    BTW I wasn't being rude. I can understand if you wanted a recipe for Italian Beef ( I make it all the time) or you wanted to know if there is a place in Knoxville where you could buy a poppy seed hot dog roll.

      I think a better question is why you would expect to find Chicago regional cuisine in the middle of KY or TN .. my recommendation is stick to the bbq or try a hot brown. Go with what is local ...

        My feelings exactly. I get a chuckle from some of the postings where people are looking for a dish typical of a particular part of the country somewhere else. ( Pierogies in South Carolina?
        Cuban food in Wisconsin?)

        That being said, there is a small stand that sells Chicago Style Hot Dogs near me in Mt. Dora FL ( a small town in the center of the state). it's a novelty for the locals and the relish is authentically fluorescent.

      I guess the question in many people's minds is WHY?
