My son wanted to contribute to the 4th BBQ so I had him whip up a kid friendly side item, Poor Mans Burnt ends.
1 package hot fogs
1 20oz can pineapple chunks
1 bottle BBQ sauce
(you can add brown sugar, mustard, chile, garlic, etc)
Smoke in 225-250 degree smoker for 2-3 hours. Another thought I had was to take the hot dog chunks and pre-cook them a bit in a CI pan to char them up a bit.
