Coney Island Hot Dog Sauce

Recommended Posts

I dug this out cuz we are making a batch this weekend, and thought I would post it here . Not quite as good as the stuff at some small Coney Dog Stands, but the best home recipe I have come across so far.

2 # Hamburger

2 Cups Tomato Juice

3 Teas Salt

1 Med Onion diced

1 Teas Minced Garlic

2 Whole Cloves put in a cheese cloth bag and remove after cooking.

1 Heaping Tablespoon Cumin

3 Heaping Tablespoons Chili Powder

Brown Hamburger and then mix in the rest of the ingredients and simmer for at least 2 hours.

Nice! Very similar to mine plus I add a diced up red and green pepper. Plus crushed red pepper till I get some heat...

I'm with dark cloud, gotta throw in some pepper.

Coney Island dogs are not the same as coney dogs. Coney dogs are an Ohio/Michigan phenomenon - basically beanless chili on hotdogs. Coney Island dogs are either red hots or a spicey white hot dogs not topped with chili.

About an hour south of where I live, in Scranton PA they call em weiners. Lots of places around there sell them along with weiner sauce and special short buns to match the short dog or weiner. Basically a bean-less chili type sauce. Go great with some chopped onions and shredded cheese. grin

Gotta remember this is from up here in Minnesota. I am sure there are some real differences even tho the name is the same.

We do pour on the diced raw onions to top it off, cheese is not so usual. And it is similar to chili without beans, but different none the less.

I can see adding the red pepper to give it some heat if that is what you are used to, we are probably used to it being a bit more tame.

I may have to single out some of the batch and through some crushed red pepper in to kick it up a bit and see how it turns out.

Similar but diff, I like that...

They are usually our friday evening snack at camp. A big fish fry with beans and homrfrys followed a few hours later with spicy dogs. Washed down with a few beverages. And tums for desert!

    • I've done both wet and dry brines with much better results with the dry. As grainbelt stated you can mix up whatever sweetness you like. Here's a simple one but pretty good. Its ALL per pound of meat.   1- Tbsp of tenderquick  1.5 Tbsp brown sugar  1/4 tsp black pepper  1 tsp garlic powder ( optional) Mix all the spices together and coat the belly , depending on the size you might have to cut it in half,  this is when you do that and stuff em in two 2 gallon ziplocs.   You can add some maple syrup to the bags as well,flip them  every day for 6 or 7 days then rinse them off real well,  put them on a wire rack and place back in the fridge uncovered. Next day smoke , and like grainbelt said your target internal temp is around 130, let them cool off and wrap up in plastic wrap for the next day of slicing. It might sound a lot of steps but its not that bad, with great results!! Good luck.    
    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
    • Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness. 
    • I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.
    • never heard of it....  
    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
