Texas Traditions in Modern Cooking: Cowtown Dogs’ Culinary Journey

At Cowtown Dogs, we take pride in blending traditional Texas cooking with modern culinary trends. Our journey is a story of flavors, innovation, and a deep-rooted love for the Lone Star State’s culinary heritage. Our claim to fame? The Original Texas Style Hot Dog – a creation that won us the title of “Best Of Dallas 2022”. Let’s dive into how we fuse Texas traditions into our hot dogs.

Euro Classic® Brioche Bun

We begin with the Euro Classic® brioche bun. This isn’t just any bread; it’s a game-changer. Its soft, rich texture sets the stage for what’s to come. This key ingredient is a nod to our belief that great dishes start with great foundations, much like the sturdy barns and homes built by Texas settlers.

Marinated Jalapeños

Next, we bring the heat with olive oil-marinated jalapeño peppers, grilled to perfection. This step encapsulates the Texas spirit – bold and unapologetic. Jalapeños are a staple in Texan cooking, representing the state’s love for spice and flavors that pack a punch.

All-Beef Hickory Smoked Hotdog

At the heart of our hot dog is the premium, all-beef, hickory-smoked hot dog. Smoking meats is a time-honored Texas tradition, harking back to the days of cattle ranching and outdoor cooking. This method imparts a depth of flavor that’s quintessentially Texan.

Raye’s® Stone Ground Yellow Mustard

Then comes Raye’s® Stone Ground Yellow Mustard, a condiment steeped in history. Made in the last mill in the U.S. that still grinds mustard seeds the traditional way, this mustard connects us to the past. It’s a tribute to the artisans and craftsmen who have shaped Texas’s culinary landscape.

Sloppy Eddie Chili

Our Sloppy Eddie chili is where tradition meets innovation. It’s a cross between a sloppy joe and chili, named after the entrepreneur Eddie Salazar. This signature chili is our way of adding a modern twist to Texas chili – a staple in Texan cuisine known for its robust flavors and hearty nature.

Texas Style Toppings

Finally, the crowning glory: our Texas-style toppings. Choose between Dublin Sweet Onions, offering a tangy sweetness, or the Hot ‘n Spicy Onion Pepper Mix for those who love a spicy kick. These toppings are a homage to Texas’s agricultural bounty, showcasing local produce and flavors.

Blending Traditions with Trends

At Cowtown Dogs, our philosophy is simple: honor Texas traditions while embracing modern culinary trends. We believe that the best flavors come from a deep understanding of the past, combined with a willingness to innovate. Our hot dogs are more than just a meal; they’re an experience that takes you on a journey through Texas’s culinary history.

Why Cowtown Dogs?

Why do we do what we do? It’s all about bringing people together through food. Texas has a rich tradition of community and hospitality, and we aim to embody that spirit. Our hot dogs aren’t just food; they’re a celebration of Texas’s diverse culinary heritage.

Cowtown Dogs stands at the intersection of tradition and modernity. Our Original Texas Style Hot Dog is a testament to our commitment to preserving Texas cooking methods and flavors while introducing new ideas and tastes.
