Bacon Dogs on the Big Green Egg   Leave a comment

Nathan’s hot dog wrapped with bacon and dressed with grainy hot mustard and sweet pickle relish. I know – the onions are missing.

For some reason I had a hankering for a good hot dog. My favorite wieners are the famous Nathan’s. I also had a package of thick-cut bacon in the fridge, so I decided to wrap the wieners with a nice slice to make some Bacon Dogs.

I made a two-zone fire in the BGE, and cooked 4 bacon dogs at a time to cope with the flare-ups.

These were simple and fast and good. I think I need to try replacing the bacon with some Italian prosciutto or  cappicola (gabagoul) next time.

And always remember: As  Dirty Harry (Clint Eastwood) said in “Sudden Impact” — “Nobody, I mean nobody puts ketchup on a hot dog.”

So after making these Bacon Dogs, my mind began to wander at the office today, and I thought about Maui Hot Dogs and Hawaiian Portuguese sausage. So I stopped by the local Marukai market (Costa Mesa, CA) and bought a selection of linguica. I will be doing a comparison of the various sausages at the next cook-out!

UPDATE: Looks like someone already did a Portuguese sausage “shoot-out”
