With several toppings, including caramelized onions, bacon, and barbecue sauce, these can be customized for a range of diners, from those who like their dogs plain to those who want them fully loaded and hearty enough to fuel a day out on the range.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 large yellow onion, cut into half moons
4 bison* or other hot dogs
4 potato hot dog buns
About 6 tbsp. mayonnaise
About 2 tbsp. spicy brown mustard, such as Gulden's
About 4 tbsp. barbecue sauce
1/2 cup shredded white cheddar cheese
6 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
How to Make It
Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat on a camp stove, or over a charcoal or wood-fired grill heated to medium (350°; you can hold your hand 5 in. above cooking grate only 7 seconds). Add onion and cook until deep golden and very tender, stirring frequently, about 20 minutes.
Grill hot dogs until slightly charred all over, about 6 minutes, turning occasionally. Add buns and grill, turning frequently, until warmed and lightly charred, about 3 minutes.
Spread buns with mayonnaise and drizzle with mustard and barbecue sauce. Set hot dogs in buns.
Sprinkle cheese on top, followed by caramelized onions and bacon.
*Find bison hot dogs at highplainsbison.com or Whole Foods Market.

I made this with beef hotdogs and it was still amazing. Really, really easy. I made it on a grill pan indoors. I sliced the onions into 3/4 slices and put them on the pan alongside the hotdogs. Once done, I removed them and put the buns on. All had really nice grill marks. I did mix the mustard, mayo, and barbecue sauce all together (super tasty) as a 'special sauce.' I would definitely make this again!!
