9 Unique Hot Dog Recipe Combos

Summertime is Hot Dog Time!

For some, summer may be “technically” coming to a close, but if you’re anything like the team here at GrillJunkie then grilling season is never over. In fact, we’re still in peak hot dog months until Labor Day. This 3.5 month period is when Americans eat the most hot dogs out of the entire year at an estimated seven billion hot dogs nationwide. Also, summer is not “technically” over until September 21, so let’s get some great hot dogs on the grill!

The hot dog is a summertime staple, a must-have for tailgates and grilling outdoors in general. The history of the hot Grilled Hot Dogsdog is juicy. In fact, the hot dog has been around for over a century, but foodies still seek its perfection. Ketchup and mustard are no longer good enough; the hot dog has gone gourmet, and has come a long way from being considered simple “ballpark food.” Hot dog enthusiasts seek recipes to take it to the next level.  Plain hot dogs with minimal toppings will pass when you’re out of condiments in the fridge, but if you have the time, why not spice it up?

Personal Creations cooked up 9 gourmet variations on the hot dog and shared them in this handy hot dog toppings graphic. Much like their previous Grilling Around The World infographic, this one explores great topping variations and some with international flare too. Check it out below:

So which sounds best to you? We all know that the only thing that makes cheese better is more cheese, so perhaps animal style looks the most tasty? Or perhaps a nice heap of vegetables on the Vietnamese style seems the most scrumptious? Perhaps the only way you can know is to make all of them yourself.

How to Make Perfect Grilled Cheese on the Grill

Perfect Grilled Cheese on the Grill

When the team here at GrillJunkie thinks of summer, burgers, brisket and ribs come to mind and awesome grilled and BBQ recipes are created and shared with our readers. But did you know that making grilled cheese on the grill can take what many view as an American classic to new heights? The folks at fix.com, specifically Richard Wachtel, has shared with us a hot new view of the grilled cheese sandwich, taken outdoors, and cooked on the beloved grill.

Variations of the grilled cheese sandwich have existed for centuries. But it wasn’t until the 1920s – when inexpensive processed bread and cheese became available – that the sandwich gained popularity in America.1 Today we consider the cheesy novelty an American classic.

A perfect grilled cheese sandwich – with a slightly crunchy, toasted outside and ooey-gooey inside – is a great grilled cheese,grilled cheese on the grill, Grilljunkiecompanion to a bowl of tomato soup during the winter. But the storied sandwich isn’t limited to cold weather. Why not whip up a grilled cheese on the grill?

With “grill” right in the sandwich’s name, you’d think this cooking technique would be foolproof. But making a grilled cheese on the grill can be tricky at first. Without following a few key guidelines, you may have a charred, burned sandwich instead.

Ready to move your grilled cheese making to the great outdoors? We’ve compiled a list of grilling tips specifically for grilled cheese, plus some innovative variations to take your sandwich to the next level.

Tips for Making the Perfect Grilled Cheese

There are three crucial techniques for making the perfect grilled cheese on your outdoor grill: diverse heating zones, the right ingredients, and the “shred and spread” approach to cheese.

Diverse Heating Zones

Set up your charcoal or gas grill for different cook zones. You should have three zones, each with a different amount of heat. One zone should be low heat, another zone should be medium heat, and the last zone should be high heat. The three-zone setup allows you to move the grilled cheese to appropriate heat levels at different stages of the cooking process. To achieve the zones, follow these instructions:

For charcoal grills:

  • Low Heat: There should be no charcoal. This zone is the furthest away from the high-heat zone.
  • Medium Heat: There should be no charcoal. This zone is between the low-heat and high-heat zones.
  • High Heat: This zone houses all of the charcoal. Coals should be ash white when you transfer them from the charcoal chimney to the grill.

For gas grills:

  • Low Heat: Use the rack as your low-heat warming space.
  • Medium Heat: Set one burner to medium-low heat.
  • High Heat: Set one burner to medium heat.

Perfect Grilled Cheese – The Right Ingredients

No matter what grilled cheese recipe you make, use the following ingredients:

Thickly sliced bread is essential for a grilled sandwich. Normal, pre-sliced sandwich bread may crumble on the grill grates. Since the bread is thicker than the slices used for a conventional grilled cheese, remember that it will take longer for the cheese to melt. That’s why it’s important to utilize three grilling zones.

