Lowly Hotdog

In the middle of a fairly complex cook the spouse opined that she did not feel well and the only thing that sounded good were hotdogs.  Ha, never have done them on the Egg.  Shift gears slightly, and provide the required dogs.  Bun, cheese, onions, and mustard to complete.

  • There is nothing lowly about a hotdog when it's good food.  Yours is smothered in cheese & onions and makes me want to crank up the Egg.  Good job!

    I'm more of a grilled sausage guy, but these looked better Egged than boiled.

    Try spiral slicing the skin before cooking.  It won't curl, you get a lot more surface area, and lots of crevices for the toppings to slip into.  And they look cool.

  • Try cutting a slit lengthwise in the dog put in shredded cheese and wrap with bacon. Pretty good dog

    My wife hates hotdogs....so I hardly ever cook them at home. Nothing like a hotdog cooked over charcoal though. Up here in New England, steamed weenies seem to be popular.....not for me.

    Dogs look good, but all those raw onions would absolutely destroy my stomach.

    Hey Doc, those dogs look great. I love cheese dogs.
    But I know SWMBO would never let me use that much onion unless I was going out with the boys after dinner.   ;)

    Ha ha, those dog piles were created BY my spouse.  Garlic and onions aren't an issue in this household.

    Just the leg quarters I posted later.  Not fancy, but balancing a lot of food for a dog cook in the middle.

    You mean to raise the grid?  It is a Woo http://www.ceramicgrillstore.com/ .  Price depends on size.

    I did dogs tonight, actually I spatchcocked them and put some cooper sharp cheese on them. They are quick, easy and taste great cooked on the egg. 

     

    Speaking of hot dogs, what are your favorites? I use Nathans mainly because I can get them at Sam's and Costco's but recently I have been using Costco brand 1/4 lb +. I think they are just one step under Pearl which I can't get in my area.

    Those were Hebrew National.  I like Nathans as well.

    +1 to both brands. My favorites on the grill.

    So all the hot dog talk recently caused me stop and buy a few dogs and some rolls at a local shop. Don't even remember the brand....might be Kayem? Anyhow, on the Egg over Royal Oak at about 600° dome temp for a few minutes.

    Then onto fresh New England style rolls(which were super fresh). Hit 'em with some Weber's horseradish mustard, and some home-made piccalilli relish. It's a sweet/sour relish made from green tomatoes, onions, and some hot red peppers too.  Had to wash it all down with an IPA.
