Memphis-Style BBQ Hot Dogs

Nothing beats a good ole hot dog off the grill. And there’s no need to just heap on the mustard or relish and call it done. You can throw just about anything that’s in your fridge on a dog (including mayo!). These Memphis-Style BBQ hot dogs have that great down-south flavor from smoky bacon and barbecue sauce, topped with gooey cheese, and kicked up with green onions and jalapeno slices.

Memphis-Style BBQ Hot Dogs

I used a spicy BBQ sauce on these Memphis-style BBQ hot dogs. You can go with sweet or smoky, or whatever suits your fancy.

Slicing your hot dogs before cooking helps ensure that the toppings don’t slide off. And that’s a good thing!
