Hot Dogs on the Grill

Hot Dogs Grilling

Hotdogs are as American as apple pie, baseball and football. They can be grilled, boiled, broiled, baked, steamed, stuffed, or eaten raw. But there is absolutely nothing that does a hot dog prouder than a searing hot grill.
Here are some dog-gone delicious ideas that are sure to get your dogs…and taste buds, fired up. And you can do it right on your grill

Preparation:

  • Start with excellent Hotdogs (There are many different kinds, beef, pork, turkey, all the above. You pick em.)
  • Light the grill and let it come up to medium heat. Let grill remain at medium heat for 5 minutes or so.
  • Prepare hotdog buns.

Condiment Ideas:

  • Mustard—golden, yellow, gray, searing, smooth, or seedy. Hot dogs love it.
  • Ketchup—the old standby.
  • Pickle relish—dill, sweet, however you like it.
  • Raw onions—green, white, yellow, or sweet, it’s all good!
  • Grilled onions—the only thing better than raw onions.
  • Grilled peppers—is there anything grilled peppers don’t taste good on?
  • Jalapenos—adds a little kick in the pants
  • Cheese—add a little, add a lot. Pepper jack is a nice change from cheddar or processed cheese, though processed cheese has a really nice melt to it.
  • Chili—this makes it a little harder to eat with your hands, but it is delicious. (forks are great!)
  • Barbecue sauce—adds to that smokey barbecue thing you have going on here.
  • Steak sauce—tired of ketchup? kick it up a notch.
  • Hot sauce—kick it up a couple more notches.
  • Sauerkraut—yes, it was nasty when you were a kid. Try it now!

Directions:

  1. Put your hotdogs on the preheated grill – perpendicular to the grate depending on how you want the char lines. (Do not put them parallel with the grids. They will tend to stick and you will have a mess getting them out between them.)
  2. Make sure they’re well-spaced, as you will need room to roll those puppies around on the grill.
  3. Keep your eye on the dogs. Don’t let them lay in one place too long.
  4. Roll the dogs every so often until the skins turn a deep reddish brown.
  5. Remove dogs from grill and turn down heat (or raise grids)
  6. Lightly butter your hotdog buns and place them on the grill face down to toast them.
  7. When buns turn slightly brown, turn them nighty degrees and let toast for another 30 seconds.
  8. Remove buns from grill.
  9. Add condiments.
  10. Eat
  11. Enjoy!
