Cooking Ingredients

  • 4 cups vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup corn meal

  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 package hot dogs
  • 1 egg
  • 16 skewers, sticks

  1. Place your dutch oven on the stove and add your vegetable oil. Turn on medium heat. Add candy thermometer and allow oil to heat to 350 degrees.

  2. Into a bowl add all dry ingredients (corn meal, flour, salt, sugar & baking powder). Mix with a whisk to combine.

  3. In a small bowl, add egg. Beat it until broken and mixed. Next add in honey and beer. Combine all ingredients.

  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix together. (It will form a thick sticky paste). You can either add this paste into a cup or keep in bowl for the next portion, completely your choice.
