My name is Kara, from Life With Fingerprints, where I blog about my love for building projects, throwing parties and spending time in the kitchen. I’m happy to be here sharing my favorite BBQ secret: Spiral cut hot dogs.
And before you think – the way you cut your hot dog can’t possibly make a difference in the taste – let me tell you it totally does.
With very little effort – your hot dogs will taste better than ever before.
The supply list is pretty short: Hot dogs, skewers (metal or wooden) and a knife.
Start with your favorite brand of hot dog (mine happens to be the Kirkland All Beef hot dogs from Costco) and a skewer.
Skewer your hot dog down the middle.
Starting on one end, take a knife and cut at an angle all the way to the skewer. Rotate your hot dog until you reach the end.
Remove the hot dog from the skewer and barbecue.
The hot dogs plump up real nice and the edges of the spiral get nice and crisp. Not to mention the spiral edges give more room for your favorite condiments. Nothing beats a condiment bar with your spiral dog – we’ve even thrown a party with a hot dog bar and everyone walks away happy. Happy summer grilling!
