Blogroll: Texas Weiners at SeriousEats, a History and Interactive Map

August 8, 2009

texasweinersI completely missed this gem of a post on SeriousEats back in July, all about “Texas Weiners”. Texas Weiners are a genre of hot dog found not in Texas, but in New Jersey and parts of Pennsylvania, and it was created by Greek immigrants.

We’ve covered Texas Weiners on our posts about Goffle Grill and Johnny and Hanges. I’ve also created my own recipe for hot dog chili similar to Texas Weiner sauce called “Cleveland Indians Chili”, with a smoked chili bite.

Be sure to visit the SeriousEats site where they’ve been doing an entire series on regionally specialized hot dogs, including The Philly Combo, Tijuana Dogs, and the Flo’s Dog from Maine the Puka dog from Hawaii and the Slaw Dog from the Southern US.
