Smoky BBQ Bacon-Wrapped Dogs

Smoky BBQ Bacon-Wrapped Dogs


When your typical ballpark dog won’t do, try this pumped-up version. The hot dogs are rolled in a chile-spiked spice mixture before being wrapped in bacon and grilled. They’re served with two options for dipping: a tangy honey barbecue sauce and a lemony mayonnaise.
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
1 tablespoon honey
1 1/2 tablespoons cider vinegar, divided
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ancho chile powder
8 beef hot dogs
8 slices bacon
8 hot dog buns, split
1. Heat grill. Combine barbecue sauce, honey and 1 tablespoon of the vinegar in small bowl. Combine mayonnaise, lemon juice and remaining 1/2 tablespoon vinegar in another small bowl.

2. Combine brown sugar, paprika, cumin and chile powder in shallow dish. Press hot dogs into seasoning to coat; wrap each with 1 bacon strip. Insert toothpick in each end to secure bacon.

3. Grill hot dogs, covered, over medium-low heat or coals 12 to 15 minutes or until bacon is browned and hot dogs are heated through, turning every 2 to 3 minutes to evenly brown bacon. Place buns on grill during last 1 to 2 minutes of cooking to toast. Remove toothpicks; serve hot dogs in buns with sauces on side.
