Default Chicago style hot dogs

With all the Chicagoans living in the Villages, are there any Chicago Hot Dog places here?

The best Chicago style hot dog is from the hot dog vendor at Lake Sumter Landing. Make sure they steam the bun.

Please describe a Chicago Hot Dog.
the bun, the dog and the sauce

In north Jersey I knew many places that made different types of hot dogs.
In south Jersey, nothing.

(I make a point of getting a hot dog from the vendor at the Home Depot Exit door when I am at HD).

I WAS ALSO CURIOUS AS TO WHAT THEY MIGHT BE LIKE........FOUND BELOW ON FOOD.COM

HERE IS A PHOTO, PLUS WHERE TO ORDER........ THEY SHIP.

Ship Chicago Style Hot Dogs / Taste of Chicago

CHICAGO STYLE HOT DOGS

""The authentic stands use Vienna Beef franks and buns with poppy seeds and that trademark green relish and yellow mustard.

If you're not fortunate enough to live near a stand , this home version does nicely.

The natural casing frankfurters have a pleasant "pop" when you bite them and are far superior to normal hot dogs.

I don't advise using serranos in place of sport peppers as they are not the same type of chile and the serranos are MUCH hotter (as well as not usually being found pickled). ""

Ingredients

4 natural casing beef frankfurters ( like Boar's Head brand) 4 hot dog buns ( with poppyseeds if you can find them)

1 small onion, diced fine

3 -4 teaspoons sweet pickle relish ( bright green type if you can find it!)

1 cold-pack kosher dill pickle, quartered lengthwise

1 small tomato, sliced into julienne strips

4 -8 pickled sport bell peppers or 4 -8 tiny hot peppers ( Kroger sells these)

dusseldorf-style brown mustard, with horseradish,to taste ( may use yellow mustard)

celery seed

poppy seed ( omit if using seeded buns)

beer, for simmering ( standard golden lager preferred; not authentic) (optional)

Directions

Simmer frankfurters in beer or water for approximately 10 minutes.
Warm buns in microwave, until slightly warm and soft.

To assemble hot dogs, place frank in each bun.

Add mustard to taste; top with dill spear, relish, onion, tomato, and 1-2 sport peppers (Jalapenos"might" be a reasonable substitute if you are desperate to find the sport peppers, but the taste won't be quite the same).

Sprinkle with celery and poppy seeds.

Serve 4

Always found it interesting that when we travel to Largo, St. Pete area, there seem to be a lot of stores in that area with Chicago style beef sandwiches and hot dogs. There was a store here that had them, but sadly closed a few years ago.

It is hard to find some Midwest food items here like Eli's cheesecake... Found Gino's East pizza at Fresh Market, but haven't tried it yet.

The hot dog cart is parked next to the drink kiosk on the Square across from Panera. It is run by the movie theater and brought to the location on the Square on busy nights such as Rocky or Uncle Bob or Scooter. And a lot of vendor nights.

No poppyseed bun or pepperocinos (mild jalapenos in a jar is the stand's substitute), and I don't remember dill pickle quarters. But its a large sized all beef hot dog cooked Chicago style with a good bun and most of the trimmings. As good as I've had here by far.

When I was a kid, the south side Chicago style was available only at hot dog stands and included:

A Rosen's bakery poppyseed bun (lightly steamed)
A fat, kosher beef hotdog with a skin (for the bite) boiled with a clove of garlic in the water
Chopped onion
Yellow mustard (Ketchup was forbidden)
One or two sport peppers (small, whole)
A kosher dill pickle spear
and MAYBE that weird, green pickle relish. Just maybe.


In later years, the hotdog evolved with a new chain of stands called Bozo's Hotdogs (later named Boz's hot dogs for trademark reasons)
It included:
A poppyseed bun (lightly steamed)
An all beef Ballpark Dinner Frank (still a fatso hotdog- skinny hotdogs were laughed at)
chopped onion
Yellow mustard
Seeded, fresh plum tomato wedges
Seeded cucumber spear
sport peppers (if requested)
celery salt

That's how I now serve my hotdogs at home. ( I occasionally still put a half clove of garlic in the boiling water) I found that one can request (ahead) for poppyseed hotdog buns at Publix- they will make them!

Good eating, in my book.

My dear friend Ruthie who lived next door to us turned us to Nathan's hot dogs and also Hebrew National. The best we had ever had from a grocery.

We still miss brats und metts like we could buy in Zinzinnati.

Uptown Girl, here's a pretty close picture of the hot dog stand dog you described:

Thank you, Uptown Girl,

I just printed your post.

You have great credibility as far as I am concerned, be it hot dogs or landscapers or haircuts or lots of other things -- I always read your posts. And now, finally, I feel like I have found the true meaning of the Chicago hot dog because I know you would know.

I think I've got it now, but I need to know what a sport pepper is.
