Cowboy Charcoal is on the way to the South Carolina Festival of Discovery for a weekend of BBQ and Blues!
In addition to a BBQ competition and Blues Cruise, the SC Festival of Discovery hosts an annual hot dog eating competition. Last year, the winner ate 18 hot dogs in 12 minutes! While not everyone can be a hot dog eating champion, we agree that nothing says summer quite like a juicy hot dog fresh off the grill.
To honor the festival’s tradition, we’re giving you some ideas to dress up your dog. Next time you fire up the grill, try shaking up your traditional ketchup and mustard routine with these fun and delicious flavor combos! What do you like to top your dog with? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to share your favorite flavor combinations.
