I've never eaten a Chicago-style hot dog before. Furthermore I had no idea what constituted a Chicago-style hot dog. For example, I was surprised to find "sports peppers" (a Chicago-style hot dog requirement) at World Market. Had never heard of sports peppers before! Celery salt on a hot dog? New to me! You'll notice I garnished loose poppy seeds on the finished product, too. There was no way I'd find hot dog buns with poppy seeds in our neck of the woods. Online research helped and a special word of thanks to! What a fun Taco Tuesday that was!
