These smoked hot dog burnt ends are “off the hook” good and I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised at just how tasty they were as well as how easy they were to whip up.
I always get a few “correction emails” when I call anything burnt ends that aren't brisket so I feel the need to throw in a disclaimer.
Here's the disclaimer: I am fully aware of what burnt ends are and that they are traditionally made from cooked chunks of brisket point. It is my belief that there is nothing wrong with using that same process on OTHER pieces of meat such as hot dogs, pork belly, etc. to make delectable things to eat.
Smoke, Wood, Fire: The Advanced Guide to Smoking Meat – Unlike the first book, this book does not focus on recipes but rather uses every square inch of every page teaching you how to smoke meat. What my first book touched on, this second book takes it into much greater detail with lots of pictures.
It also includes a complete, step-by-step tutorial for making your own smoked “streaky” bacon using a 100 year old brine recipe.
