Joe's Dogs

Years of camping with our kids resulted in a severe aversion to hot dogs. My wife and I would cringe when the kids would request grilled dogs for dinner. I spent years trying to find a way to prepare them so we all enjoyed the meal. This is the result. These are REALLY GOOD...please use a good dog like Hebrew National. It makes a huge difference.

Interesting way to serve hot dogs. I scaled it down to two hot dogs and served with Recipe #186721. Over all pretty good, but the marinade was not really mine or my mothers taste. But I'm more of a purest when it comes to my dogs. I will probably make this for pinic and pot luck for people who like more "sassy" hot dogs. But if you do like your dogs kicked up a knotch then this is for you!
