In this Oct. 9, 2013, photo, customers enjoy their meal at Doug Sohn’s Hot Doug’s restaurant on the northwest side of Chicago, at what has been called “The Sausage Superstore and Encased Meat Emporium.” Sohn’s hot dog eatery offers such creations as, _ smoked and spicy alligator sausage with crayfish etoufee mayonnaise and smoked blue cheese drizzled with honey, _ apple, pear and port wine elk sausage with cherry-apricot mustard, double creme brie cheese and pate de campagne, and _ red mole turkey sausage with chipotle dijonnaise, queso asadero and fried tortillas. Sohn has a rotating stockpile of about 100 recipes that he’s created and gets his meats from a dozen different sausage makers. He says he knew he hit it big when the sausage companies started coming to him. (AP Photo/M. Spencer Green)
