When summer rolls around, one of the things that many people crave is a delicious hot dog. However, not any hot dog will do. You want the perfect summer staple food fresh off the grill. Of course, in order to get that delicious and delectable hot dog you’ve been craving, you need to learn how to grill the perfect hot dog. Get to know some of the steps that you can take to make yourself the perfect grilled hot dog.
The first key in grilling the perfect hot dog is choosing 100% beef hot dogs. All beef dogs are the most flavorful and hold up to seasoning the best. Once you are ready to grill those dogs, you want to avoid grilling your hot dogs over high heat.
High heat will burn and char the outside of the hot dog and leave the center icy cold, leading to an unpleasant dining experience. Instead use medium heat. This may take more time, but allow you to get that nice crispy skin on the outside and hot and juicy on the inside.
Finally, you cannot just put the dogs on the grill and leave then unattended. Continuous turning and rotating will ensure an even grill on your hot dog and will prevent one side from getting done and the other still being cold and plain.
By following these simple tips, you will surely impress yourself as well as family and friends next time you have a fun summer BBQ.
