Hot dogs are really only good when rolled. Boiled is nasty, grilled is dry and weird textured, baked... wait, what's wrong with you?

    Boiled is best but you can't really do it at home. The problem is that all of the juices mix with the the water and they come out flavorless. You have to cook at least two dozen hot dogs in the same pot of water to get a good result. The hot dog water begins to saturate with hot dog juices to replenish the juices lost while cooking. No one makes enough hot dogs at once to make it worthwhile though, even at a party.

      the correct way to cook a dawg is to set it in a skillet with a 1/4 of water, sliced bell peppers, white wine, a few drops of liquid smoke and a tablespoon of butter
      cover to steam then uncover and brown the dawg/peppers once the water evaporates

      serve on a bun with ground mustard. drizzling the butter on the bun is optional

    You boil the dogs in water while you leave them sealed in the package. The hot dog brine doesn’t get diluted and it’s not like you can make them give you more cancer anyway.
    Only then can you grill them or flat top them or cram them.

    First I par boil the dog in order to hydrate it before vacuum sealing it and soaking in a sous vide bath for approximately 1 hour and 25 minutes at 135 degrees Fahrenheit. Then I sear the dog on a hot cast iron pan with butter and rosemary. I gently lay the dog on to a fresh, home baked hot dog bun and add my preferred toppings which include but aren't necessarily limited to: pickle relish, ketchup, mustard and the most finely diced shallot.

    >Grilled

    I've always wrapped mine in a tin foil, and turn them occasionally. Come out juicy, some char, and taste great. Not sure how you're grilling them unless it's directly on the grate, and over a flame.. If you're doing on the grate directly just move them to the side, and not directly over the coals.

    Roller dogs are pretty good though. Would totally get one, but the last thing I need is to start eating a bunch of beef dogs to justify a purchase like that.

    In my opinion corn on the cob should only be cooked on a grill. I think any other way is silly, and less optimal. Wrap by them in foil with some butter, and seasoning.

        the grill is basically the worst way to corn. it's only singular virtue is convenience.

        As opposed to what? If I'm grilling, corn is something I'd serve as a side in conjunction with something else I'm grilling. So it's not inconvienent. If you're firing up the grill for only a cob or two that's fair, but i' strictly talking about cooking method. Not how you choose to season it, etc. Grilling it carmalizes the corn nicely, and brings out a nice flavor.

          I'd say MOST boil, but some grill. A real cool cart does both like this guy. They smother it with butter, mayo/veg cream stuff, crumbly white cheese, chili powder/sauce, lime/lemon. Shits tasty.

          If you're a savage you get a whole cup o creamed corn thing. I prefer the cob everytime, tho.

          I imagine boiling is just easier when you're peddaling a cart around. It is street food. Kinds like a dirty water dog is easier than carrying a charcoal grill or flat top or w.e.

    Once you master the art of microwaving a hot dog you will see it's the best way to cook one.
    >Lay 3 hot dogs end to end in a triangle on a dinner plate
    >Set microwave on lowest power setting
    >Cook for 45-80 seconds depending on your microwave's wattage
    >Usually not done after this, touch them to see how warm they are
    >Wait 30 seconds
    >Put them in again on the lowest power setting
    >Monitor to make sure the ends don't explode
    As long as it's in the same shape as when you put it in (some end bulging is ok) you will have the perfect, hot, moist weiner your mouth deserves. Cooking them on a grill's bun warmer is kino too.

      You realize that every microwave's "power setting" works by just cycling the magnetron on and off, and each cycle is quite a while? Setting it on low for 45 seconds is just going to result in it getting microwaved at full power for 5 seconds maybe twice.

      • 4 weeks ago

        Yes I am aware and that's what makes it effective for making hot dogs. By all means leave it on high and spend the entire time pressing 5 then waiting then starting it again over and over until it's cooked instead of just letting the microwave do that. You're also not supposed to cook it all the way on the first go you want it 30-50% cooked so you can adjust the time based on those initial results after you wait 30 seconds. If you cook it on high or try and just wing it and get it exact the first time there's a strong chance the casing is going to burst and your hot dog will be dry and shitty.

    Or sliced into little discs, tossed into the ramen as the water boils, and cooked and steamed.

    Boiled/poached is superior. Steamed is a close second.
    It rehydrates the dog, dilutes its high salt content to reveal its true flavor, and results in a delicate, even cook. You could always post-boil grill/sear it if you're a manbaby.
