Interesting Hot Dog Recipe along the Appalachian Trail

We encountered an interesting hot dog recipe at lunch in Erwin, TN at one of our stops along the Appalachian Trail.

Occasionally, the Dari Ace diner serves up an extreme (and very tasty) hot dog special. The “Russell Tussell” was named after a fella who came in requesting a hot dog on a bun with ketchup, mustard, onions, slaw, chopped tomato, cheese, sliced bacon, and topped with a fried chicken tender. We encountered this hot dog backpacking through Erwin, TN on one of our off-trail stops along the Appalachian Trail.
