  • Prepare your smoker for indirect cooking at 225 degrees F. 
  • Slather the hot dogs with the yellow mustard and season all over with the Sweet Rub.
  • Place the hot dogs directly on the grill grates, close the lid, and smoke for 1 hour.
  • Remove the hot dogs and slice into 1.5 inch pieces. Place the hot dog pieces into a disposable baking pan. Top with the butter, brown sugar, and BBQ sauce.
  • Increase the heat on your grill to 375-400 degrees F. Place the pan of hot dog burnt ends on the grill and cook for an additional 15-30 minutes, stirring regularly, until the butter is melted and the sugars have started to caramelize on the hot dogs.
  • Serve and enjoy!
