Is linking ok on this site? If so, I will add the link, as I can't take credit for this one, but sure did turn out good for me. About the same story, had a bunch of my daughters friends over and did dogs on the smoker -- we skewered them long ways (like frozen bananas on a stick), then sprial cut them by holding a knife at and angle and rolling the hot dog on a cutting board. Sprinkled with rub, and put on the smoker for a while. Un-skewered and put in buns, they were amusing looking, and tasty!

From the Chicago area, usually do Viennas. If they arent available down there, Hebrew Nationals are good. Aldi carries a Chicago style dog that is pretty good & considerably cheaper. As for prep, Weber kettle will do just fine. I'd go a little lower on temp & give them a little smoke. Also agree with previous posts about condiment bar. Include all the fixins you can plus a big can or two of Hormel or Wolf chili. I also prefer poppy seed buns. Good luck.

assembly line work - actually goes pretty quickly! - one person skewering, one cutting, one running around opening packages, putting rub on the finished ones, getting cold beer for everyone, etc.

Taco chili cheese dogs are awesome. Just take a hot dog put nacho cheese and chili on it wrapped in a soft taco shell. I came up with this when we had left over stuff to use and went to the drive in with friends.

Yeah, if you estimate 2 dogs per person, that is eighty dogs. Two per might not be enough. I'd probably do 100 with sides to make sure there is enough. Luckily, I would think all the spiral cutting could be done in advance.

Adding bacon is great, but wrapping 100 dogs in bacon would be time consuming. If you are going to do that, might as well stuff with cheese too.

All depends how "fancy" you want to get...

Cloverdale Farms meat products are distributed by Cash and Carry, United Grocers, and Smart and Final. The hot dogs come in 10 pound boxes and in different sizes.

I use the 6 inch 4/1 size (4/1--4 to a pound or 1/4 pound each)

They come all beef for just under 20 dollars----or 50cents per dog
or the chicken/beef/pork dogs are approx 16 dollars ----or 40 cents each

These are not "Premium" and are not expensive----but they are great products, and when I use them people always ask what brand they are.

40 people-----40 units to a box-----must work

Grabbed a pack of Parks Finest at Wally World the other day and they are very good to my surprise. A bit pricey but worth it.

Seriously, you guys are amazing. So many great ideas!!!! Would love to try every one of them. Here's what I'm thinking this time around. Definitely want to try smoking them - a fitting, entry-level first smoke! I'd also like to spiral cut and have a big ol' condiment bar to make it more legit. I will likely try the Aldi dogs since price is a factor and I've had nothing but the best experience with them.

Some new questions!

1. What kind of temp qualifies as low and slow for hot dogs? 250? And, I hate to even ask something so simple, but what's a good indicator of doneness? I will have my SUPERUBERLIGHTNINGFASTSPECIALFORCESCHUCKNORRIS ORANGE Thermapop standing by as well as the Maverick 733, though it seems almost comical to take the IT of a hot dog. But nevertheless!

2. No one loves smoke flavor more than I do, but I'm a little skittish about the warnings that nothing kills food faster than oversmoke, and I'm thinking the spiral cut may give me even more opportunity to screw this up thusly. Would you all do wood chunks or chips, and how much? I suppose part of that depends on the cook time from no. 1.

3. Would something like the Smokenator 1000 help me here? Seems like it would help maximize grill space while keeping temps pretty even. With my non-COS offset almost done, I hate to buy, but wouldn't mind investing if it would be a good addition, but not if it would be redundant. Would it have any advantages over the offset, say for smaller cooks? Better "lump" mileage?

Sorry for all the questions, guys - you all are champs! Hope I make you proud! Planning a trial run Sunday night...

See I'm the opposite I grew up poor so I was raised on the Mixed hot dogs and cant stand the taste of all Beef hot dogs.

LOL...don't worry about checking the IT of the dog, you'll see when it's done.

This was a spiral cut...not much of a spiral but you get the idea. This was Aldi beef dogs as well.
