The Detroit Coney Dog is historic, classic, and smacks you with awesome flavor. A great hot dog with a beanless chili and topped with onions and mustard. Enough to make my mouth water!



For Sauce:

For Dogs:


  1. Add suet, beef, and heart to skillet and brown
  2. Once browned, add water, garlic salt, chili powder, cumin, and paprika
  3. Allow to simmer for 30 minutes. Add water when needed to keep from going dry
  4. While simmering, crush crackers to a fairly fine consistency with a rolling pin or in a food processor.
  5. Grill hot dogs or pan fry with just a little water at the bottom
  6. Once done simmering, mix cracker in coney sauce
  7. Put hot dog in bun, top with Coney Sauce, mustard, and onions
