    Chef Mike Hedrick demonstrates how to add a twist to grilling hot dogs.

    Mike Hedrick: Men we are grilling like a villain today. Right now, we're going to do some hotdogs. When you're picking hotdogs, they make a lot of difference kinds. There are pork hotdogs, there are beef hotdogs, and you just got to remember you have all kind of different people that you party, so try to take care of them. But a way that you can do and have a lot of fun with hotdogs is just score them. Kids love doing this, because they can mark their own hotdog, and they know which one is there's on the grill. And really, all we're going to do, is we're going to take that hotdog and we're just going to score through that skin, just the ever slightest, we don't have to cut really deep, in fact, you don't want to cut deep. You just want to open up that skin, and get them on there. We're going to go ahead and do this with a pattern, maybe we will make some nice long stripes, like I said you can let them just make their own, their own hotdogs like this. Let's do another Barber pole, and that way they're keeping track when they are on the grill, anytime they're talking with each other. They're not messing with you, so that's a good thing. And you can see, they are looking great over here on the grill. We've got swirled ones; we've got some that have the lines cut in on them like that. Hotdogs are pretty much already pre-cooked, so it's a matter of just putting grill marks on them, and just having fun with them. Put them on the bun, condiments, maybe a little Ketchup, Mustard, Relish, all that kind of stuff. It's going to be great!
