Hot Dog Vendor Radio show was a hit last night.
First, I want to thank you, those that join the chat room, those that listen in and those that share the links and this blog with other vendors. The show last night was fantastic, Rob and I covered the most asked questions for those just getting started or thinking about joining the ranks as a hot dog vendor. I have included a link here for your convenience. Even if you have heard the show, Rob and I actually recorded another hour covering topics that we didn't get done during the main show. Listen to it all here, including the After Show Show.

Mark from over at Dixon Dawgs was kind enough to share this chili that he's using. For those of you, like me, that can only offer vegetarian chili, due to state codes. Mark writes…
