  • 2 medium tomatoes, cut crosswise into 6-millimeter slices
  • 8 all-beef hot dogs, each about 115 grams
  • 8 hot dog buns, preferably poppy seed, split
  • 16 pepperoncini or sport peppers
  • 2 dill pickles, cut into spears
  • 60 grams finely chopped yellow onion
  • 245 grams sweet pickle relish, preferably emerald green Chicago-style relish
  • Yellow mustard
  • Celery salt


  • 01 Cut each tomato slice in half to make half-moons.
  • 02 Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat (180° to 230°C).
  • 03 Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the hot dogs over direct medium heat, with the lid closed, until nicely browned, 4 to 5 minutes, turning once. During the last 30 seconds of grilling time, toast the buns, cut side down, over direct heat.
  • 04 Place a grilled hot dog in each bun with two tomato slices, two peppers, a pickle spear, chopped onion, pickle relish, and mustard. Finish with a generous dash of celery salt. Serve warm.