Plenty of oil or butter is essential to keep the bread from sticking to the grill grates. Plus, fat helps the grilled cheese stay moist. Though a quick spray of cooking oil will suffice for a stovetop grilled cheese, it won’t be enough on the grill. Use approximately ¼ tablespoon per slice of bread.

Shred and Spread Your Cheese

The best way to achieve the perfect bite of cheese and bread every time is to make sure the cheese extends all the way to the corners of the sandwich. Shred the cheese and evenly coat the bottom of each slice of bread.

What You Need

Grill
Fuel charcoal or propane
Tongs
Metal spatula
Sauce brush
Panini press (optional)

Ingredients:
2 thick slices of bread
1 small block of cheese
Butter
Olive oil
Sauce brush
Panini press (optional)

Directions:

1) Prepare your grill: Fill the charcoal chimney half way. Leave it until all of the coals are ash white.

Pro tip: Do not use lighter fluid. Crumple up newspaper into a ball and place in the charcoal chimney. You can find charcoal chimneys in the grill section of the hardware store.

2) Once the coals have turned ash white, dump all the coals on one side of the grill and close your grill lid.

Pro tip: Make sure that you have some additional charcoal in case you need more.

3) Once the internal temperature reaches 250 degrees, brush your grates with olive oil to prevent sticking.

Pro tip: Make sure your grill dome thermometer is accurate: Place a thermometer probe as close to the food as possible and about 1 inch above the grill surface. Some probes may have a clip that grasps a grate rod. Other probes can be clamped in place with metal office clips or clips from the local hardware store. If the thermometer is off, place an additional thermometer right on the grill grates for an accurate read.

4) While the grill heats up, grate the cheese. About 1 cup of shredded cheese should be perfect for one sandwich. Brush the bread with melted butter or olive oil.

5) Place the bread in the medium zone of your grill for approximately 2 to 3 minutes or until the bread is lightly toasted.

6) Evenly distribute the shredded cheese on top of one slice of bread. Position the second slice of bread on top of the cheese. Place the sandwich on the grill over the medium to high heat section for approximately 2 to 3 minutes or until the cheese starts to bubble inside the sandwich.

7) With a metal spatula, move the sandwich to the low heat zone for an additional 3 minutes.

8) Remove the grilled cheese from the low heat zone using a metal spatula. Cut the bread diagonally with a sharp knife and serve hot.

Grilled Cheese Combos

While a few squares of American cheese and a couple of slices of white bread can constitute a grilled cheese, there are endless combinations you can try. With different types of oils, bread, proteins, fruits, and vegetables you can make a grilled cheese to suit your food personality. Here are some out-of-the-box ideas to spice up your next grilled cheese sandwich.

The grilled cheese sandwich is simple and straightforward. Consider taking your sandwich out to the grill for a new take on the classic lunch staple. And instead of a typical cookout, host a grilled cheese party. Have a variety of cheeses, spreads, fillings, and breads, and allow guests to choose which ingredients they would like on their grilled cheese. Remember to use three heating zones, thick bread, and plenty of butter or oil for the perfect sandwich. Enjoy!

For more detail on this BBQ Sauce Review, including a History of BBQ Sauce as well as the many upcoming BBQ Sauce Reviews and Grilling Product Reviews on our schedule, read on!

First Up: A Bit of BBQ Sauce History

The precise origin of barbecue sauce is unclear. Some trace it to the end of the 15th century, when Christopher Columbus brought a sauce back from Hispaniola, while others place it at the formation of the first American colonies in the 17th century.

References to the “saucy” substance start occurring in both English and French literature over the next two hundred years. South Carolina mustard sauce, a type of barbecue sauce, can be traced to German settlers in the 18th century.

Not Far Enough Back My Friends! Think this is pretty far back in time, huh? Well, think again. The idea of putting sauces on food goes back much, much further. In fact, according to Harold McGee’s superb book On Food and Cooking: The Science and Lore of the Kitchen, in 239 B.C., Chinese Chef I Yin, in “Master Lü’s Spring and Autumn Annals” discusses the harmonious blending of sweet, sour, bitter, pungent, and salty, and the importance of balancing them harmoniously in sauces.Arawak Tribe - Grilling History,history of grilling,GrillJunkie,history of bbq sauce,bbq sauce reviews

“The transformation which occurs in the cauldron is quintessential and wondrous, subtle and delicate. The mouth cannot express in words; the mind cannot fix upon an analogy. It is like the subtlety of archery and horsemanship, the transformation of Yin and Yang, or the revolution of the four seasons.”

