Coney Dog's

All across America you'll find Coney dog stands serving up hot dogs with coney sauce which is a chili like topping said to be created by a Greek guy in Detroit back in the day. Eventually the love for this style of dog spread out of Michigan and throughout the country. Everybody that loves coney dogs has a secret sauce recipe or a place thy go to that claims the same. Well in my research I found that in Flint, MI they use ground beef hearts and kidneys in the blend to give that regions coney's their unique flavor. I also read somewhere that you have to use shredded up cheap hot dogs when making the sauce. So one day I tried an impromptu recipe and was damn pleased with the results.

The blended Oscar Mayer hot dogs gave it an edge

chibbqking's Coney Sauce

-1/2 cup of chili powder
-1/4 cup cumin
-1/4 cup smoked paprika
-1/4 cup garlic powder
-4 Oscar Meyer hot dogs blended up like in the pic above
-2 to 3 pounds ground beef
-2 lg. onions sliced very fine or put thru a grater
-1 tablespoon vinegar
-1 eight ounce can tomato paste
- 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
-1 tablespoon Yellow mustard
-1/2 cup of chicken stock

Coney sauce should be near dry and not too soupy

Dogs on the griddle...cookin' in butter

Coney's traditionally come w/o cheese but I like mine with

-jalapenos stuffed with cream cheese and wrapped in bacon

Ready for da smoker

One of the easiest and tastiest treats out there. Simply take a bunch of jalapenos and slice off the top part and remove the insides. Take your favorite BBQ rub and mix a tablespoon or two into some cream cheese and then stuff it in the jalapeno. Wrap the pepper in bacon and sprinkle some rub on it and smoke them in a smoker until the bacon is crisp.

'Sconnie Sliders
-a chibbqking tribute to WI & it's food

This years recipes all have a common bond and that's that they are all pretty simple to make. A Sconnie slider is simply Wisconsin beef summer sausage sliced into coins and grilled on both sides for a few minutes per. You then take them and toss the chips in your favorite BBQ sauce and serve them on warm dinner rolls. Simple and succulent. I like the combo of the charred beef chips and Open Pit BBQ sauce.

What you'll need along with some dinner rolls and BBQ sauce

Step 1) Grill

Step 2) Toss in BBQ sauce

Step 3) Place beef chips in warm rolls and eat

chibbqking Buffalo Chix Sliders
-Buffalo wings on a bun minus the bones

I came up with this one when I had all the ingredients needed to make them and the idea just came to mind. To keep this recipe real simple, just buy a rotisserie chicken from your local grocer and remove the skin and shred the meat off and reserve it for the sandwiches.

Ingredients (serves 6-8)

- 1 rotisserie chicken, shredded apart into pieces
- 1 bottle of Franks buffalo sauce
- 1 jar of Bleau cheese dressing
- 1 stick of butter
- stalk of celery, chopped into small pieces
- 1 package dinner rolls (as many rolls as sandwiches wanted)

Bleu cheese and celery ready to go

Shredded cooked chicken is what you need to make the sammy's

Mix butter and buffalo sauce and simmer until heated thru

Build your buffalo chicken slider as shown above

chibbqking Piggie Wings
-Chix Tenders wrapped in bacon

Need I explain any further?


-package of raw chicken tenders
-package of bacon
-your favorite BBQ rub and some brown sugar
-Ranch dressing

1) Remove tenders from package and rinse under water and pat dry. Sprinkle your favorite rub over the tenders then wrap it fully in bacon (like that seen in the pic below) insert a toothpick to keep it wrapped and then sprinkle the bacon with brown sugar.

2) Grill wings until the bacon is crisp on the outside but be careful to watch for flareups. Serve with ranch dressing.

3) Enjoy!

KingT's Garlic BBQ Beer Wings

What you'll need for G-B-BBQ wings (plus wings and BBQ sauce)

Note: Old Bay, Chicken Rub or any other rub you like will work.

1) Take everything seen above and marinate wings for at least 24 hours.

Note: there is no exact recipe, just use 3 tablespoons of each the rub and chopped garlic and the entire bottle of your beer of choice.

2) Drain the garlic-beer liquid and pat wings dry. Grill wings until done. Take them off grill and toss in your favorite BBQ sauce (make sure sauce is at room temp or warm).

3) Enjoy!

Grilled Italian Sausage Mostacholi with roasted peppers
-a chibbqking original recipe


2 pound's Italian sausage (grilled)
2 green bell peppers (roasted on grill and peeled)
1 large onion, chopped
6-8 cups spaghetti sauce (you can doctor up bottled stuff if you like)
1 – 16 ounce package mostacholi
4 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated


1) Cook the sausage on the grill, while sausage is grilling roast your green peppers. Once done take sausage off and set aside and place your pepper sin a brown paper bag and wrap it up so no air gets out.

2) If using homemade red sauce, simply take the chopped onion and saute it and then dump your sauce in the pot and let it simmer. If using bottled or jarred sauce then I would doctor it up with sauteed onions, garlic and peppers etc...

3) Cook the pasta according to the packages instructions. While pasta is cooking slice the sausage into single pieces. When finished rip off the skin of the roasted peppers and remove the insides and dice them up into pieces.

Grilled Hot Sausage from Nottoli on Harlem works great

4) Put small amount of sauce into the bottom of pan and spread it around. Layer some of the pasta over the sauce and add half of the sliced sausage and chopped peppers and add 2 cups of the mozzarella cheese and 2 cups of sauce. Repeat the layer once more and top with Parmesan cheese.

5) Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes.

The grilled sausage and roasted green peppers add plenty of flavor

Super Steak Kebabs

One of my favorite things to grill are steak kabob's. If you get the right pieces of meat for them and have a good marinade and can let them sit in it for 24+ hours they always taste great. Here is a marinade I came up with when I was experimenting with them a couple months back. I might have to make these at my party this year.

