Hot dogs are a summer staple. I love them on the grill. I never would have thought to marinate hotdogs before. That was, until I tried these marinated grilled hot dogs.
You have to make some little slice marks in the hot dogs, so the marinated can get in there. I just make small diaganal slices on 2 sides of the hot dog. I do it on the top and on the bottom.
Then the hot dog sits in almost like a sauce to marinade. I think if you really wanted to drive home the flavor of the marinade, you could make extra to serve on the hot dogs after cooking. The base of the sauce is chili sauce. Chili sauce is like ketchup with a kick.
Then you add in some spices like garlic powder, onion powder, brown sugar and pepper. There is also a little mustard and worchestershire sauce added into the mix. You can marinade them 20 minutes or up to all day. I did it for an hour but want to try longer next time.