The Yin and Yang of mixing sweet and sour is, of course, a Chinese specialty, and at the heart of most barbecue sauces. McGee also quotes a Latin poem from 25 A.D. It describes a farmer pounding herbs, cheese, oil, and vinegar, and adding it to a flatbread. The paste sounds quite a bit like pesto genovese, and the flatbread sounds like a pesto pizza or calzone.

The first actual mention of the term “barbecue sauce” we have found was in the Bolivar Bulletin from Hardeman County, TN in 1871. The author of an article thanks a Dr. J.H. Larwill for:

“a fine lot of Barbecue Sauce, of his own invention. For fresh meats of all kinds it cannot be excelled.”

For a more detailed History of BBQ Sauce, we highly recommend the article from Meathead Goldwyn of AmazingRibs.com.

Kentucky Proud?: Deaf Man’s Bourbon Elite BBQ Sauce

  • Final Verdict and GrillJunkie™ GPR (Grilling Product Rating)

DeafMans-BBQSo let’s dig into the Deaf Man’s Bourbon Elite BBQ Sauce!

Outside the Bottle

This subcategory reviews the variables such as the attractiveness of the product, its overall visual appeal and/or how “perty” it is, etc. This subcategory does come with a GrillJunkie GPR rating.

  • Packaging & Labeling – Upon unpacking, we found the 16.0 oz. wide-mouthed glass bottle eye catching, boldly simple, sophisticated and regal with a subtle touch of upscale personality. You’ll find a mostly black background, highlighted with bold basics of the logo and the flavor type…in this case Bourbon Elite, a name that we loved. The package, labeling and overall design were complete and professionally designed. The labeling, nutrition label and back story were easy to read, yet overall a top-shelf step above most of the “in your face” cartoonish packaging out there without going too mainstream and generic. Bold, clean, simple and eye catching.

 

  • Story/Background – This is where the appeal increases dramatically. The team here at GrillJunkie has a passion for food, family and friends with a soft spot for those out there that love to cook and that have pulled themselves up from their bootstraps. So we certainly appreciate when the back story reads:

    Deaf Man’s BBQ sauce is more than a BBQ sauce, it’s a symbol for what we believe in, family, friends, gathering and sharing the precious time that we have. What better way to share this time with great food and great sauce… and even if the food isn’t so great the sauce will make up for it!

    Rasool choose Deaf Man’s as the name not to highlight a “disability” but to highlight it as his ability! Some say that being deaf may have heightened his other senses…Passed down from the Bayou bloodline; Rasool has had years to perfect his recipes. Using his Rasool-Raheem-Sauce-Master-300x300Grandfathers secret recipe and adding some Californian color, Deaf Man’s BBQ truly embodies the best of both worlds mixing Louisiana soul with California’s Edge! Legend has it that Rasool has more than 60 flavor combinations…if that’s the case we are in for a very tasty journey.

    The Uniqueness of the name and the vision are very different from its BBQ predecessors. Deaf Man’s BBQ wants to usher in a flavor revolution! One of the early slogans was “It’s not just BBQ sauce, it’s ANYTIME sauce!” Much how Starbucks made great tasting coffee highly accessible, we feel this should be the same with your BBQ condiments and related products. After all we are based out of California where about 300 days a year are BBQ ready (365 if you don’t mind using your oven on the few days it rains). No more going to the store and buying 3 sauces to achieve one great taste…Let us do the work!

    Aside from great tasting products, Rasool and his Partner Felix Bellamy believe in community and giving back to children and adults with disabilities as well as minority charitable organizations. The goal is to strengthen the communities Deaf Man’s is connected to while aiding in research and advancement for these groups. The name “Deaf Man’s” represents everyone, no matter what color, shape or creed, it represents that no matter who you are, you can do “it”, and with hard work, passion and dedication you can achieve whatever your “it” is!

    When you’re gathered around your table, grill or campfire surrounded by loved ones, we hope to be a product synonymous with your enjoyment and good memories. We plan to achieve our goal of a flavor revolution one product, one customer, and one family at a time.

  • Specific detail related to the Deaf Man’s BBQ Bourbon Elite BBQ Sauce reads:

    “Our Bourbon BBQ sauce is smooth, smoky and aromatic with just a hint of Kentucky Bourbon for a full-bodied flavor.” 

