I saw a Matlock show on TV, where he raved about the best hot dog which was served with chopped onion and little hot green peppers. What where the peppers?

I also have some very basic questions on how to cook hot dogs in an electic skillet. What temp, how long to cook? What temp to keep hot?

I've been volunteering serving food for a weekly Bingo game.
I have been re-warming pre-prepared hotdogs. Now I want to cook:
Hebrew National 1/4 lb hot dogs: "All Beef" and "Beef Polish Sausage"

I want to arrive, get hot dogs ready. then continue to have the hot dogs ready 2 hours before Bingo. I also serve food at a break, after another 1.5 hours, but think the same dogs shouldn't cook that long. I seem to get burning on the Polish Sausage even at 275 F.

For hot dog buns: seedless jumbo; sesame seeded Hoogie; sprouted whole wheat (I'm in the San Francisco Bay area).
I notice that naked, or at least minimal bun, mustard, onion, brings out the flavor of the dog. The Beef Polish have more zesty flavor, and grilling brings out much more flavor than steamed "all beef" hot dogs I had been buying prepared, and serving re-warmed.

I have French's Yellow mustard, Ketchup, I'm adding chopped yellow onions, and relish. Reading the comments here, I'm considering a yellow onion saute in olive oil.

I watched a Matlock show where he raved about "the best hot dogs" served with some little hot peppers. How do I make these "Matlock" hot dogs? What type of pepper? They were little and green, and might have had stems on.

What other garnishes, touches, would make for a more complete Hot Dog offering?
I'm shopping at CostCo and a United Market (normal grocery store in California) for supplies so far.
I did see some Sabrett pepper sauce on the web, but $5/lb seems a bit high.

I want to have a healthy gross margin charging $2.50

Thank you all in advance, for your helpful suggestions,
WildWalker

Westerners eat more poultry dogs than anyone else in the nation. Southerners are a close 2nd. In the Mid West they eat more pork and beef dogs. In the East they eat more all beef dogs. In Chicago yellow mustard, dark green (neon) relish (or pickle spears), chopped raw onions, tomato slices, and celery salt on a poppy seed bun is the way to dress a dog. In New York: steamed onions and pale yellow mustard sauce. In the South: slaw dogs that they term "dragged through the garden" are topped with coleslaw. Kansas City: sauerkraut and melted Swiss on a sesame bun.

As far as cooking, there's deep frying. A lot of people (who really know what a good dog should taste like) prefer their dogs boiled first then grilled. There's a reason why most hot dog stands boil their dogs: they're fast, they're good, and there's few left overs.

I think that the problem is this: once the dogs are grilled you cannot store them hot without significant (and unappealling) shrinkage. Nobody wants a hot dog that looks and tastes like a shriveled pencil eraser. I think (but I don't know for sure) that both the deep fry and grilled cooking methods are made to order.

Perhaps Matlock enjoyed a Chicago style hot dog, (similar to Fluky's), which would imply the peppers would have been:
1. serrano
2. sport peppers

I found some links:
Sport Peppers & Giardiniera
http://www.firebreath.com/s.nl/c.ACCT89406/ck.QI4cwFiJALtmUuOf/cktime.5160/sc.2/category.6/it.A/id.557/.f;jsessionid=b0c4a93692db4ba09dbed90c195bc90d
----------------------------------
http://www.guidelive.com/profile/176220/
The hot dog ($2.50) and Polish sausage ($3) are served Chicago-style, topped with neon-green sweet relish, chunks of white onion, tomato slices, a slice of dill pickle, and a Chi-town original: "sport" peppers. Similar in shape to serrano peppers (yet with a flavor more like banana peppers) they are 1- to 2-inch hot peppers pickled in vinegar. A Chicago-style dog will always be topped with at least two of them.

The Polish sausage was more like a big, fat hot dog with a flavor to match, moist and meaty with a nice hint of spice.
-------------------
Fresh serrano peppers are often diced and mixed with chopped tomato, onion, and cilantro for salsa.

Matlock was just an actor. Name's Andy Griffith. Seems like a nice enough fella, but what does he, or more importantly, the writer who wrote that line, know about hotdogs?




Clothier, I am shocked at you. If this site is not a safe haven for those with unnatural food obsessions, where else can they find comfort? And why pop his bubble about Matlock? Next thing you'll be telling me there is no Santa Claus.

