How do you roast hot dogs over an open fire? Seems pretty easy right? Start a fire, put a hot dog on a stick and hold it over the fire, right?

Well, not so fast. Accoring to David Draper at Field and Stream, you need to let your fire burn down until you have a pile of glowing coals and then start roasting that hot dog.

You don't need a burnt-on-the-outside, cold-on-the-inside hot dog for dinner!

Hold the skewer high, not too low near the flame or hot coals to get a slow cooked dog. Hot dogs are pre-cooked, so you're really just heating the hot dog through and giving it the great look of "char" ..

Add some mustard, ketchup, diced onions, pickle relish and you're calling my name!
