I sincerely hope this lives a very short life.
Without the hot dog, it sounds much tastier. But probably messy in the extreme.
To celebrate opening day in baseball?
Hell yeah I’d eat that! (Needs onions and jalapenos, but what doesn’t, amirite?)
My friend is going to order some.
I’m a Michigan native and I would eat the hell out of this. I would want to add raw onions somehow though!
I just reread the article based on your comments, bbqboy and NotDoobieWah. I wanted to check what company provides the weiners…
Based on my limited knowledge, Dearborn sausages are far down the list of preferred hot dogs here in metro Detroit. The Coney Island diners I’ve eaten hot dogs at run about 90% using Koegel hot dogs out of Flint, MI. The spice profile of Dearborn hot dogs is much stronger than a Koegel. It would “interfere” with how the chili sauce is supposed to bring its flavor.
I don’t think I’ve ever had a Dearborn but Koegels were EVERYWHERE when I was growing up in mid-Michigan. I remember a mild flavor with a lot of snap in the casing.
Yep. That’s why I think they are so widely favored in the Coney diners here. That snap is so important.