Not true in Chicago and the suburbs. Chicago hot dog stands out number the fast food giants serving Vienna Beef, Red Hot Chicago, and Best Kosher hot dogs which all are 100% pure beef. Vienna, Best Kosher, and Hebrew National are sold throughout southeastern Wisconsin retail food chains as: Piggly Wiggly, Pick & Save, Walmart, Sam's Club, and the Jewel. You'll find these brands at hot dog stands in Milwaukee, Madison, Green Bay, and even in Mercer, which is in the northwoods. Vienna packages and sells a product in Wisconsin called Lambeau Field dogs, the official hot dog of the Green Bay Packers. The Lambeau Field Vienna hot dog has gained a reputation as a "starter brat" by the Packers.

The all beef hot dog is alive and well in the midwest!

Correct about the continual apppearance of theme of hot dogs by street and court house vendors. Incorrect about script not ever having details of recipe.

In BRENNEN, the ritual of making the hot dog is in the script with details. The plot is based on the tension between the common bond between Matlock and Brennen grounded in sharing a love for the same style hot dog, and their roles as opposing sides in a legal battle where some lawyer is dirty.

Out here on the west coast, the only hot dog I have seen made with hot peppers is on the Matlock TV program.

WildWalker

BRENNEN; 160. [8-17] 2/17/94
http://www.tagsrwc.com/matlock/160.html

Matlock meets an assistant DA (Michael Brennen
played by George Dzundza) who's just like
him, but their friendship is hampered by the fact that they're
on opposite sides of a case.

The Matlock Brennen friendship is centered around their liking the same hot dog style.
The program talks about and even shows the preparation of the hot dog, the brand and city the hot dogs are bought from, and the type of hot little peppers placed on the dog.
The preparation shown includes:
hot dogs boiled
onions chopped not cooked
hot little peppers added.
I don't recall the relish or mustard.

If we want tv-themed food receipes, shouldn't we look for the Soup Nazi's Muligatawny, Granny Clampett's hog gizzards, Ralph Kramden's 'Delicious Mystery Apetizer', and any one of Cliff Huxtable's amazing colorful sweater-expanding sandwiches?

I'd appreciate your comments on the draft of the menu I've planned for tomorrow. Bold condiments are those I expect to have ready tomorrow, non bold I'll be preparing this week for next Tuesday. Hope the formatting and fonts come through OK.

Thanks for constructive comments,
WildWalker

Menu:
1) Sliced Chicken Breast ¼ lb approx

Hot Dogs: Savory Hebrew National ¼ lb Kosher, USDA & rabbinical inspected and vouched to be completely free of, that is, No By-Products, No artificial colorings:
2) *Jumbo Beef Frank ¼ lb,
Only 1 gr carb! No fillers! No artificial flavorings.
3) *Beef Polish Sausage ¼ lb.
Only 7 gr carbs! More seasoned and tasty than the Jumbo Beef Frank from the added 6 grams of carbs.

Boiled then Grilled: Combines the best of boiling and grilling.
Boiling gets the pre-cooked sausage hot and plumped with moisture. The boiled hot dog is moist and mild in flavor. Flavor is usually built up from condiments which often largly overpower milder flavor of boiled sausage.
Grilling develops the latent flavor among the sizling melting juices from within the sausage. The grilled sausage has a very good grilled flavor of it's own that may be enjoyed on it's own, with minimal added bun and condiments. Or condiments can be selected to stand up to or even conquor the flavor of the sausage.

Surved On:
0) Bed of Organic Mixed Salad Greens
1. *Seedless Jumbo Hot Dog Bun
2. *Poppy Seed Hot Dog Bun
3. *Sesame seed Hogie Roll
4. *Sprouted Whole Wheat Hot Dog Bun. Hearty, more a roll, holds minimal condiments

Condiments: *Salt to taste; *Refined Carbs: *Sugar; *Sweet Sour Base; Tomato: Chopped; *Ketchup; Tangy Tomato Sauce, Sabrett's; Salza; Pickle: Dill; *Green Sweet Relish.
Garlic: Crushed; Grilled; Onion: Chopped; Sauteed; Tangy Stewed, Flo's.
Mustard: *Yellow; Spicy Brown; (Have water ready before tasting any of the following) BBQ Ginger Mustard (WildWalkers). Hot Peppers: sliced Jalapeno strips; Jalapeno Sauce.

