July is National Hot Dog month! You must celebrate with these AMAZING Grilled Hot Dogs! OMG! SO good!!! This was the first time that I marinated hot dogs, and I will never grill a naked dog again! The marinade makes all the difference. Chicken Legs doesn't even like hot dogs, and he asked me to make these again this weekend. They must be good!

The hot dogs only need to marinate a few minutes before going on the grill. I loved how the hot dogs looked with the little cuts in them.  I can definitely see us grilling these dogs at a tailgate this Fall.

Grilled Hot Dogs
(Printable Recipe)

  • 8 hot dogs (we used Hebrew National)
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil

With a small, sharp knife, make cuts at an angle in 2 rows down each hot dog, about 1/2 inch apart, cutting partway into the hot dog. The cuts should look like rounded half circles.

Mix the ketchup with the Worcestershire sauce, oil and garlic. Pour into a large ziplock bag, add hot dogs and let marinate for 15-20 minutes.

Light grill. Grill the hot dogs until nicely charred and the cuts open up, about 3-5 minutes total.

  6. That corn dog maker is so cool. Does it taste the same without the deep frying? I love corn dogs but hate messing with the hot oil all the time.

  8. How do you get 8 hotdogs out of a Hebrew National package? They only pack 7 to a package.

    1. lol!..... YOU DON'T!!... I was going to ask if they went large buying 2 packs of HN just to fill 8 buns. I called ConAgra about this very thing and was told in response to the 7 pack quirk "Great Question" (felt as though I had mistakenly called into the Nancy Grace show) ... the person flipped through a few pages of canned pr responses and gave this answer.. the packaging like was set up for 7 hotdogs, not eight. It is nothing more than a marketing ploy rip-off. Nothing mystical about it. I see Parks Best is running the same scam. Next thing that will happen is that the bread mfgs. will start turning out 6 pack buns.

  9. Hi. :D When I was growing up mom use to make us stuffed piggies that are just like your crescent dogs without the crescent. Well almost the same. We add slices of gerkins pickles to ours. Slice the dog and lay slices of the sweet pickles and cheese in the slot. Wrap in bacon and bake. These are seriously good but I'm going to take it to the next level and try them with the crescents next time I make them. :D

  10. We can't find a hot dog that we like since Oscar Mayer changed their beef franks a few years ago. Anyone have a suggestion for a good hot dog to try? I hate to go a buy a bunch of different brands and waste them. Thanks!

  11. You said two rows of slits......so, opposite side of the round hot dog? I only see one row of slits on the dogs.

    1. Yes - the other set of slits is face down the grill.
