Grilled Chicago Hot Dog

This is my take on a grilled Chicago hot dog. Now, don’t email me telling me I’ve broken some cardinal rule by grilling these (on my Weber grill!). I’ve had “real” Chicago dogs and love them, but if it’s not -45 F outside, I’m going to fire up a grill when I make hot dogs.

These hot dogs really came out great. I love the fresh veggies on them. That cold crunch really adds a lot to the taste.

Also try my southwestern hot dog.

  • Grill or boil the dogs.
  • Lightly toast the poppy seed buns (Note: If you can’t find poppy seed buns in the store, lightly brush or spritz regular buns with olive oil and sprinkle with poppy seeds. Place under the broiler or on the grill to toast them up.)
  • Top the buns with the remaining ingredients, sprinkling with the celery salt last.
