    I need to take hot dogs for a crowd. I wonderded if I can grill them first and then take them in a crock pot to keep them warm? Do they become rubbery or dried out? Do the ones on the bottom burn? Should I put a little water in the botton?
    thanks for any info!

    It's the perfect way to hold them. Put some liquid in the bottom. I put beer in there, but your taste may vary. Water with a bouillon cube would be fine too. About 1-2". You'll see the professional brat and hot-dog carts do it the same way.

    I've seen hamburger patties done the same way. A friend of ours makes a mix of BBQ and 7 Up to put burgers in. Keeps them warm and juicy and has a good flavor. Water and a bouillon cube sounds great for hot dogs, etc.

    Boil First, Then Grill.

    Some of the best hot dogs we've had were boiled up nice & fat & kept in a pot simmering by the grill. Right before serving, they went on the gas or charcoal grill briefly, just for flavor.

    Yum.

    Just make sure that the crock pot is already heated when you put the hot dogs in.
