Griddle Hot Dog Tips

  • Use a good Oil – I usually use avocado oil, coconut oil or canola oil on the Blackstone grill as they have a high smoke point.
  • Meat Thermometer – Using a meat thermometer on the hot dog makes sure that they are heated to 140 degrees. It takes about 5 minutes to cook a hot dog on the griddle.
  • Hot Dog Buns – Heat Hot Dog buns on the non oil side of the griddle. This allows the buns to have a nice crunchy texture and warms them up.
  • Heat Griddle – Make sure your griddle is at the right temperature before grilling hot dogs. It doesn’t take a lot of heat to cook hot dogs but you don’t want it to hot that you burn them.
  • Flip Frequently – Because hot dogs don’t take long to cook, stay close to griddle and flip hot dogs frequently.
  • Thaw Hot Dogs – We do not recommend placing frozen or cold hot dogs on the grill. We like to set the hot dogs out a few minutes prior to grilling them.
  • Wrap Hot Dogs in Bacon – If you want a twist to your hot dogs, wrap them in bacon.

Topping Ideas

From homemade ketchup to homemade hot dog relish, don’t skimp on the toppings. Our family loves a variety of condiments on their hot dogs and it is the perfect addition to perfectly grilled hot dogs.

And of course you have to have the best hot dog chili recipe and it is super easy.
