How to cook How To Make A New Jersey-Famous Deep-Fried Hot Dog:
Test kitchen assistant, Justin, is showing us how to make a New Jersey-style hot dog. More specifically the deep-fried variety made famous by Rutt's Hut in Clifton, NJ. At Rutt's Hut they affectionately refer to their dogs as rippers, after the rips in the casing that burst open during frying.
We know what you're thinking, "Not for me, I like my hot dogs on the grill!" And we totally understand. But we also believe that you only think that because you haven't tried these. Frying hot dogs gives them an earth shattering snap, with an almost crispy exterior, while allowing the inside to be tender and perfectly cooked. They may look a little crazy, but we promise they taste amazing.