Styles:
Chicken on Greens,,
The Matlock, a Chicago 7-ingredient style: boiled Jumbo Beef Frank on a Poppy seed bun with yellow mustard; green sweet relish; chopped yellow onions, chopped red tomatoes, a dill pickle spear, hot peppers, and celery salt.
Chicago Maxwell Street: yellow mustard; grilled onions; & hot peppers.
Sauteed Onions (alone)
BBQ Ginger Mustard & Sauteed Onions; & grilled garlic

Sounds like you have a neat setup Wildwalker !! Welcome to Roadfood ! I like to boil my hot dogs in
water or beer and then drain the water and fry the dogs in the hot pan to put a singe on the outside !
I usually steam the buns over the fry pan while I am boiling the dogs !

I like yellow mustard, onions and chili on my hot dog !

As for the peppers used on Matlock .... I'm not sure which ones they were. I watched the show,
but do not remember that.

Good luck !

Kristi's right, of course, however I do believe that both Jill St. John and Anthony Geary both once had their hair styled by Christophe (St. John's late 70's shag and Mr. Geary Weird Al-like perm).

(Could I have penned anything more gay? Not that there's anything wrong with that.)

In the East they eat more all beef dogs. In Chicago yellow mustard, dark green (neon) relish (or pickle spears), chopped raw onions, tomato slices, and celery salt on a poppy seed bun is the way to dress a dog.

I have begun looking for Jumbo poppy seed buns...have not found them yet. Would a pickle spear replace the need for the neon green relish?
I used up most of my relish tonight, and would rather just provide the kosher dill pickle spear.

In New York: steamed onions and pale yellow mustard sauce.
I'm not Jewish, and am curious if there is difference in the way the dogs would be dressed in Jewish NY vs Jewish San Francisco...or it's northern neighbor, Marin?

In the South: slaw dogs that they term "dragged through the garden" are topped with coleslaw.

Kansas City: sauerkraut and melted Swiss on a sesame bun.
I think any cheese would violate the kosher rule against combining the fruit of the animal's labor, and the animals' flesh.

As far as cooking, there's deep frying. A lot of people (who really know what a good dog should taste like) prefer their dogs boiled first then grilled. There's a reason why most hot dog stands boil their dogs: they're fast, they're good, and there's few left overs.

I find the Hebrew Nationals, either the Jumbo Frank , or the Polish Sausage, have no fillers, grain. It's the fillers, the grains,
that expand to plump up some franks. I tried boiling these, and nothing happened. They didn't plump up. I find grilling on low heat, 250 F, cooking slowly, the franks get nice color, but don't burn.
They continue to swell up while being grilled, and they stay looking great for a couple hours. These are sturdy franks.

I think that the problem is this: once the dogs are grilled you cannot store them hot without significant (and unappealling) shrinkage.

I brought home some loftovers tonight. I will investigate in the coming days. I think I will devour these first few remnants.

Nobody wants a hot dog that looks and tastes like a shriveled pencil eraser. I think (but I don't know for sure) that both the deep fry and grilled cooking methods are made to order.

I've never seen anyone eat hot dogs with whole peppers inserted in them.
I like spicy food, and thought I might enjoy it.

I enjoy exploring food. I used to often find items on the menu of restourants I had not had...and would order it for the new learning experience.

Since I cook and serve hot dogs at Lucky Cafe, I am curios to explore variety in hot dogs.

I think it's interesting the the Brennen episode in particular, presents the scene of these hot dog fanatics which seems to be an exact caricature of some of the most knowledgeable, helpful characters in these forums. I mean, not many people order hot dogs specifically from a given vendor in a far away town. That was depicted, and that seems to happen here. :-)

Blushing. :-)

It being an older crowd, they don't really want HOT SPICY food.
I even got some sarrano peppers to substitute for Sport peppers to make a Chicago 7 ingrediant hot dog. I will have to make myself one tomorrow, and use small slivers of Jalapeno.
The Jalapeno is not as hot as a sarrano. I don't believe I'm up to that.

