Baseball's Opening Day is a holiday in my world. On paternity leave, I was home with my wife and kids for Opening Day 2015. We made it out of the house around 11:15am to pickup the ingredients for a Chicago Dog.
I'm not a fan of pickles, yellow mustard, or relish, but the combination on a Chicago Dog is out of this world good. I did leave off the sport peppers as I find they overwhelm the other flavors.
Online, many people said smoke the loin for 2-3 hours. A close friend, Shane, said 40 minutes. I was clueless. The internet is a wormhole of bad information and maybe Shane thought I was talking about a tenderloin.
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg
To finish off dinner, I topped a Hawaiian roll with Cabot Sharp Cheddar Cheese, smoked pork, and apple topping.
