BBQ Hot Dogs Recipe

It should come as no surprise that hot dogs and BBQ sauce would be a great combination. During the summer hot dogs are an excellent choice for the grill. These hot dogs are brushed with BBQ sauce while grilling and then topped with homemade coleslaw and a dill pickle spear. I recommend using the all beef hot dogs as they definitely have better flavor. They are a little more expensive but well worth it. For the BBQ sauce you can either use store bought or you can make your own. These are perfect for summer cookouts. Enjoy.

Yum! It's not dinner time yet but now you've gone and made me hungry! I almost always put BBQ sauce on my chicken, but never thought to put it on a dog. Nice change up. Thanks for the share! PS - I'm a new follower!
