I think one of the reasons Americans love hot dogs so much is that they're simple. Take them out of their package, put them on a grill and, boom, they're done.

But, if you want to get a little fancy with your dog, the people at Chow have introduced a way to do that by spiraling it and you can bet I'm going to try this next time I grill up some dogs. Oh, and if you're thinking, "oh great- a cool idea that will take a lot of time," nope. All this involves is a skewer and knife.