  • Logo & Graphics – The GrillJunkie Product Review team found the Deaf Man’s BBQ Bourbon Elite logo classic, professional, appropriate and effective as it combines a regal charm with an obvious love for food, friends, bourbon and family. What you’ll find is a Deaf-Mans-BBQ-Sauce-Reviewsclean, high-end sauce label with a sophisticated logo and eye-catching yet subtle graphics.

 

  • Cyber Marketing Presence / Web Site: As we found the physical outside product appeal to be solid, we were very impressed with the company’s web site presence and utility. With such a great looking product that will inevitably draw consumers to the site to not only learn more and order a few packages and/or visit their retailers, it seems that the web personality brims with uniqueness and charm as well.
  • GPR#: 4.4/5.0 Firepots

Inside the Bottle

This subcategory reviews important variables such as the Flavor Profile, Consistency and Taste before being cooked and after. This subcategory come with a GrillJunkie GPR rating as well.

  • Dominant Taste / Ingredient Match – The Dominant Taste of this BBQ Sauce matched well with our expectations from the product label and all-natural, preservative and gluten-free ingredient list. A strong tomato-base, a well-balanced vinegar taste tone with a perfectly balanced complement of honey, molasses, hickory smoke, earthy spices and of course Kentucky bourbon. With such a gamut of ingredients, easily knocked off balance by a poor mixture ratio, we were prepared to experience a BBQ_Sauce_Reviews_Trifecta_Sweet_heat_sidepotentially off balanced BBQ sauce formula. We were pleased with the sweet to heat balance. We expected more off-balanced sweet-heat with the bourbon and habanero but were pleased that we weren’t dealing with yet another sugar drenched sauce that overwhelms the overall balance of the remaining earthy flavors.
  • Pre-cooked Flavor Profile – A strong and balanced Flavor Profile. We found an appropriately thick, smooth and dense tomato-based sauce that unveiled layers of smooth bourbon, spice, heat, crispness and acidity, complex honey and molasses tones, sugar, smoky hickory wood flavor undertones and tangy hot pepper but not an overwhelming and off-balancing amount of vinegar. Although some of the sweetness and texture comes from honey and molasses we found a well-balanced mixture of natural sweet tomato, caramel-rich saucy spice and savory warmth that leaves you hankering for more to drench on a smoked brisket recipe, some ribs or to just dip into as a sauce.
  • Consistency and Texture – Although we would categorize this BBQ Sauce as slightly thick, we found that the extra texture of the sauce, due to the rich honey, molasses, anchovies, tomato puree and habanero pepper created solid differentiation. The thickness of the base, the earthy sugar sources and vinegar balance and the spice define the texture and consistency of this BBQ sauce. A good thing when trying to get an even crust on our baby back ribs and/or for simply using as a dipping sauce.
  • BBQ Sauce on Ribs GrillJunkie,BBQ ribs recipe,history of grilling,history of bbq sauceSlathered & Cooked Flavor Profile – We found that the appropriately spicy depth of the habanero, bourbon undertones, garlic, onion and molasses awakened when the sauce was slathered on and cooked, especially during longer periods such as on our 13 hour BBQ brisket recipe. However the lack of the boorish and typical off the chart vinegar kick was replaced by a deeper tone of earthy and caramelized sugar, a deep undertone and the awakening of the bourbon and habanero pepper tones.
  • GPR# – 4.5/5.0

The Verdict

Overall, the GrillJunkie Product Review Team give the Deaf Man’s BBQ Bourbon Elite a 4.4 out of 5 GrillJunkie™ GPR Firepots. Officially a Hot product on our 5 point scale!

Deaf man's bbq sauce reviewsThis BBQ Sauce is a well-balanced, deeply aromatic, sophisticated, bourbon-based, preservative free, tomato-based, classic style BBQ Sauce that surprises the tastebuds with an earthy undertone of the “kick” of rich habanero peppers, rich bourbon, smoky hickory wood and caramelized honey and molasses while not overpowering us with an off-the-chart and typical vinegar/tomato/sugar mixture.

The Deaf Man’s BBQ Bourbon Elite has both Outside Bottle appeal that delivers Inside the Bottle with an impressively balanced formula of a tomato-anchored sauce blended into a slightly hot, smoky-sweet yet tangy vinegar medium with embedded and layered depth of complementary pepper undertones, rich caramelized sugar, tangy and crisp citrus and the fresh and earthy aroma of bourbon and well balanced earthy spices.

The GrillJunkie BBQ Sauce Reviews team is very much looking forward to reviewing more of the unique sauces and spices that come from the Deaf Man’s BBQ Sauce lineup and product team. Stay tuned!
