Hot Dogs

Hot dogs are not what one thinks of when they think of the Big Green Egg. Is it worth lighting the grill just took cook hot dogs? I think so. They are actually one of the easiest things I have cooked so far. Here is the recipe:

1. Light the BGE and bring the temperature to 400 degrees. Make sure the egg is set for direct cooking.

2. Place the hot dogs directly on the grate and close the egg. (use whatever hot dogs you like. I used cheap, but good Bryan Juicy Jumbos)

3. Close the lid and cook for two minutes. After two minutes, open the grill (watch for flashbacks) and flip the dogs.

4. Cook another two minutes and check. If they are all ready, you're done. If not, flip again and wait about 1.5 minutes and they should be done.

5. Remove from egg, shut down the fire and enjoy. I like mine with mustard, ketchup, relish, onions and chili.
