Pretzel Dogs

Pretzel Dogs


-1 1/2 cups warm water

-1 tablespoon sugar

-2 teaspoons salt

-1 tablespoon active dry yeast

-4 1/2 cups flour

-1/2 cup butter, melted

-10 cups water

-2/3 cup baking soda

-Fire & Smoke BBQ Company Estes Ave.

-8 all beef hot dogs



1. Combine the warm water, sugar and yeast into a small bowl. Let sit until it starts to bubble/foam. In a separate large bowl, add the flour, salt, and butter. Give that a stir and then add in the yeast mixture. Mix until it starts to form a dough. Add more flour if needed.

2. Transfer the dough into a lightly oiled bowl. Let sit in a warm dry area for about an hour to let it rise. It should double in size.

3. Preheat the oven to 450F. Also start to boil a pot of water and baking soda.

4. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface. Cut into 8 pieces. Roll each piece into a string of dough that is about 12-18 inches long, depending on how big your dogs are. Start at one end and wrap the dough around the all beef hot dog. There shouldn't be overlap on the dough, but it should cover all but the ends. Repeat this for all the hot dogs.

5. Put the pretzel dogs into the pot of boiling water and baking soda for about 20 seconds each. Be sure not to do more than 2 at a time. Remove them and place onto a lightly oiled baking sheet. Season the tops with Estes Ave. Then place them in the oven to bake for 12-14 minutes. Let cool, serve and enjoy!
