the Ingredients

20171005164734 Chicago Style Hot Dogs 960
  • 2 medium tomatoes, cut crosswise into 6-millimeter slices
  • 8 best-quality all-beef hot dogs with natural casings (slightly longer than the buns)
  • 8 poppy seed hot dog buns, split
  • 16 pickled sport peppers
  • 2 dill pickles, cut lengthwise into spears
  • ½ cup finely chopped white onion, rinsed in a fine-mesh strainer under cold water
  • ½ cup sweet pickle relish, preferably emerald green Chicago-style relish
  • Yellow mustard
  • Celery salt


  • 01 Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat (180º to 230ºC).  
  • 02 Cut each tomato slice in half to make half-moons. Cut a few well-spaced diagonal shallow slashes crosswise along one side of each hot dog.
  • 03 Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the hot dogs over direct medium heat, with the lid closed, until lightly marked on the outside and hot all the way to the center, 4 to 5 minutes, turning occasionally. Remove from the grill.
  • 04 Place a hot dog in each bun and add two tomato half-moons, two sport peppers, one pickle spear, some onion, and a spoonful of relish. Add mustard and finish with a pinch of celery salt. Serve warm.
