What fun these smoked spiral hot dogs were to make and devour! I’ve made spiral dogs before, but this technique is much better than my old way.

  • Fire up your smoker for 225 F. You can also make these hot dogs on a grill
  • Carefully guide the skewer through the center of the hot dogs. If you get the skewer crooked at it pokes out of the side of the dog just pull it back and try again. I found that laying the hot dogs down on a flat surface and sliding the skewer in from the side, parallel to the counter top, worked best.
  • Lay the skewered dog down onto a cutting board or flat surface.
  • Holding a knife at a 45 degree angle, starting at one end of the dog, cut into the dog down to the skewer. Start rolling the hot dog, keeping the knife inserted into the hot dog, making cuts that are about 1/2" apart. Continue rolling and cutting until you reach the other end of the hot dog.
  • Gently pull the dog apart, separating the cuts. Be careful, you don't want to break it.
  • Sprinkle with your favorite seasoning.
  • Place dogs onto the smoker and smoke for 2 hours. If grilling grill until done as desired.
  • Serve hot.
