Best Thing Ever II

A while back I posted a link to a video about how to spiral cut your hot dogs.  It looked so cool we decided to give it a try at our annual hot dog extravaganza/fiasco on the 4th of July.  See HERE and HERE.  Anyhoo, this year we decided to "only" grill 50 hot dogs since we couldn't light off fireworks due to the extreme crispiness of the landscape.  We figured if we could only have 1/2 the fun of the 4th, we were only gonna grill 1/2 the amount of dogs. 

I stuck the skewers through the dogs (so as not to handle the knife-see HERE).

Chachie spiral cut the dogs.

It took a while to get good at it...

But soon we had 50.  It took about 20 minutes to cut them all.

They were kind of a pain to pick up and move around on the grill, but I figured out halfway through cooking them that if you grab them with long flat tongs longways like this:

You can pick them up without breaking the thin parts of the spiral.

Looking good...

I thought for a while about how I would express how much better hot dogs are spiral cut and I decided that I would use just one word: Ridicubettertastic.

I can never go back to regular dogs.  Not after this Renaissance.  The condiments really do fit better down in the spirals and the extra meat that is exposed to the flame totally increases the flavor.

Spiral cut dogs = Epic.  Woulda been better with fries, though.

  1. Holy shit Kyle... that is the freakiest and most ingenious single thing I think I have ever seen you do! I'm totally going to do this in Nashville.


Got something to say?
