Summer Grilling Speech

I don’t know what you are. I don’t know what you want. If you are looking for seasoning, I can tell you I don’t have spices. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for things like you. If you let my hunger go now, that’ll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don’t, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will grill you.

Sal’s Chilean Style Hot Dogs

I’m actually well known for this with my friends. I saw it on a Food Network show, I don’t remember which one. It looked tasty and I filed it away for future use.

The very next weekend, I was at a friend’s son’s birthday. After grabbing a plate of food, I realized that I had all the ingredients for a modified version of the hot dog I had seen. After piling everything together I took my first bite.

I experienced a nice, salty crunch followed by the cool, tangy, sweet taste of the slaw and then a snap and burst of meaty flavor. It was weiner synergy. (Are you getting excited?)


Hot Dogs (Your favorite brand)

Hot Dog Buns (Your favorite brand)

Cole Slaw (I prefer tangy)

Catsup  (You can use ketchup if you prefer)

Lay’s Classic Chips or similar (Don’t use ruffled or thick chips)

I prefer steamed hot dogs for that extra snap. Just add some water to the pot, make sure it doesn’t go above the steamer, then bring to a boil.

Toss in your dogs, turn off the burner and cover.

They’ll be ready in about 5 mins or so. Otherwise, nuke, boil, or grill them.

Put the dog in the bun, add catsup and top with cole slaw.

You can vary the amounts to your liking. 

I usually put the ketchup under the slaw, but DD said you wouldn’t see it in the picture.

Finally, top with crushed potato chips… Don’t be shy now.

Mmm… Enjoy!

I think the original had mayo, catsup, cabbage and chips, so this is just my recollection.

I know it doesn’t make sense, but please try it! The whole really is greater than the sum of its parts.

Buy a Beer Company

Pledge as low as five dollars, and if the $300 million bid needed to buy the Pabst Brewing Co. is successful,¬†all those who pitched in will get that amount of money back in beer, as well as a certificate of ownership, and a say in the company’s future.

Seriously Disappointed

I was really hoping there was going to be a huge flaming hot Cheeto log in there.
