For the hot dogs

  • 4 Sausages
  • 4 Hot Dog Rolls
  • Left over Chilli (from the OTT Chilli recipe)
  • Grated cheese
  • American Mustard
  • Ketchup

For the Beer Onions

  • 2 Small onions sliced into half moons
  • 2tbls olive oil
  • 200mls of beer



Set your bbq up for the canyon method, i.e coals on one side and none on the other which creates a cool zone to control flare.


Grill you sausages until they reach an internal temp of 160F or 72C and are golden brown.


Heat your chilli in a pot while the sausages are cooking


To make the beer onions heat the oil in a frying pan and soften the onions slightly, add a little beer and simmer until it evaporates (similar to making a risotto) repeat until all the beer is used up and the onions are soft and sweet.


Slice the Hot Dog rolls add your sausages and load with your toppings of choice, drizzle with ketchup and American mustard.
