Where I come from no Tigers game is complete without a Detroit Coney. It's a grilled, natural-casing hot dog, loaded with chili sauce, mustard, and onions. Yummy...Detroit-style yummy!

I'm from Detroit and I've thought this is how most people eat a Coney! Of course the best 'chili' for them is the bulk 'dehydrated' chili you can get from Sherwood Foods. and lots of diced onion and good mustard like Plochmans. one can also put on some saurkraut ( if your from the Hamtramck area! ) Read More

Detroit style Coney sauce has beef heart in it. Also no tomato products, which are a main ingredient in most canned chilis. This is just a chili dog "recipe". But props for using a natural casing dog, and the proper mustard and onion. Read More

Ashley so many States have a way of making dogs "their own" which I think is so cool. My hubby LOVES his Red Hots so I'm always looking for new ways to make them for him. Needless to say the boy was a happy camper when I served him your Detroit recipe. You're so adorable and I can't believe that you've got two little ones! Of course all Ashley's are beautiful as I've got a gorgeous one myself! Thanks so much for sharing!! Read More

Although I've had chili dogs I did not realize the correct way to serve coney dogs was with mustard and now I see that that's the only way to go! (Minor correction - I think you meant 4 hot dog buns not 1.) Read More

I have missed these. I got a stash of sauce from one of the Detroit chains and used that instead of canned. These were a big hit during the Tiger game. Since I no longer eat hot dogs making these at home with veggie dogs(I know I know) is the only way I can enjoy them. Everyone else still has "real" hot dogs and enjoys these here as much as at the restaurant. Read More
