Debate over "Coneys" vs. "Chili Dogs"
Something I've come to realize when I moved up here to MI from OK.

I grew up eating "Chili Dogs", which have some sort of chili on them (IMHO, the best is Wolf Brand Chili), with optional diced onions, mustard, cheese, etc.

Up here, there are "Coneys", which have "Coney Sauce", and served with the optional diced onions, mustard, etc.

The only problem is, "Coney Sauce" ain't "Chili", at least in my book! Is there a difference? And, do any of you have a recipe for "Coney Sauce"?

Well the Coney is from Coney Island NY, and Nathans are the most famous. Here is the NY NJ area, Nathans serves their dogs with chili w/ beans. Quite good. So I have no Idea what MI does with their Coneys. Chili and dogs are quite regional, so it is no surprise that tastes and ingredients change. Hope a native MIer speaks up about the MI Coney.

Basically, "coney sauce" is the same thing as "hot dog chili sauce". The main difference between chili and chili sauce is that in the sauce the meat is ground fine and the sauce is thinner than a bowl of red. Of course, the recipe for coney sauce is like the recipe for chili - there are a bunch of different ones! http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=coney+sauce
