Burnt end hot dogs are so simple but so tasty. They are an alternative to the beef brisket burnt ends that bbq aficionados crave. They also do not take 15 hours to cook and require a bank loan to purchase. Hot dogs are slathered in mustard and then coated with your favorite bbq rub. They are smoked for an hour using you smoking wood of choice. Remove, slice and put in a hotel pan. Add butter, bbq sauce, a little brown sugar and a dash more of seasoning. Return your dogs, in pan, to a direct hot heat and cook for an additional 15 minutes stirring frequently. They will become hot, sticky and oh so decadent. This is a comfort food suitable for cocktail parties, kids parties and just plain snacking on the couch while watching your favorite television show. I was a little skeptical about this dish at first. After seeing how easy and what a comforting flavor this dish will bring. Your inner child tastebuds will reemerge to bring out happy smiles . This will be put in the recipe rotation.
