BBQ Wieners\
Baltimore Area Council

Take 1 package of wieners and cut into bite sizes. Place in pan and let brown, but not dark. Add 1½ cups of your favorite BBQ Sauce. Let simmer for 15 minutes.

My favorite for this is I learned from a husband and wife Scouting team from Chattanooga, TN at a Philmont Training Course –

Take equal portions grape jelly and ketchup (you can adjust the ratio to your taste.  The directions actually say a jar of grape jelly (no size given) and a medium jar of ketchup), mix and add in garlic powder to taste.  Then cook the hot dogs in this sauce.  They recommend a #10 can to cook this over a fire in camp.  Delicious!!  Thank you Mitchell and Mignonne.  CD
