Grilled Chili Dogs

Grilled Chili Dogs

Believe it or not, I had never eaten a grilled hot dog until last week.  I am not saying that we have not grilled hot dogs at our house, though.  Usually when Phillip grilled hot dogs, he also grilled cheese burgers and I would always choose the cheese burger but comment on how good the grilled wieners looked and smelled.  Just never had room in my belly for both!  Well, I came home from work recently and Phillip was standing at the grill and the lid was on the grill.  He told me that he had decided to make hot dog chili with the hamburger meat and was grilling hot dogs.  When he lifted the lid off of the grill, he was really grilling cheese burgers.  I told him after we had our supper of cheese burgers that he had slung a craving on me for Grilled Chili Dogs and that's what I wanted to try one night soon.  A Grilled Chili Dog was just as good as I had hoped it would be!  I found out what I had been missing and why Phillip and Brent loved them so.  Never too old to learn or try something new.

Grilling the hot dog wieners does not take long, about 10 - 12 min.  Light the charcoal and allow it to burn until it turns white.  Place the wieners on the rack.  After cooking for about 3 min., roll the wieners a quarter turn.  Continue to roll and cook the wieners until they are cooked to desired doneness.  Serve with hot dog chili.
