Tube Steaks College Style w/ Dad’s Hot Dog Chili
The chili used the usual suspects & certainly was not tame with the amount of cayenne & red pepper flakes used
The chili simmered for about 90 minutes to help the flavors blend
The hotdogs were simple. They were slit on all sides and marinated in some Worcestershire sauce while the grill heats
After being removed from the marinade the hotdogs received some Cajun seasoning powder
It was dark by the time I headed out to the grill so I broke in my new grill light from Sur la Table
The hot dogs & rolls are done and ready to get some chili
The chili was not what you would call tame & went well with the dogs spiced with the Cajun sauce
The dogs browned a faster than normal. I need to try them again & see if the marinade burned or the grill was too hot
A simple meal, hot dogs, chili & some chips, add a cold beer & it just doesn’t get any better

This recipe from Fred Thompson’s Barbecue Nation was really two recipes: a marinated hotdog and a chili made for hot dogs. The hot dog marinates while the grill is heating and just before going on the grill the dogs get seasoned with some Cajun seasoning. I guess just in case the chili isn’t hot enough. These were tasty hot dogs & not for the tame. I had a little trouble with them browning up faster than normal I suppose in the spirit of the Cajun seasoning I could say they were blackened. It might have been the marinade burning or grill may have been to hot for the time I cooked the first side. It didn’t matter the dogs were great and your taste buds certainly knew they were alive as soon as you bit into them. What I like is the chili can be made ahead and the hot dogs themselves take no extra time to prep, it is all done while the grill is heating.
