Can't stand to read a recipe that the person writing it thinks they have something sooo great! This hotdog recipe does not sound good at all and...I think you should have beeb born in New Jersey to make any kind of statement at all abut the food found here. In other words, you grew up in NJ and understand the basic "good" foods we have here!!

Having lived in NJ, I don't recognize this hot dog. Wherever you live in the USA, this will not be on your menu. Weird and unappetizing. The only sin that was not committed is putting ketchup on your hot dog.

Sorry, but putting a covered pan of stuff on a grill doesn't constitute grilling. That's baking or roasting. There is no exposure to the smoke and carbon dioxide that gives a grilled flavor to the food. You'd get the same result putting these veggies in a regular roasting pan and sticking them in the oven while getting your charcoal ready to grill the franks, reducing hassle, cooking time, exposure to aluminum picked up in the food when it reacts with acids in the veggies, and the expense of the disposable roasting pans. If you really wanted grilled veggies, there are perforated pans specially for that purpose that do impart grilled flavor into the food. A good cook is someone who thinks their way through food prep to make the most of what they have, not someone who blindly follows an idea or tradition without regard for the various aspects of the outcome. This recipe is a good starting point, needing much adjusting per the suggestions of the New Jersey natives who weighed in and a little common sense.

Being from Vailsburg, Newark, NJ where the *Italian Hot Dog* originated, the only thing that is correct is the mixture of peppers, onions and potatoes. The preparation in this recipe isn't even close. Also, hot dog buns are never used... Pizza bread is used. Regular hot dog buns would fall apart. This recipe should not be called Jersey-style... not even close....

Reminds me of ***e Dee's in Newark. You can't get pizza bread in S. Jersey, so I use good Italian rolls. These are the best.
