  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat. Pour barbeque sauce into a square baking dish, and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the ground beef, egg, onion, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes using your hands. Pack enough meat around each hot dog to completely cover it, but not too thick. Wrap 2 slices of bacon around each beef covered hot dog, and secure with toothpicks.
  3. Lightly oil the grilling surface, and place the bacon-wrapped hamburger covered hot dogs on the grill. Cook for about 10 minutes, turning occasionally - but carefully, until the beef is cooked through and bacon is nicely browned. Remove from the grill, and roll in the dish of barbeque sauce to coat. Remove toothpicks, and serve on hoagie rolls.

GREAT! I've cooked these for friends and family. When people see what I'm preparing, they generally give me an odd look, but love them when they are served. But, hey...whay stop at a triple bypass? I sprinkle lightly crushed pork rinds on top for the full coronary!

I really wasn't impressed with this. It was missing flavor and very oily.

I really enjoyed this recipes. It is certainly an artery clogger. I didn't grill these because it is too cold to grill them outside this time of year. So I cooked them up in a skillet on the stove. They turned out great! Also make sure to use regular cut bacon not the thick cut because the burger meat will cook up faster then the thick cut bacon. I made that mistake the first time I made them.

These were so good but hard to get your mouth around. The second time we made them we split the hot dogs in half length-wise and used half for each one. We pre cooked the bacon and laid a strip on each hot dog half and covered that with the meat. We also used regular hot dog buns. It was much easier to take a bite of the second ones.

these are delicious. i saw these featured on an episode of Bar rescue but they didnt give a real recipe, so i looked it up. the only thing i changed was they split the hotdog and put cheddar cheese in the middle then wrapped with beef and bacon. sooooooo goooooood

I made these a little differently than the recipe, because of the reviews that stated the beef was bland. I used my normal hamburger recipe for the grill which is ground chuck, Worcestershire sauce, minced onion, garlic powder, onion powder, sea salt, fresh cracked pepper and a soft stick of butter combined into the mix. I used Nathan's hot dogs, as they're my favorite and compared to the pic, mine turned out quite a bit thicker than the ones pictured. They do take a considerable amount of time to grill. Considering the thickness, I soaked and used wooden skewers cut into thirds, instead of toothpicks. I would recommend bbqing them on low and the lid closed but keeping a close eye on them as the flames flare up quickly! These took me about 30 mins to grill, on low. They were pretty good, the men of the house loved them. Thanks! :)
