One of my biggest cravings from Provo, UT is a polish hot dog with special sauce from J Dawgs. It's a travesty that the nearest J Dawgs is like 1500 miles away. I have seen a number of recipes on Pinterest for a copycat version of J Dawg's special sauce. I finally decided to try one that seemed like it would be close. It was more than close, it was dead on and deeeelicious.
Instead of just buying regular old weiners, I bought polish hot dogs. And I bought the softest looking hot dog buns I could find. Luckily, this is Chicago, and these people love their hot dogs. They had the biggest assortment of hot dog buns I've ever seen.
