Saucy BBQ Hot Dogs

26

The other day a thought came to me… we should simmer hot dogs in BBQ sauce BEFORE grilling them rather than putting BBQ sauce on afterwards. We simmer lil’ smokies in BBQ sauce and they are pretty much just little hot dogs, so why not?! We thought we would give it a try to see how they would turn out… the verdict… DELICIOUS! Why didn’t I think of this before??

8
8 beef hot dogs (we like Nathan's or Hebrew National)
8 hot dog buns
your favorite hot dog toppings
For the sauce:
3/4 c. ketchup
1/2 c. BBQ sauce (we used Bull's Eye original)
1/3 c. brown sugar
1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
1/2 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp. onion powder
Combine sauce ingredients in a medium-sized sauce pot. When sauce is combined and sugar is dissolved (don't quite bring to a boil) remove from heat and set aside. Add hot dogs to slow cooker and pour sauce...
