In honor of Independence Day and American BBQ history, Ernie Adler of Ernie's Smokehouse BBQ, stopped by WBTV News Saturday Morning to pay homage to the all American Hot Dog. He showed viewers his version of the hot dog bar.
First start with a good quality all beef hot dog. Remember hot dogs are technically sausages but my all beef preference wins. If it has pork, I'd rather have a brat or sausage. Hot dogs are usually pre-cooked and brats are not, so remembering to follow food safety guidelines grilling to 160 degrees is important. You only need to grill hot dogs to 140 degrees, nicely browned.
