    Default having a craving

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    I first had one of those assemblies at a hot dog stand near the ferry terminal in Seattle. They’re colorful but I’d rather have a taco.

    I know some people swear by them... but I can't do a Chicago dog.

    Looks good, but locally I can get "Chinese sausages" about that same size that taste like Chinese spare ribs. You eat one of those, and you will give up on regular hotdogs.

    Now I have a craving, too. You're a very bad man for bringing this up

    Bad... maybe.

    But he's not the wurst.

    I ate at a food cart the other day that offered a chili dog with chorizo sausage and spicy pickled peppers under the meaty chili with cheddar topping. Best thing I've eaten for weeks. They also had some of the best tamales I've ever had. I'll definitely stop there again when I'm in that part of town.

    Folks, I got 'spoiled' bad when growing up in North suburban Chicago in the mid-1960's - I lived just a few blocks from 'Fluky's' and 'Wolfy's' , just a couple miles from some great hot dog places in Evanston and Highland Park. When doing an 'all-night ' cramming session before an exam, I would head over to Fluky's and get a bag of 7 double Polish sausage sandwiches (dressed similar to the photo in the OP ) and 5 chocolate milkshakes, and eat and study my way through the night ! ! ! (Great memories )

    Give me a natural casing dog that snaps when you bite it. Some brown mustard, and light on the onions. About like this.

    In Berkeley there was a local hotdog chain with an excellent assortment of dogs, brauts, etc. TopDog I think.

    We used to frequently stop at Fluky's whenever the band was in Chicago. These days we can get everything - the proper buns, dogs, peppers, etc at one of our local supermarkets and make our own. The other Chicago staple that we make is Italian beef, with super-thinly sliced roast beef and we use Chicago Johnny's seasoning mix, which nails the proper flavor for the "gravy" that you dunk it in.

    Then for either dogs or beef I found these on Amazon, just for fun.

    Is that really food?
    Only way I would eat that is if tied down and force fed!

    PS: should have taken a pic of the ciabatta I had for lunch today- far more appetising.

    I don't know if a Scot is the best judge of food. I couldn't find a photo of the deep fried haggis pizza but this is revolting enough to get the idea across.

    hagis pizza.jpg

    Scottish Deep-Fried Pizza

    Deep-fried pizza is a Scottish concoction consisting of a pizza that is deep-fried in hot oil (without being dipped in batter) instead of being baked in an oven. It can be found in numerous chips shops throughout the country, where it is fried in the same oil where fish and chips are prepared.

    This extremely caloric and unhealthy meal is often served with salt, vinegar, or chips in order to improve its flavors.

    Who said I am a Scot? Only been here 16 years; not taken out any immigration papers yet.

    Anyway, I have just corrected my post- it was actually a ciabatta I had. Failing memory/senior moment; sorry.

    Sadly the local pub does not do deep fried Mars Bars!

    You must try the Pizza Crunch Supper, 5.70 at my local chipshop. Half a 10" cheese and tomato pizza, battered, deep-fried and served with chips. About a million, trillion Calories. Best washed down with a "can o' ginger" (Irn Bru) to help scour the fat off your teeth and tongue.

    Awesome.

    The Chicago Hot Dog, "drug t'ru da garden":

    1 poppy seed bun, steamed
    1 all-beef kosher hot dog, grilled (Vienna preferred, but Hebrew National will do)
    2 kosher dill pickle wedges
    2 tomato wedges
    Neon green Chicago-style pickle relish (you can fake this by adding a little blue food color to ordinary pickle relish and letting it sit for a week or so)
    Diced white onion
    Sport peppers (sport peppers are small, pickled green chiles — think pickled serrano chiles)
    Yellow mustard
    Celery salt

    Put mustard on the hot dog bun. Add the grilled dog.
    Wedge 2 tomato wedges betwixt bund and dog on one side of the bun and th 2 pickle wedges on the other
    Top the dog with more mustard, then add the pickle relish, diced onion, and the sport peppers.
    Sprinkle celery salt over the whole thing.

    Enjoy.

    Sport peppers describe: https://www.chilipeppermadness.com/c...sport-peppers/

    And yes, Chicago pickle relish really is that green:

    We never had an A&W here in Alpena so that's probably the one I stopped at on trips south :-)

    Likely so.

    I was up that way a couple weeks ago. Now it’s a taco stand at the Tawas City Beach Park.
