Tonight I cooked my first hotdogs on the BGE since I got it more than two years ago. There was some hickory left in the charcoal from my last cook, which added a nice flavor. I normally like my hotdogs boiled with steamed buns like at the ballpark, but this was a nice change. Tomorrow night spatchcock chicken rubbed with Dizzy Dust, fries and chalet sauce. [p]RayS

    RayS, I take it you simmer this sauce for a while, then thicken it. Please tell us how you do it.

    Nature Boy, if you would really like to treat yourself, and the family of course, try and find some Farmland All Beef Pure Black Angus quarter pound hot dogs and throw them on the grill. Cook indirect until outside is to your liking. I haven't had a hot dog this good in years![p]Btw, good the goody box yesterday.....thanx.[p]Brews........

    Speaking of raising the hot dog bar, the competition here in Charleston is having a "Top Dog" category. Since the theme is baseball, that's pretty appropriate and should be a lot of fun. They are doing a chili contest as well. I'm eggcited about the dog competition![p]Jim

    RayS,[p]I didn't read the replies to your post and am not familiar with dog condiments around the country. Although I've lived in the Chicagoland area all of my life I only recently become familiar with a dog condiment that I now hate to do with out - celery salt.[p]Give a try on your next dog, I think you'll like it, just sprinkle some on when putting on your other condiments.[p]Keep em Smokin,
    Jethro

    Rumrunner,
    Where can you pick these up? Any mail order?

  • RumrunnerRumrunner Posts: 563
    Kip, no mail order that I know of. Check out Farmland's site and where to buy in your area. You won't be disappointed.

    The package says to mix 1 cup of cold water to the mixture, mixing well, add 1 cup of boiling water, bring to a boil on med. heat, simmer for 3 minutes or until thickened. Use as a dip for chicken and fries. And if you are ever in Canada, visit Swiss Chalet for the real thing.[p]RayS

    RayS,
    Don't know what's in the package--but your recipe already has 3 cups of water. Do you add 2 more cups of water, one cold and one boiling? Or will those 2 cups be part of the 3 cups?

    Judy Mayberry,[p]The package states 2 cups total. I guess I did't read the clone recipe before I posted it.[p]By the way the package stuff tasted just like the restaurant.[p]RayS
  • RaySRayS Posts: 114
    Jethro,[p]Thanks, I will give it a try. I'm always on the look out for different tastes.[p]RayS
