I'll share the one I cooked up for this here 4th of July. This is what I call the "Official Beercuer Dog." I sure hope that does not sound arrogant... it's just that I'm so proud of this puppy.
So, time to get started. I tend to really enjoy the Hebrew Nationals, particularly though, the beef knockwurst. However, my go to choice is this regional "Hoffy" brand, which just so happens to be the very same supplier to that world famous Pink's in West Hollywood. Notice that these are bun length dogs-- you'll see how dachshund-like this plated dog gets.
Let's see how the cooking of these goes from start to finish. I find that I prefer to grill mine indirect, under the nuance of mesquite or hickory smoke, in this case, mesquite. I believe the dogs develop more flavor this way. Maybe that's just my mind playing tricks on me, but the experience sure feels real.
Time to break out a serious roll, a long artisan filone with plenty of puppy seeds and such. Notice I fit two bun length dogs together inside it. Generous globs of good ol' yellow 'Marican mustard followed.
That would be great in itself, but let's take the flavor up a few notches. How about some potato salad and sliced tomato for more toppings? Pickles on the side and some nice pretzels to go with it (and don't forget your beer/ale!).
Lastly, here's the long view, if interested. I failed to get in the pic the coarse ground pepper with which I finished it. Optionally, a little celery seed could get included. Makes my top ten list anyway-- barkin' good.
