Hillbilly Hot Dogs

Kim Biegacki


I just recently spent some time with family from my Grandpa Campbell’s side in Ansted, WVA. My cousin Debbie owns a store called Chimney Corner USA and while browing the store I was very excited to find some Chow Chow. What is Chow, Chow? It is a pickled relish made with cabbage & veggies and can be hot, sweet, spicy or mild. Now, I was on the search for Chow Chow for over a year but couldn’t find any. So, I was excited with my find. My cousin told me that they eat it on top of pinto beans with a side of homemade cornbread. I wanted to try the beans and the chow chow together so I tried it on a hot dog; hence, the name Hillbilly Hotdogs. It was wonderful! Love the Chow Chow!!!
