Burn Pit HOT Dogs!

Looking for an easy way to spice up your ordinary hot dogs?  Give these "HOT" dogs a try!


  • 8 hot dogs & buns
  • 4-6 jalapeño peppers
  • 4-5 oz. of your favorite cheese - cut into strips
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 8 pieces of bacon - Optional
  • Your favorite toppings - we recommend Burn Pit's Sticky Fire!

The Process:

🌶Step 1: Make two lengthwise cuts in each hot dog to remove a slender V-shaped strip from the center. The idea is to cut the hot dog almost in half lengthwise but leave the halves attached at the bottom.

🌶Step 2: Insert the cheese and four jalapeno slices in the slit.

🌶Step 3: Tie each hot dog crosswise in two places with butcher’s string to hold in the filling. Or wrap in bacon for an extra layer of flavor!

🌶Step 4: Set up the grill for direct grilling and preheat to high.

🌶Step 5: Grill until nicely browned on the bottom and both sides, slightly tilting the hot dogs on their sides with tongs to brown them, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a platter and snip off and discard the strings.

🌶Optional: Brush the inside of the buns with the melted butter and grill them on the grill for 1 minute. Serve the “hot” dogs with the toppings of your choice.

Serve with a cold beverage and chips! Enjoy!
