    For Want of a Hot Dog

    All of the hot dog threads from the past few months left a powerful strong craving in me. I decided that I've had enough, I must have a hot dog. But such a sublime food item mustn't come from humdrum outfitters such as Walmart or Neiman Marcus. No, I must have the best. What, pray, is the only hot dog that will satisfy my craving? Which will fill me to satiety? Why, Omaha Steaks Gourmet Jumbo Franks of course!

    But this can't be just a slap together hotdog. No, this requires planning. So I started yesterday by putting a chuck roast on the SnS kamado for a couple of hours to get a little smoke. I then cubed it up, browned in a skillet, and made chili. Not plain jane chili but Troutman 's Chili con Carne , chili at its most basic and refined. The official food of Texas. (And Steve's recipe is damn good).

    So, to be at it's peak chili must (like good Gumbo or beans) rest overnight. Tonight I fired up the SnS kamado yet again and set it up for reverse searing. I placed those little cylinders of meaty goodness on the indirect side to get a little taste of pecan smoke before getting a nice brown striped overcoat on the hot side. Gotta watch them temps!

    To serve I placed them lovingly in artisan hotdog buns with a little Dijon mustard (if its good enough to serve in Rolls Royces its good enough for me) and since I'm Texan I added a little ketchup. We Texans aren't completely uncouth, I used Gourmet Ketchup, says so right on the bottle. I usually only bring it out when company is coming over. Topped with Steve's excellent chili and some Mexican cheese blend, a wonderful meal indeed!

      Great write up and great looking dogs, but no chopped onions? Up here we put them on both chili and hot dogs.

        My mouth is watering. I’m smoking a brisket this weekend and there will no doubt be leftovers (17lb packer for six people 😎). Chili is in my future, and I’m def doing a chili dog like this!

        My normal method for a “quick” dog is to cook a couple pieces of bacon in a skillet. Once bacon is nearly done toss in a couple Kirkland beef franks to fry in the bacon grease.

        Toast a couple of buns, hit’em with French’s yellow mustard, then load the dogs and bacon. Top with Grillo’s dill pickle chips…and if I’m feeling spicy a quick shake of Tajin!

          Santamarina I was just talking about that kind of hot dog you get at the farmers market. Bacon wrapped and topped with grilled onions and jalapeños. Now I want to go to the FM.

        58limited I loves me a good chili dog! What chili recipe did you use?

        NVM, I just saw your reference to the recipe.

                  So much work for 4 chili dogs, haha!

                  Reminds me of a video I saw by Babyback Maniac where he fired up a Ranch kettle to reverse sear a single hot dog...

                    While at Sam's Club a few years ago we came across a package of Nathan's Dogs that are 1/4 pound apiece, have that good snap when sautéed and are perfect for us. We still get them to this day but only find them at Sam's and BJ's (occasionally). We freeze 4 to a pack because the chili dog sauce can only lasts for 4 dogs which is two meals for us.

                    The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


                    The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                    The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


                    Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
