Being from Chicago, if anyone would make the recipe as you wrote it, they would be excommunicated or worse! Nathan's Hot Dogs wouldn't be used, instead we use Vienna All Beef Hot Dogs which are steamed or even boiled but never grilled. two strips of dill pickle, 2 wedges of tomato, diced onion, neon green pickle relish, celery salt, mustard only and 2 - 4 Sport Peppers on a poppy seed bun. The recipe for the buns are guarded. I know an ex-Chicagoan that opened a Chicago Style Hot Dog Stand in the South and actually brought a bakery packages of the famous Poppy seed buns so they could figure out how to clone it.

This is not a Chicago Hot dog. Never grilled, steamed, poppy seed bun, steamed, neon relish, two tomato slices, mustard, onion and of course, celery salt. Oh, a pickle slice and two sport peppers. NEVER KETCHUP! (It is considered bad manners and harmful to your taste buds to put ketchup on your hotdog within the city limits of Chicago!!)

This is NOT the classic Chicago hot dog--I have lived in Chicago and the south suburbs my entire life, and never have I seen celery leaves on a Chicago dog. This recipe is missing celery salt sprinkled on top of all the vegetables...also the bun should be poppy-seed if available. Sport peppers are optional. Mmmmmm....I think I know what's for dinner tonight!
