Grilling Hotdogs in Winter - A Yummy Alternative to Boiling or Pan Frying

Updated on December 31, 2018

Hotdogs Fresh Off the Grill


Whose Idea Was it to Grill Outside

Yes. It was my idea. I was listening to my husband tell me about the hotdogs that he had just purchased at the store. He said he could either boil them or fry them in a frying pan. I suggested doing them on the grill.

Well, apparently, since this was my idea, I got nominated to cook them.

So, I went outside and scraped the old stuff off the grates and turned the grill on. Mind you, when it is 30 degrees outside, you almost wonder if the grill will warm up or not.

Our grill is an Electric Grill that we purchased at Home Depot. You turn it on to a number. Number 5 is supposed to heat the grill to 500 degrees. At 30 degrees, the temperature made it to 350 degrees and I added the hotdogs.

They were pretty quiet. Usually you hear the sound of oil spitting. I resisted the urge to open the grill. After about 5 minutes, I heard my first sputter from one of the hotdogs. I opened the grill and flipped them over. They had neat, brown char marks where the grilling bars had contacted the hotdogs.

I closed the lid. The temperature of the grill had dropped to 250 degrees from the door being open. I let it heat up again. I decided to rock the grill to get the hotdogs to roll around. That seemed to work out and I didn't open up the grill again, except to take pictures.

It took about 15 minutes and they were done.

I took them in the house and the internal temperature was approximately 165 degrees.
