thirdeye Posted July 28, 2012 Share Posted July 28, 2012 I've always liked hot dogs, and have cooked my fair share of them. For several months my 3 buddies and I have been putting together ideas for an Eggfest charity cook which took place last weekend. The cooks buy their own food, so we were mindful of cost, but since we were basically showing off in order to raise money, we wanted some flair too. We had decided on pulled pork, flat iron steaks, marinated chicken breasts, pizza and cheese burgers.... but wanted one more item. The servings are "taster" sizes, not full portions and there were 10 cooks grilling food. Anyways..... I found a video for spiral dogs, basically a fancy way to cut the dog, but it's more..... this technique allows for more seasoning area, and more area to char. They cook a little faster, grow about an inch or so and stay straight as an arrow when cooking. These two below were a test cook the night before the event. I did them in a pan on the stove top, to get a feel for the process. WOW, I was sold. Following cutting I seasoned with seasoned salt and a beef BBQ rub and sprayed with olive oil. We served them with a full condiment tray. Folks from 8 to 80 snapped them up, some even declined the bun!! I think I cooked around 40 and they were gone in no time. So, if you like hot dogs, or have kids that like them.... you have to give this a try. Here is a video with the how-to. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
