Very good, but in trying to match the hot dog sauce at a local landmark, I knew there was no barbecue sauce in it so I omitted it and instead added 2 tbsp. tomato paste, 1/2 tsp. cider vinegar, a little paprika and cayenne. I also increased the chili powder and cumin. This would be fine without using the food processor, but I did pulse this through a few times - again, to better match our local place's sauce....which I ended up doing, perfectly! Thank for the recipe! With my changes, it will appear at every one of our cookouts!
Rather than cooking meat beforehand, try putting everything in your pot and simmer for a couple of hours. Found that we like it best this way. No need for a food processor either.
Really tasty! After it simmered and thickened up I tasted it and added about a tsp of hot pepper sauce just for a little extra heat. Enjoyed it-Thank you!
good, but a lil too sweet. I made this for a bbq to try something diff, nobody put it on their hotdog but several ate it like a sloppy joe, on a hamburger bun. This makes a great sloppy joe recipe, i would add a lil more spice than sweetness tho
Great recipe. unfortunately, I had to mix in blender and meat was pureed, not chopped.Still loved it on a recent camping trip to the beautiful Catskill Mts!
This will be a staple at every BBQ we have this summer!
You can't go wrong making this per directions; your unique "signature" rests with YOUR CHOICE particular flavor style BBQ sauce, your custom amounts of chili powder AND that size "pinch" of red pepper flakes. This "sauce" has American Cook Out splashed all over it---and can inspire one to construct their own fancy Hot Dog. I butterfly cut the Hot Dog franks; speeds up grill time AND doubles the amount of franks, so everyone has plenty to enjoy!!
Very tasty! A great alternative to that canned stuff and very easy to prepeare. Adds unique flavor.
