions?

Sorry, your profile said something about Houston, TX and I thought... well, I wondered if you knew where you were .

Now, who do we know in Asia that can supply you with the makings for an authentic Chicago Style Dog?

Try this link:

international@viennabeef.com

There is nothing more authentically Chicago than Vienna Beef. And they will have everything that you will need - all kinds of dogs, buns, condiments, signage, etc.

Actually, registering on Roadfood.com required a state and city to be submitted, thus Huston TX. Thanks for your help and I'll keep you posted.
