I think you have to be from Cincinnati to define a Coney.

Apparently a coney is a hotdog with meat sauce and stuff on it. I had
always assumed a coney would be a hotdog with onions in sauce on it.

Color me picky, but I'm not a fan of chili dogs, even though I like hot dogs and I like chili. Something about topping a piece of meat with more meat just doesn't work for me. When I eat a hot dog I like it with good saurkraut and dark mustard. And I suspect if I went to Coney Island (which is in New York, so why are people from Ohio or Michigan trying to define it?) that's probably what I'd be eating.

Ok so ... what exactly is a "white hot" anyway?

I thought this was mentioned somewhere, must be the ninja cats purposely and deliberately deleting messages. 

A white hot is a pork (the other white meat) hot dog, different spices so it isn't Italian sausage.  If you ever have your cheese steak day, I will be sure to bring some.   If you go to Syracuse there is a famous hot dog stand and they serve coneys aka white hots.  Been around for almost 100 years. (Although the family no longer owns it and a lot of things have changed... for the worse)

I will agree, I don't want chili on a hot dog.  Don't get it.  Sauerkraut...okay, but would rather not.  I actually like both yellow mustard and spice brown mustard on a hot dog, a line on each side of the bun.  As you chew you get a spice smooth mix that is good.  My mother used to partially slice the hot dog down the center, fill it with cheddar cheese, wrap that in bacon and bake them.  I liked that as a child, as an adult not so much.  Nitrate and sodium overdose.

I do like blue cheese on the bottom of the bun, the hot dog on top and the above mentioned yellow/brown mustard thing.  That is really good.

A) Hot dogs are just transport devices to get mustard into your mouth.  If you ate mustard by itself people would think that is wrong.  Put it on leftover, low end meats, fillers, preservatives and nitrates and people find eating mustard acceptable. 

B) A friend of mine was a judge for the Nathan's hot dog eating contest this year. He watched Nela Zisser.

In germany, mustard is mandatory to accompany almost any Wurst, but Currywurst. The latter is drowned in some ketchupy tomatoe sauce which is not ketchup, and there is Curry on it.

There is Weißwurst, a white wurst, as the name indicates, which you eat with sweet mustard. It looks like cat fetus and tastes worse. Even if you add the sweet mustard.

There is almost no hotdog culture in germany, but in danmark, where we went on holiday, it is the shit. You can rarely get a decent dish of french fries there, but hot dogs are everywhere.

Obviously you didn't want to get involved in the #YellowLinesMatter and #BrownLinesMatter flame wars which are always raging in the hot dog eating community.

The hot dog / cheese / bacon combo is interesting, particularly in that your mother baked them. My mother did something similar: a split-open hot dog, filled with mashed potatoes, topped with cheese and then cooked again in the broiler. I had forgotten about that until you brought up your mother's variety.

best vehicle for mustard is hot pretzels #phillyfoodsmatter

That's a good one. Speaking of which, why do the mall type pretzel places (Pretzel Time, Pretzel Gourmet, Auntie Anne's, etc) insist on drenching their pretzels in butter? It just makes them greasy, and makes you feel sick after eating them. I'd rather have them "dry" with a good schmear of dark mustard.

Pro tip, it probably isn't real butter.

Probably true ... one more reason to ask them to leave it off.

Because otherwise they hwave to do more work to make certain that at their cooked exactly correctly.

Perhaps, but when I get pretzels from those places and order them sans butter, they're still pretty good. (Of course, I tend to be really hungry at those times so maybe that's it.)

In other news, I'm going all non-foodie on my coffee starting this week.
Sometimes you've got to take a few steps back and re-assess the situation in front of you (which I do frequently because I am so objectively introspective).
I started running K-Cups a few years ago because I'm the only one in my house who drinks coffee, and all I really needed was a single cup in the morning before I went to work. Now that I'm working from home, I'm drinking the equivalent of a pot, so I might as well *make* a pot.

But I don't really feel like getting into the whole "grind every pot fresh" thing again. I bought ground coffee. So ghetto! It will go well with my computer.

That sounds like what I do. You now work closer to where you make coffee.

And suddenly I'm a fan of iced coffee.  Never drank the stuff before.  This summer has been so hot, I've been in more than a few situations where a mug of hot java just wouldn't work.  It's kind of funny how hot coffee that has gone cold isn't very appetizing, but really cold coffee is good.  I don't get it.

Oh, and ... if I am buying a cup on the road instead of making it myself ... dunkin donuts = good , starbucks = blah.  DD ices any brew they have available on-demand for you.  Starbucks has some pre-made concoction that probably has corn syrup in it.

Woa Woa woa, settle down my trumpet friend.  Making hot coffee and putting it over ice is NOT iced coffee.  Boo Boo Boo.

Because you are a fan of doing things properly, I will give you a hint.  DD offers a new cold brew, and that is close to how it should be done.  

To make iced coffee properly, (there are recipes on the internet) Get a container, pour in 1/3 cup of ground coffee, mix it with a cup and a half of water and let it sit overnight. (8-12 hours)  Shake it a few times if you must.  Strain in the morning, and you can keep it in the refrigerator until ready to drink.

This is very strong, but it doesn't get diluted when the ice melts.  Add your creme and sugar if you must.

I don't know how to play the trumpet. Guitar, recorder, flute, keyboard, drums, but I'm not proficient in any brass instruments.

From a quick search of the Internet it appears that you are correct about this "cold brew" thing. People seem to be referring to the product of the cold brew process as an "extract" which implies that it will withstand dilution.
That's a good thing.

On the other hand, I am now confused, because everything I know about the chemical process of coffee brewing says that it requires heat.

If the point of brewing is to infuse the liquid with the tasty-bits in the coffee, perhaps leaving the *ground* coffee in water for a very long period of time (like overnight) helps accomplish slowly what heat would accomplish with greater speed.

At least, it makes a kind of sense to me. The flavor will leach into the water cold or hot, just depends on how quickly you want it.

Have you tried cold brew ice coffee and did you like it better?
