I was raised in Dothan too - I don't remember Ed's - but have the recipe for the hot dog chili at Nip & Ernies - maybe similar. 1 pound hamburger - 1/2 cup water - 3 T chili powder - salt, pepper, garlic salt to taste. Cook all together in a saucepan - mixing as it cooks (yes, raw hamburger and water - weird - but it works!). That was the recipe - I add some Worchestershire sauce, about 1/2 t of dry mustard, and a little catsup to make it like the hot dog chili I remember. You will love this!
and just how is this chili?

While serving in the Army at Fort Rucker, AL,
during the early 1970's, I worked as an Air Traffic Controller near Headland. I remember Ed's Place fondly. Us GI's from the stagefield ate there almost daily, and in my opinion - Ed had the absolute world's best hotdogs! The iced tea was the best also. Everything about that hot dog was perfect, up to and including the A&B Louisiana Hot Sauce. I'm 60 years old now, and I've never ate hotdogs that good before or since. I could go for a half dozen right now.

My mother worked for Mr. Ed in the 50's before she married my daddy and she always told me that Ed would make the chili at home and bring it to the restaurant. All I know, is that it was the BEST ever!

Try out Fred's BBQ in Headland, AL. Their recipe is pretty darn close to Ed's.

I know the chili dogs at Fred's BBQ in Headland are as close to the old Ed's chili dogs as any I have ever found. The people that own it have lived in Headland all of their lives and all knew Ed and his son Tom very well.

Does it really matter that he was queer? Nothing to do with the chili....

I tried this recipe yesterday and in my opinion it calls for entirely too much chili powder. I am going to try it again soon but will only use 1T of chili, maybe less.
