This Grilled BBQ Chili Dogs Recipe is a little different from regular chili dogs mainly because of using 2 different types of beans in the chili sauce mixture. This recipe will change according to the brand of barbeque sauce you use. This recipe does call for the use of brown sugar so if the brand of barbeque sauce you are using is on the sweet side you might want to delete the brown sugar, or add the sugar to taste. I used beef hotdogs for this recipe because in my opinion they taste a lot better. Outside of the chili sauce the rest of the condiments are pretty much optional; just top them with whatever you like.
