    EdsGirlAngie's Note:

    This is reportedly the recipe for the topping used on the famous Aiken, SC City Billiards "pool hall hot dogs", with a minor adjustment made on my part regarding the amount of onions used (original recipe states "4 medium onions"). It's a sweet and tangy mixture; I like it topped with lots of shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese. (I've made this with ground turkey and it tastes pretty fine, too!) This makes enough topping for about 4 hot dogs.

      My grandmother used to make hot dog chili very similar to this when we visited her. I never got her recipe but now I wish that I had. This tastes very similar though and is very good.

      I am not familiar with Aiken Pool Hall hot dogs, but I wanted to try this recipe anyway. I am very familiar with A & W chili dogs, being from Ohio, so I was hoping for something similar, but with a southern twang. I was not disappointed with this sauce. We used Ballpark all beef jumbo dogs and served it on a Ciabatta roll instead of a hot dog bun. I felt it held more sauce since Ciabatta is porous. It was yummy! I would do these again. Thanks for posting!
