Classic Dogs with Homemade Chili

Another favorite of mine to grill is the classic hot dog. Any old dog will do but be sure to buy a good quality dog, check the meat content and especially the amount of sodium. Ain't nothing worse that a salty dog.
But what I like most about my dogs is the homemade chili sauce. Make it up a day ahead, heat it up and pile it on your dogs.
I like to top it off with cheese, but that's just me.

Homemade Chili for Dogs

1 tablespoon canola oil
1 large onion -diced
2 garlic cloves -minced
1 pound lean ground beef
2 cups ketchup
1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
2 tablespoons brown mustard
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

In a medium saucepan brown beef in oil stirring and chopping until it is fine in texture and fully cooked without liquid. Remove any oil with a paper towel. Mix in the onion and garlic on medium low heat and stir about 5 minutes. Stir in the rest of the ingredients, bring to a low simmer and then cook on low about 15 minutes.
