"In high school, we used to walk to the drive-in and order hot dogs after class. I got mine with everything: chili, mustard and coleslaw."


  1. Grilled or Boiled Hot Dog
  2. Cook on hot oiled grates, turning, until charred, about 5 minutes. Or cook in boiling water or beer, 4 to 6 minutes.
  3. Chili
  4. Combine 1 pound ground beef, 1/2 grated onion, 1 cup tomato sauce and one 6-ounce can tomato paste in a large pot. Stir in 1 tablespoon each chili powder and sugar, 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, 1/2 teaspoon each pepper and garlic salt and 1 cup water. Add 1 bay leaf, then cover and simmer over medium-low heat until thick, about 2 hours. Stir in 1 1/2 teaspoons white wine vinegar and simmer 30 more minutes. Remove the bay leaf.
  5. Coleslaw
  6. Yellow Mustard
