Canton Arcade Market Coney Sauce

Recipe by Bone Man

I've never had it but I was told that the coneys at this now-gone Ohio hotspot were just tops. My mother-in-law had some sort of connection there and here's the recipe. Obviously, you may wish to halve the recipe (for 3 pounds of hot dogs). I hope it brings back pleasant memories if you ever went there.

I grew up in Canton, Oh..still do live in Canton area... and ate coneys at Dick's regularly when I worked in downtown Canton. The coneys are still served in the downtown area. Doubled this recipe but not the chili powder for a church function....people raved about the sauce. THANK YOU so much for sharing this marvelous recipe. YUM YUM!! What a treat!
