Tips & Tricks

DESIGNED FOR CASING-FREE / SKINLESS HOT DOGS

For an ideal SLOTDOG experience use casing-free/skinless hot dogs. Natural or collagen casing hot dogs/sausages have a skin that is usually too thick and hard to slot leading to ruptured dogs, so go with a good old skinless dog and slot to you heart’s content! Take a look at our recommended hot dogs brand list.

COLD / FIRM HOT DOGS WORK BEST

Slightly firm, fridge temperature (34-36 F) hot dogs work best, as over-thawing can make the hot dogs too squishy to slot, and no one likes a smooshed dog! If they're squishy and you're in a pinch, putting them in the freezer for 10-15 minutes before slotting can help.

PUSH – PULL – FLIP  REPEAT

We recommend slotting both sides as it prevents the dog from curling up on you as the slots expand, but it's really up to personal preference. Simply press SLOTDOG down with an end to end rocking motion on two opposite sides of a hot dog, then toss it on the BBQ and watch as it transforms in front of your eyes! A dozen hotdogs only takes 2 minutes to prep. 

SLOTDOG HOT DOGS COOK QUICKLY – MIND THE GRILL

Start with a moderately hot grill – SLOTDOG hot dogs cook faster than a boring regular hot dog. As the hot dog cooks, the criss-cross slots expand and juices from inside caramelize on the surface. Grill smoke and flavor penetrate deeper into the hotdog. When the slots have fully expanded and you've reached your preferred level of crispiness dig in!

SLATHER ON THE CONDIMENTS

Dress up your awesome SLOTDOG hot dogs with rich and hearty condiments knowing they’ll be held with a kung-fu grip. We highly recommend Slawsa® - the wonder topping. Slawsa® and SLOTDOG together make your hot dog Slawsome!
