All the Way Hot Dogs and Taylor Ham Update

Okay, I promised to tell you all about All the Way Dogs and Taylor Ham. For those of you reading my blog out there, I’m sure you just can’t wait to hear what they are! The BBQ was fun and we got to meet some more people. We hope to see them again before too long. All the Way Hot Dogs are simply hot dogs with mustard, chili sauce and onions. The kind of chili sauce you use makes a world of difference. Whatever kind Kim used was really good, so I’ll have to ask her if she made it herself or bought it somewhere. I remember as a kid growing up in Hyde Park there was a place called Texas Lunch that had the best hot dogs in all the world. My Mom has been back to eat there, but says it’s not as good as it was back in the 60s. She said they’ve changed the sauce. See, it’s all in the chili sauce. They also have restaurants here called Texas Wieners which I think are similar. We need to check those out. Hot dogs are really a big deal here. But I wonder how “Texas” style hot dogs came into being in New Jersey and New York??

Taylor Ham is more of an enigma. The best I can come up with is it’s something like Canadian Bacon. It comes in a roll that you slice and it’s made from ham. I was wrong in calling it Hamburger Plate, as they are called Hamburger Combos when you add a slice of Taylor Ham on top of your hamburger. Very tasty! They tell us that a real New Jersey breakfast is a slice of Taylor ham topped with cheese on a hard roll. Yum! I bet it’s good! For those of you wanting a better description of Taylor ham, here is the Wikipedia excerpt:

I’ve never had rhododendrons before! Aren’t they gorgeous? They are just now starting to bloom. We have a red one too, but it’s not quite out yet.
