Syracuse White Hots

Syracuse White Hots

These are the ultimate hot dogs for upstate New York tailgating. They make a pop when you bite into them that can sometimes get confused for the crack of a bat. (Ok, that’s weird, but it’s a delicious and fun eating experience). For our spin on White Hots, we enjoy using all of the Zweigle’s fixins’ such as mustard and sweet relish, just to make it extra authentic. Make sure to wash it down with an ice cold Genny Cream Ale. 

Makes 2


  • 2 split top buns

  • 2 white hot style hot dogs (such as Zweigle's)

  • Yellow onion, diced

  • Sweet relish, to taste

  • Spicy brown mustard, to taste


  1. Preheat your grill to high heat.

  2. Add the hot dogs to the grill and cook until nearly blistered. While they cook, add your buns to the top rack.

  3. Once the hot dogs are properly cooked, build your white hot hot dog by adding the dog to the bun, and then top with onions, relish and mustard, to taste.
