How to Cook a Feltman’s Hot Dog

Posted by Michael Quinn on

Ever wondered how to cook a Feltman’s hot dog? It’s not complicated, and there are plenty of different options.


You should know that Feltman’s hot dogs are already pre-cooked when they get to your table. After the sausage is produced, it is hung in a smoker. Smoke from the hickory chips inside the smoker helps give the sausage its delicious flavor. Other companies might use artificial flavoring to achieve a smoky flavor, but Feltman’s sticks to a smoking method.

The microwave isn’t your only option for heating up Feltman’s hot dogs. The barbeque is a great way to heat them up. Keep the flame on medium, in case the hot dog’s lamb casing bursts. The lamb casing is all-natural, and not soy protein concentrate or semolina.

The oven is another option. Heat your oven up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, then heat the hot dogs for 8-10 minutes. Both sides of the hot dog should be brown. You can also try the broiler. Leave the hot dog in the broiler for 3 minutes.

A skillet is another way to warm up your hot dog. Put some aluminum foil on the skillet, underneath the hot dog. You might need to use a little water as well. Heat it up in the skillet for five minutes.

Hopefully these tips will help you enjoy your all-natural Feltman’s hot dog more.
