Smoked Hot Dogs

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I'm having a pot luck/cornhole(the corn filled bag throwing game) tournament on Saturday.

For the ease of entertaining I'm going to keep it simple and cook hot dogs. There will be a ton of other food i'm sure.

For ease of cooking the dogs in bulk and not having to hoover over a grill i'm thinking i'm going to smoke the dogs. That way I can set it and forget it, give them and hour or so in the smoker and pull them.

Has anyone ever smoked hot dogs here? Everything tastes better smoked so I fifured why the hell not. I'm going to use Sabrett dogs.

My other option is a super slow simmer in beer. That's always successful.

Me and my buddies play a game that is very similar to cornhole... rules are a little different and we just call it bags... love me some bags icon_redface.gif

I have seen several people here smoke dogs, I havent tried it, but it must be good w/ that many people doing it... (why not do half simmered and half smoked)

I'm actually thinking an overnight beer soak and then smoke.

Beer makes everything better.

Do them all the time. Matter of fact doing a bunch tomorrow night with ABT's and MOINK's. My kids and the neighborhood bunch absolutely love them. I throw them on at 225 -250 for a couple of hours until they swell up real good. I never do nuthin special to them. Something about the smoke flavor. I'm sure a couple will make it to my belly too if I can keep the kids off them. icon_wink.gifIf not I'll have the ABT's to fall back on.

What they all said. Smoked Dogs are the best. Natural casing dogs will take on a nice smoke flavor, plus since the cook temp is low, they don't split. Makes for an incredible bite experience. Make sure to wear a bib!

What about the beer soak?

This just seems like a good idea because it's beer. Probably cheap beer but beer none the less.

Smoked hot dogs sounds great, but I never tried it.

I never tried Cornholing either---Don't think I will.

Can't say I am a big fan of hot dogs myself, but I guess if you smoked them they would be better!

As for the beer, I would say drink the beer while you are smoking the dogs.

Find yourself a case of 8oz dogs. They are huge, about 10 inches long and a inch and a half in dia. We order them from a wholesale food supplier. I've never seen anybody look at them with a straight face. icon_redface.gif We call them "Home Wreckers". They smoke up great but they will need a hogie type bun.

Alright I'll chime in with my Adams Family Idea recipe. I was thinking cold smoke them with some apple wood and then hold them in a dog steamer till requested.

smoke the dogs and drink the beer it is. I'd rather drink the beer anyhow.

I've got some veggies coming to the party as well so maybe i'll throw in some tofu dogs or tofu sausages for them.
