    And everyone else of course....
    Here's a recipe that I took off the net.

    Coney Dogs for a Crowd
    makes about 32 - 40

    2 LB ground beef
    2 celery ribs
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1/4 C packed brown sugar
    1/4 C cornstarch
    1 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp pepper
    1 (32 oz) bottle ketchup
    2 C tomato juice
    4 pkgs hot dogs
    32- 40 hot dog buns

    In large saucepan cook beef, celery and onion until meat is no longer pink ; drain.

    Combine the brown sugar, cornstarch and salt ang pepper; stir into the beef mixture. Add ketchup and tomato juice. bring to a boil and boil for 2 minutes. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 15-20 minutes.

    prepare hot dogs

    serve about 1/4 cup sauce on each hot dog.

    I usually just doctor up a can of chili w/o beans. I'll have to try this -- cut down a bit, since much as I love them, I can't eat THAT MANY. ;)

    Chili Dogs and Coney Dogs are not quite the same thing Suzanne. I find Coney Dogs more to my liking. They tend to be a little on the sweeter side, with more of a "Sloppy Joe" type topping as opposed to the runny, flavorless chili (usually with beans) that you get on a typical Chili Dog. I always make Coney Sauce, and usually make it in huge batches that I freeze so that when I get a Coney Dog craving, I can just pop some in the nuke.

    I knew they're not the same -- but I never would have thought of Sloppy Joe (probably because I've never had it :blush: ). If I can find some non-Hormel SJ, I'll try playing with it. Thanks for the tip.
