Granny's hot dawgs

This was a great day to cook on the BGE. I wanted to try different things. Here is the first one for the day.

My cousin, Hugh Hardy owns Carroll's Sausage & Meats in S Ga. is their website. Hugh also has his own local cooking show and a cookbook out on Amazon.

He often has his grandmother, my aunt Ruth on his cooking show. She is 87 and a real Pip. Anyway on one of his shows Ruth is talking about her "special" hotdogs. The recipe is:

all beef franks
a CI skillet
1/2 stick butter
1/2 tsp celery salt
1/2 tsp onion salt
1/2 tsp garlic salt

So today I fired up the small and set it up raised grid direct. I let the Egg get to 375 degrees at the dome. I put the CI skillet in for 5 minutes and then melted the butter. Once the butter was melted I put in the 3 spices and stirred into the butter. I put the hot dogs in the skillet and cooked them until they were nice & brown. Ginny had made coleslaw and heated up hotdog chili. Two of these bad boys and a nap was imminent. The spices were really great on the dogs and I doubt I will do them any other way.

    Will you consider doing those in Ocala. If not, Can I have permission? They look wonderful!

    It is funny you mention Ocala. After cooking those Ginny said we should do these in Ocala. ;) I have a few other things I want to try so I will let you know ahead of time.

    Thanks for the compliment.... :lol:

    ahhh...very nice Kim!..what won't a half stick of butter make good!?! :P ..I buy beef bologna, sometimes boar's head, from my butcher and fry bologna the same way..right before taking it off, stick a couple pieces of cheese on it and serve on whole wheat bread with mayo, a glass of milk, and side(s) of your choice... :woohoo:
  • Vidalia - those look great, I can't wait to try them. Thanks you for sharing the recipe.

    Hey Crimsongater,
    Please, oh, please make your jalepeno cornbread in Ocala! I have told so many people about it and I would love to have it again. Or, maybe even the recipe would suffice - pleeaasse. It was one of the best things I tasted at Octoberfest.

    The plans are to do the cornbread and do a throwdown with Pete (cornbread throwdown). I think you would be a great candidate for a judge ;)
  • vidalia1vidalia1 Posts: 7,091
    I have got a Mexican cornbread I may have to throw at you's GOOOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Glad to hear you're enjoying your Aunt Ruth's weiners. I've never had 'em that way, I may need to try 'em.
  • OK, I will happily be the judge of your thowdown.

    I use my griddle on the Egg for cooking dogs, although not in butter mailmam.gif

    The rub I use one is of my oldest brisket rubs which has onion, garlic and celery seed (among a few other things) on them. That is a great combination for sure. Seasonings really help out the low-fat dogs. If you never have, try the same thing on fried bologna, I do use butter for that.
    Happy Trails
