Janet Riley: Hi, I am Janet riley and I am President of the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council. You know New Yorkers and Chicagoans have a great rivalry on many levels, whether its baseball or hotdogs. They are passionate, in their view, that their city has the better hotdog. Today I am going to teach you how to make a New York Dog and a Chicago style Hot Dog and I am going to let you be the judge which is better.

You'll need; Sliced steamed onions, steamed buns, Deli style Yellow Mustard, all beef Hot Dogs, a steamed Poppy Seed Bun, bright cream relish, chopped raw onion, sport peppers, Dill pickles, fresh tomato slices, and a dash of Celery Salt and some people like a little Sauerkraut.

To make a New York Dog you need boiled Hot Dogs, they are often called Water Dogs so we're going to place some Hot Dogs in some boiling water that we've got here. New York Dogs also feature steamed onions. So we've sliced up some onions, we've got some water boiling in a double boiler and we are going to let those steam for a few minutes. I've moistened a paper towel, and I am just going to take one of my buns here and wrap it up and then I am going to put it in the microwave for about 10 seconds. So now we've got our nice steaming hot bun, and I am going to add a nice hot beef Hot Dog and then we're going to top it with some Mustard and then we'll add the onions that are freshly steamed. And there we go, a New York Hot Dog.

Now I am going to teach you how to make a classic Chicago Dog. Chicago Dogs have a rich history, traced all the back to the depression when very competitive vendors kept adding toppings to compete with the next guy. Eventually, a signature Chicago hotdog evolved, it's the standard today in the city and it has more toppings than any other Hot Dog in America.

Now we're going to start by steaming our Poppy Seed Bun, I've moistened the paper towel and we're just going to wrap one of these buns up and put it in the microwave for about 10 seconds. So now that we have our steamed bun I am going to add a nice grilled Chicago style all beef Hot Dog and then we're going to top it with some Yellow Mustard and then we're going to move to our chunky condiments like fresh chopped onion, some special Chicago style relish extra green, some sport peppers -- you got to have the sport peppers -- some tomato slices and sliced Dill Pickle spear and then, the final, the special ingredient, the celery salt -- and notice what's missing on here? Ketchup, in Chicago you never ever put ketchup on a Hot Dog. There you have it, the Chicago Hot Dog.

So now you can appreciate the rivalry between the New York Hot Dog and the Chicago style Hot Dog. So whichever you pick, whether it's the simple elegance of the New York Dog or the loaded Chicago style Dog, enjoy.
