    Bacon wrapped hot dogs

    Tried something new on the grill. Used toothpicks to anchor spiral wrapped bacon strips on hot dogs and grill them. I was disappointed. I didn't experience any new taste sensations. I would have been better off serving them separately. Hey, we had corn on the cob. I wonder if you could pull back the shucks, wrap them with bacon, pull the shucks back up, and grill them. What does everyone think?

    I'm guessing you'd have a lot of silk on the bacon.

    When we do 1/4lb beef franks on the grill, I always fry bacon and lay it in the bun along the dog. Way easier than the wrapping and I think it tastes better.
    hooky is an unknown quantity at this point.

    You probably served them up wrong. A bacon wrapped dog should be served Sonoran style for the best taste. Just wrapping something in bacon doesn't guarantee best results.

    I made bacon-wrapped dogs stuffed with cheese, and my husband proclaimed them the best hot dogs ever. Maybe I shouldn't have started that!

    If you're going to wrap them, pan-frying or cooking them in the oven works better than the grill. Alternatively, smoking them until the bacon is crisp takes a while, but will blow your freakin' mind.

    Wrap in bacon, attache bacon with a couple of tothpicks....deep fry in peanut oil or vegetable oil...until bacon is done. Drain on paper towel and serve in a fresh steamed bun with you r favorite hot dog toppings.

    You can also dip the bacon clad hot dog in corn dog batter and fry it that way too. Bacon wrapped corn dogs....MMMmmmmm

    I like the hot dogs and bacon thing, but on the grill there's too much grease and flareup for me. I do them under the broiler.

    Heh heh, Hebrew franks wrapped in bacon. Definitely haram.
    Geeking out on ancestry; I've found one! I fumbled around Caius Assinius Quadratus and found an uncle or something that died in 56, at the age of 56. That gets me my BC cred, he was born in 1BC. Hey, what the heck, I'm 56. My Patricians back then usually well outlived that.
