Hot Dog

Hot dog, the most popular item grilled in backyards and parks. Really not much to cooking them, but what kind of grilling website would ignore them?

  • 10 100% beef (or Kosher) hot dogs
  • 8 Fresh Baked Buns 8 because the buns and dogs never come in matching amounts
  • mustard optional
  • ketchup optional
  • pickle relish optional
  • onions optional


  • Heat grill to medium heat.
  • Place the hot dogs on the grill using a pair of grill tongs.
  • Ok, instead of attempting the impossible of suggesting times, let me describe the goal we are trying to attain when grilling hot dogs. We are looking to create nice grill marks and a brown skin that has a "snap" when you bite into it. We also don't want to split the hot dogs, hence the lower than high heat.
  • Given our goal in #3 above, grill and turn (roll) the hot dogs on the grill until you get the perfect doneness all around the dog.
  • Immediately serve on one of your nice fresh hot dog buns with your favorite fix in's.