Super Steak Marinade

-1 cup vegetable oil
-1/3 cup light soy sauce
-1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
-1/3 cup red wine vinegar
- the juice from a lemon
- one small chopped onion
- 3 tablespoons of garlic
- 1 tablespoon of Greek Oregano
- salt and pepper

Combine the ingredients and marinate meat for at least 24 hours. Grill with peppers and onions on skewers over live charcoal.

Blackened chicken alfredo pasta

-My ode to the Saints

You know many people out there are throwing New Orleans/Cajun themed super bowl parties this year. Here is an easy recipe for a blackened chicken alfredo. Easy to make and easy to make alot of. Go Saints. Recipes for this dish easy and crowd pleasing are all over the 'net. I like to use bowtie pasta in mine.

Irish-Mexican Nacho's
-a chibbqking original

You might remember these from a previous post. Irish-Mexican nachos is an ultimate gameday grub dish and sure to be a crowd pleaser. Many people end up at the article when searching google for "Irish Mexican nachos" or "potato nachos" and so on. Since its post back in March of '09 its gotten over 2,500 views mostly from google search. Take a look at the recipe for these HERE.

KingT's Tex-Mex Chili (The Champ is Here)

If you went to the Time Out Chicago chili cookoff this year, you didn't see me there. No worries though because I am still tweaking what will become my signature recipe and you might even catch me down south in Murphysboro, IL at the 17th street bar and grill's annual chili cookoff at the end of February.

Big Ole Bowl of Chili

I'm tweaking a little bit here and there and figuring out the perfect portion amounts but I am confident you will enjoy my "sharing" recipe, which is about as much as I'll share of it. This isn't a recipe for a small group of people or someone looking for a quick batch of chili, you need to make it in a big pot due to the amount of ingredients added in and its a two day process. You will be rewarded should you have at it.

KingT's Tex-Mex Chili

chili cheese fries

Since the chili recipe above calls for alot to be made, you gotta have some stuff to do up with the leftovers. If you like chili cheese dogs, this chili makes a mean one. Here are a couple more ideas you can use the chili for. You can take some fries, fresh or frozen, and top them with the chili and shredded cheddar and add chopped onions on top for some fine chili cheese fries.

You can also use the chili as a filling for quesadillas, just add chihuahua cheese and some peppers.

Step 1) fill her then grill her...

...and its done

White Trash Tacos

Everyone knows how to make white trash tacos. Just follow the instructions on the taco seasoning mix and plop the ground beef on a tortilla and top with your favorite toppings. I like to get real trashy and use onions rings as a topping on mine.

Sunday Neckbone Gravy (Makes 16 Cups)

If you want to go all out this Super Sunday then you need to do it like all Italian families do every Sunday. Sunday red gravy is a tradition in many families and it starts first thing in the morning. I once read a recipe from Esquire that was truly super and decided to try it immediately. Over time I played around with it and then settled on this recipe for a great batch of marinara that wont cost you more than $20 to make.

Simmered neckbones out of the pot

Ingredients for Sauce

About ½ cup olive oil
6-8 pounds pork neckbones
4 lbs your favorite meatballs
2 medium Spanish onions, finely chopped
8 garlic cloves, minced
1 12-oz can tomato paste
2 2 oz containers of anchovies (mashed in oil)
5 28-oz cans whole peeled tomatoes (preferably San Marzano) with juices, crushed by hand until no whole tomatoes remain
3 bay leaves
Hefty pinch sugar
Salt to taste (about 2 to 3 tsp)

Ingredients for Meatballs

4 lbs meatloaf mixture (beef, pork, veal)
12 slices white bread, broken into small 1/2 inch pieces (or you can use rolls or any stale bread you have and want to use up)
4 eggs, slightly beaten
garlic powder to taste
Italian seasoning to taste
parsley flakes to taste
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
salt & pepper
olive oil or vegetable oil (for frying)

Instructions for Meatballs

~Mix all ingredients gently in a large bowl until well combined.

~Roll meatballs 1 1/2- 1 3/4" in diameter.

~Heat about 1/4" of oil over medium heat in a large frying pan.

~Fry meatballs in oil, rolling frequently, until evenly browned and juices run clear.

~Set meatballs aside to drop in sauce after its made.

Shredded neckbone meat

Instructions for Sauce

~Coat cooking surface of large heavy-bottomed stockpot (at least 12 qts — we're talking about a huge pot) with olive oil, place over medium-low heat, and working a few at a time brown the neckbones on all sides and leave them in the pot. (Add more olive oil as needed.)

~Add onions to pork bones and slowly brown, stirring occasionally, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add garlic and lightly brown, stirring occasionally, 3 to 5 minutes. Add mashed anchovies and stir occasionally.

~Add tomato paste and stir to coat onions, anchovies and pork bones. Slowly cook until paste begins to thicken and turn deep reddish brown, about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes, bay leaves, and sugar. Stir well, making sure you get down to the bottom, and bring to a low boil.

~Lower heat and simmer uncovered until sauce begins to thicken. After three hours, add meatballs. Continue to simmer until a layer of oil forms on top, about another hour. Season to taste with salt.

~Use a slotted spoon to transfer meat to serving platter. Shred off the meat of the neckbones and discard the bones. Remove the meat back to the pot. Use sauce in your favorite pasta.

Super Sunday Gravy smothered over meatballs

While my preseason prediction of a Chargers-Saints Super Bowl fell just short, I still hit on the Saints in the NFC and New Orleans is still my favorite US city outside Chicago. Who Dat? Saints 33 Colts 30. See y'all next week.
