Nothing says “4th of July” like a classic American hotdog. It’s simple, delicious, and a canvas for a variety of toppings. Here’s how to make your classic dog stand out:

  • Ingredients: All-beef hotdogs, traditional white hotdog buns, yellow mustard, ketchup, and sweet relish.
  • Method: Grill your hotdogs on the CasusGrill until they have beautiful char marks and are sizzling. Serve in a bun with a line of mustard, a squirt of ketchup, and a spoonful of relish.
  • Tip: Toast the buns on the grill for a minute before serving to add a nice crunch and warmth.

2. New York Street Cart Dog

Bring a taste of New York City to your backyard with the famous New York street cart dog, known for its pushy flavors and snappy sauerkraut tang.

  • Ingredients: All-beef hotdogs, sauerkraut, onion sauce, and spicy brown mustard.
  • Method: Cook the hotdogs until crispy and juicy. Pile on warm sauerkraut, a generous helping of onion sauce, and a line of spicy brown mustard.
  • Fun Fact: Onion sauce, a sweet-sour condiment, is what gives the New York dog its signature taste. It’s made from slow-cooked onions simmered in a sauce of tomato paste, vinegar, and spices.

3. Chicago-style Hotdog

The Chicago-style hotdog is a colorful array of tastes and textures, famously “dragged through the garden” for its variety of toppings.

  • Ingredients: All-beef hotdogs, poppy seed buns, neon green relish, chopped onions, tomato wedges, pickle spear, sport peppers, and a dash of celery salt.
  • Method: Boil or steam the hotdogs as tradition dictates, but give them a quick grill on the CasusGrill for extra flavor. Assemble the hotdog in the bun with each topping for a burst of flavors in every bite.
  • Tip: The key to a perfect Chicago dog is to never, ever add ketchup!

4. Southern BBQ Dog

Down South, BBQ reigns supreme. This recipe brings a touch of Southern barbecue flair to your hotdog.

  • Ingredients: Smoked sausages or hotdogs, BBQ sauce, coleslaw, and soft hotdog buns.
