the Ingredients

How to Grill Hot Dogs
  • 2 medium tomatoes, cut crosswise into ¼-inch slices
  • 8 all-beef hot dogs, each about 4 ounces
  • 8 hot dog buns, preferably poppy seed, split
  • 16 pepperoncini or sport peppers
  • 2 dill pickles, cut into spears
  • ½ cup finely chopped yellow onion
  • ½ cup 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 (350° to 450°F).
  • 03 Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the hot dogs over direct medium heat, with the lid closed As for how long to grill the hot dogs, just grill them until nicely browned, 4 to 5 minutes should do, 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.
