Hotdog Grill

Hi.

I am looking to get a hotdog grill for parties that I host. Does anyone have experience with these? The one in the link seems like the best deal I could find...Adcraft RG-09 24 hotdog grill for about $230.

What do you think?
Thanks.

    Sorry, but it's indoors and has to manage itself.

    I was looking for some real feedback.

    Thanks.

    There are two options depending on your prep method: grilled or steamed hot dogs.

    The roller grill is more expensive but on "auto pilot". But dogs will dry out after awhile.

    The steamer will need to be checked periodically for water. A commerical full pan APW food warmer is around 150.00. I use perferated steam pans in mine within a secondary pan and rotate the dogs once in awhile.

    What type of volume are you planning to do? Then you can detemine the method to use and equipment needed.

    adcraft equipment is ok, it's not as well-made as say, star or apw but for occasional party use it should last a long time. roller grills work best on skinless dogs, cook in about 10 minutes and hold well enough for an hour or so depending on the brand of dogs you're cooking. one problem with roller grills is that they don't include a bun steamer...

    Thanks for the replies everyone.

    I would guess that I'll be serving around 75 hotdogs per party. This is a monthly party so figure minimum usage would be 12 times yr, but probably much higher.

    I think we decided on grilling over steaming our doggies.

    How important is a bun steamer? I could probably get a comparable device from target to heat/steam the buns for $30.

    Gene, post a link to your star.

    If you are going to be cooking 75 hot dogs then you should look for a larger roller grill. Unless everyone at the party is willing to wait 10-15 minutes for the dogs to cook. Check the manufacturer spec on how long it takes to cook a refrigerated hot dog. Most just say it cooks hot dogs in 10 minutes?

    Star Manufacturing makes a great roller grill but they are pricy as you go larger. There is always someone on EBay selling one.

    Once you steam your buns, you'll never go back. To keep with the theme of the party, you should by the bun warmer with the roller grill. If it's not important then a full size tray with perforated bottom will do. You can purchase one electric as mentioned above or use a Sterno type.
