"I made up this recipe many years ago, because I loved the corn dogs you buy at carnivals but could not find a recipe for them. Great served with mustard."

These are awesome. Since the hot dogs are smooth, you need to roll them in flour first. This will help keep the batter on. I poured the batter in a mason jar (quart size) and dipped the hot dogs in the jar.It's alot easier than rolling them around. Thanks

As a former carney, I LOVE these! The one thing I miss most about being a part of a traveling carnival company is the hand-dipped corn dogs. I have a couple of suggestions for achieving corn dog perfection: 1) Dry the hot dogs with a paper towel before dipping them in the batter. This way, you don't need to coat them with flour or anything before dipping. 2) Make sure your batter is ICE COLD. This will make it thicker and it will resist "melting" off into the oil before it firms up from frying. 3) Use regular Farmer John hot dogs...not the all-beef kind (that's what the carnival food wagons all use!). 4) Omit the black pepper from this recipe. It's not needed.

Very yummy. I've found that putting the prepared batter in a drinking glass helps ease the process... it's the perfect size tool to batter a hot dog!
