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!!
