- Good All Beef Wieners
- Fresh hot dog buns or potato rolls work nice too
- Good Quality Sauerkraut
- Good Brown Deli Mustard
In my opinion grilled is the only way to go. It brings out the flavor of the wiener and adds really nice texture. You can also add some glazes if you want like teriyaki or BBQ sauce. Now put the sauerkraut in a pot and cook it for about 20 min its breaks it down a little and mellows some of the flavors. Now hot grill and put your hot dog on and keep an eye on it turning after a few min until you can see the fat starting to come out of the dog and it is nicely caramelized.
Now toast the bun right before you serve it until you get light grill marks. Now to assemble place the dog in the bun, I put mustard on each side of the dog and put a nice even layer of the sauerkraut and voila! That is how you make a good old fashion hot dog!
Now all I need is a cold beer and Yankee stadium!
