Folks - This is a recipie that is pretty poular with my family. I thought I'd share it with the group:

Bob Dawgs

For the dogs:

• One package skinless hot dogs (Nathan’s are best)
• One package shredded sharp cheddar cheese (Or, shred your own)
• One whole tomato – diced
• One sweet onion – diced
• One quarter-head iceberg lettuce – shredded
• Rolls of your choice

For the secret sauce:
• 1 ˝ cups chopped white onion
• 2 cloves minced garlic
• 1 1/2 pounds 80% ground beef
• 1/4 cup yellow mustard
• 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
• 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
• 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
• 15 oz can of beef broth
15 oz can of tomato sauce
6 oz can of tomato paste

• 2 teaspoons Hungarian paprika
• 2 teaspoons chili powder
• 2 tablespoons red pepper flaks
Sauce Directions:
1. Sauté onions and garlic in olive oil. Add ground beef and cook until browned. Drain off excess fat.
2. Combine remaining ingredients separately from the sauté pan and mix well.
3. Add to ground beef then stir well and heat through.
4. Reduce heat and simmer for one hour
Dog Directions:

1. Smoke dogs, (hickory chips are best), one hour at approx. 200-225 degrees
2. Split dogs down the middle, but do not cut in half
3. Toast rolls of choice
4. Place one dog in roll
5. Add secret sauce to dog, in the “split”
6. Add shredded cheese to the split, then tomato, onion and lettuce on top

Been doing the hot dogs on the WSM for almost 6 years now, and they are fantastic. I prefer Nationl Hebrew but these Bob Dawgs really sound good. Like a chili/taco dawg.

I am not a hot dog fan...but damn this looks great, and I will probably do it sometime soon.

Folks - The key to smoked hot dogs is to use the skinless type. They will absorb the smoke. I learned this the hard way. I'm doing these for Father's Day, since that is my holiday in the Famly Order of things. I'll post pictures and any mods to the recipie that weekend. Enjoy. - Bob
