Bacon Wrapped Dogs with J Dawg Sauce


  • Sauce:
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp ketchup
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp bbq sauce (I used Cattlemens Mephis Sweet)
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp soy sauce
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • Hot Dogs:
  • 8 good quality hot dogs (I used Ball Park Angus Beef Bun Sized Franks)
  • 2 oz sharp cheddar cheese sliced and then cut into thin strips
  • 16 slices of precooked bacon (I used Jimmy Dean fully cooked hickory smoke bacon)
  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 8 hot dog buns


  1. In a small bowl, mix together the sauce ingredients and set aside.
  2. Cut a pocket lengthwise in each hot dog.
  3. Fill the pockets of each hot dog with a couple of the strips of cheese.
  4. Wrap each hot dog with 2 slice of the bacon, using toothpicks to secure the bacon on the hot dogs.
  5. Place on the grill cheese side up and cook over medium low heat until the cheese in is nice and melted.
  6. While the hot dogs cook, brush inside of the buns with melted butter and place butter side down on the grill. Grill until toasted and golden brown.
  7. When hot dogs are fully cooked remove from the grill and remove the toothpick. Serve on the toasted buns along the the sauce you prepared earlier.
