Today's Case

Coney Sauce, Chili Dogs

It's been slow lately, so I spent some time checking message boards for recipes previously requested. I found a few Coney sauce, Texas hots, chili dogs sauce recipes that I didn't have. No provenance, but they claim to be either the actual recipe or a copycat.

Angelo's Coney Island - Flint Michigan

Genie's Weenies - Hamtramck, Michigan - Chili Mix

Johnnie's Lunch - Jamestown, NY

For the other Coney chili sauce recipes that I have, see: Chili Dogs, Coneys, Texas Hots
