Step 1: I split the wiener lengthwise so it will lay flat and I use my griddle to grill them on each side. I once heard a T.V. chef say, "Browned food is good food." This is most definitely a true statement when it comes to hot dogs.
Step 3: Dress that dog for a party. My personal favorite condiment combination is spicy mustard, sweet relish, chili and sharp cheddar cheese.
