Note: This recipe was developed using the Char-Broil Big Easy Oil-Less Fryer. If you are cooking using the Char-Broil Smoker-Roaster Grill you should cook with the lid open and the temperature set to High. You might also need to adjust the cooking time.
I could’ve fired up my gas grill to cook a batch of hot dogs. Or lit some charcoal. That’s when I had a ‘duh’ moment. The Big Easy! It cooks everything great, so why not use it! So that’s what I did and wow, I have to say it cooks up hot dogs about as quick and as easy as you could possibly get. Just fire it up, load it up and wait. Read a book, watch some TV, play a game, because there’s no turning, no worrying, no burning. Done in no time and roasted perfectly! Say hello to the new way to cook up hot dogs!
For something totally different, try marinating your hot dogs first.
Char-Broil makes two different kabob sets for the Big Easy. One sits on the bottom of the Big Easy with the kabobs extending upwards. The other rests on top of the cooking basket with the kabobs pointing downward. Either one will work just fine for cooking up a nice big batch of hot dogs. There’s plenty of room in the Big Easy for jumbo dogs, too.
Hot Dogs on the Char-Broil Big Easy
- 8 hot dogs you can also substitute fresh, uncooked sausages but you’ll have to increase the cook time
- Fire up your Big Easy.
- Thread the hot dogs onto the Big Easy kabobs. If using the holder that points downward be sure you use the cotter pins or the dogs might slide down and off as they cook.
- Lower the kabobs into the Big Easy and cook for 12 minutes or until done as desired.
