My 4th of July Cook


Recommended Posts

I asked my wife what she wanted me to cook up. She said a traditional 4th of July for her would be Hot Dogs, Corn of the Cob, Potato Salad & Watermelon so I made it so. (I added ABT’s) I set up a Hot Dog Bar so everyone could try Hot Dog styles from around the country. (I did 4 different styles: New York, Chicago, Texas State Fair and Pinks from L.A.) This way everyone can make them exactly how they want them. I included John's Hot Dog Chili, Cheese, Onion, Grilled Onion Relish, Green Bell Pepper, Sauerkraut, Pickle, Tomato Wedges, Relish, Mustard & Catsup.

Here are the pics of making John’s Hot Dog Chili (See John’s recipe in the Recipe section)

Tons of great flavor in those pics !

Great meal for the 4th.

I don't often eat hot dogs, but when I do they will always have John's HD Chili on them for sure. It's a winner.

Thanks Dub. It sure was good. I'll be trying it on some hamburgers today.
