I have a rule about hamburgers and sandwiches: the messier they are, the better they taste. That same rule also applies to hot dogs. These Tennessee smoky hot dogs follow my rule to a ‘T’. You’ve got your messy, delicious chili. Those are gonna run down your arms. You’ve also got your messy, crunchy slaw. Yep, going down your arm too. Messy and good!
Feel free to substitute some good ole baked beans for the hot dog chili. And a little hickory smoked bacon won’t hurt either. These Tennessee Smoky hot dogs make for the perfect dog.
Also try my slow cooker chili dogs. They put the ‘mess’ in ‘messy’ too. Or something like that.
Slicing your hot dogs before cooking helps ensure that the toppings don’t slide off. And that’s a good thing!
Also try my cowboy hot dogs.
