Here is a tip when making coney dogs. One of the attributes of a great coney dog is the consistency of the coney sauce. It should contain NO lumps of meat. To do this, soak the ground beef in cold water for about 30 minutes. Drain and then brown. There will be some moisture but it will slowly be cooked off.

We did this at our A&W Root Beer stands and I understand that is how Taco Bell gets their taco meat so smooth.
