Sweet + Smoky BBQ Crunch Dog


Smoky BBQ Sauce:

  • 1 cup good-quality ketchup

  • 2 large cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons dark amber maple syrup

  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cider vinegar

  • 1/2 cup beef stock – we will grab beef stock

  • 1 teaspoon smoked sweet paprika

  • Coarsely ground pepper

Oil & Vinegar Slaw:

  • 1/2 pound coleslaw mix or 1/4 head green cabbage, shredded

  • 1/2 small red onion, very thinly sliced – nearly shaved thnly sliced

  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 1 teaspoon celery salt or celery seed – thinking celery seed may look nice for appearance purposes

  • Kosher salt and pepper


  • 8 Hot dogs, such as Hebrew National, boiled, griddled or grilled

  • 8 good quality hot dog buns

  • A handful of crunchy potato chips, such as Cape Cod, crushed in your hands


For the BBQ sauce, combine all the ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer and cook at a low bubble for 15 to 20 minutes.

For the slaw, in a small bowl, combine the coleslaw mix and red onion. Add the vinegar, oil, and celery salt; season with salt and pepper, and toss to coat the veggies with dressing.

To assemble, place a hot dog in the bun and spoon over a good dose of BBQ sauce. Top with some slaw and crushed chips.