I made some Salza that I didn't have a use for. :-) I think it's a little too hot for my liking.

I made up some Jalapeno Sauce. Actually I juiced em, so it's Jalapeno juice concoction. My name for it is "Green Dragon Fire".

Well, it was a fun project for me. Now that they are prepared, I will have to see how hot I can take it.

I had a 25% increase in business due to the improved menu. I am pleased with that.

Blushing. :-)

It being an older crowd, they don't really want HOT SPICY food.
I even got some sarrano peppers to substitute for Sport peppers to make a Chicago 7 ingrediant hot dog. I will have to make myself one tomorrow, and use small slivers of Jalapeno.
The Jalapeno is not as hot as a sarrano. I don't believe I'm up to that.

I made some Salza that I didn't have a use for. :-) I think it's a little too hot for my liking.

I made up some Jalapeno Sauce. Actually I juiced em, so it's Jalapeno juice concoction. My name for it is "Green Dragon Fire".

Well, it was a fun project for me. Now that they are prepared, I will have to see how hot I can take it.

I had a 25% increase in business due to the improved menu. I am pleased with that.

It's only fair you explain the connections. Buddy Epsen?

And I didn't realize invitations were to be given out on a merit system...I need to rework my list..."Auntie Jeanette? Cousin Pierre? Can you find the connection between Opie and Madonna?"


Three things, EliseT:

1. I can't explain the Buddy Ebsen connection. I just can't.

2. I probably should have first discussed with you the offering of invtiations to your wedding as prizes. Sorry.

3. Finally, even your Auntie Jeanette could connect-the-dots between Opie and Madonna by knowing that:


Ron Howard was the voice of Tom Colonic in "Osmosis Jones" with Laurence Fishburne

Laurence Fishburne was in "Rumble Fish" with Nicholas Cage

Nick Cage was in "City of Angels" with Meg Ryan

Meg Ryan was in "Sleepless in Seattle" with Tom Hanks

And Tom Hanks was in "A League of Their Own" with, yes, Madonna.

There is a theory that everyone on earth can be connected through six degrees of seperation. There have been studies done where a letter is given to someone in, say, Nebraska and they have to get it to someone in a place like Tasmania. So the Nebraskan perhaps has a hairdresser who is from Sydney. They give it to the hairdresser, who sends it to her mom, who sends it to her ex-neighbor who lives in Tasmania now, who knows the person's aunt, etc. They have found they are able to do this almost unfailingly in under six degrees of seperation.

A game has come out of this where you connect famous people, as I-95 has so skillfully demonstrated above. I think they chose "Kevin Bacon" because his name has the same number of syllables and rhymes with seperation. But he has actually starred in alot of movies with an odd assortment of stars, and you can connect him to almost anyone.

I actually took the easier route through Penny Marshall, but also ending up with a League of their own.

And just to come full circle, the direct route to Mr. Bacon from Ms. Marshall is that:

Penny Marshall was in "She's Having a Baby" (cameo) with Kevin Bacon.


(Extra credit for all of you that also recognize "She's Having a Baby" as having a soundtrack featuring 1980s chanteuses Kate Bush "This Woman's Work" -- more recently recorded by Maxwell) and Kirsty MacColl (doing the Smith's "You Just Haven't Earned it Yet Baby.")

Rick Springfield was on General Hospital from 1981 to 1983.
Demi Moore was on in 1982.
She was also in A Few Good Men with (you guessed it) Kevin Bacon.

OK, Buddy Ebson guest starred as a hobo on the Andy Griffith show. He was also a host of Academy of Country Music Awards, as was Reba MacIntyre, who starred in tremors with...Kevin Bacon!!!

It's just spooky, isn't it?

I love Hebrew National beef franks, but lately, I have really enjoyed Stadium red hots. They're nice and plump with red casings that have a bit of cayenne in there. The only thing is I have to go to certain parts of town to buy them. I can't buy them in the parts of town where all the rich people live for some reason. Maybe those folks just don't know how to eat;)

Gordon,
How do you do Google searches for Matlock scripts?

I put Matlock and script into the "must have words", and got lots of hits, but after reading many...still not one talking about dramatic scripts of TV series.

In particular, I am searching for script of the Brennen episode, which I believe names type of pepper, Brand and vendor of hot dog.

Thank you,
