All Beef Hot Dogs Cooking Tips

Preparing Hotdogs

Partially thaw hot dogs in the refrigerator. Use scissors or kitchen shears to cut through the packaging.


Tip: The key to a juicy beef hot dog is to use tongs - never a fork. If you stab the dog, all the juices will run out. Whether grilling, broiling, steaming, pan frying or boiling, the goal is to always heat evenly and quickly.

On the grill: Put partially thawed dogs on the grill and turn frequently to achieve even browning. It only takes a few minutes until they're perfect!

Grilling Machine: Preheat machine for 5 minutes. Place hot dogs on the grilling machine and close lid. Use tongs, not a fork, to put them in and take them out.

Broiling: Preheat oven on broil for 10 minutes. During broiling the oven door should remain ajar on electric ranges, but the door remains closed on gas ranges. (Consult your owner's manual for specific broiling guidelines).

Serving: Serve on a bun or without. Top with relish, ketchup, mustard, even sauerkraut. It's all good! Hot dogs should measure a recommended internal temperature of 160F using a meat thermometer before serving.
