    I love these things, but almost never am where I can buy one. Consider different options besides the standard hot dog as well. ie; various types of sausage links.
    Saw this recipe, and I just had to share. Come on, who hasn't at one time or another, ate a corn dog and thought, I wish I could make these at home.

    8 hot dogs
    1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided
    About 8 cups vegetable oil, divided
    1 1/2 cups cornmeal
    1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    1 teaspoon sugar
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/8 teaspoon cayenne 2 large eggs
    1 1/4 cups well-shaken buttermilk

    EQUIPMENT: a grill pan; 8 wooden ice-pop sticks; a deep-fat thermometer

    ACCOMPANIMENTS: ketchup and mustard

    Oil grill pan, then grill hot dogs over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until lightly charred on all sides, about 5 minutes total. Transfer to a plate and cool slightly, then insert a wooden stick into each hot dog. Put 3 Tbsp flour on another plate and roll hot dogs in flour to coat, shaking off excess. Heat 3 inches oil to 350°F in a deep 3-qt heavy pot over medium-high heat.

    Meanwhile, whisk together cornmeal, remaining 1/2 cup flour, 2 Tbsp vegetable oil, baking powder, sugar, baking soda, cayenne, and 3/4 tsp salt in a medium bowl. Add eggs 1 at a time, whisking well after each addition. Whisk in buttermilk.

    Transfer some of batter to a tall glass, filling it almost to the top.

    Working in batches of 2 or 3, dip hot dogs, 1 at a time, into glass of batter to coat (add more batter to glass if necessary), then fry, turning occasionally, until batter is cooked through and golden-brown all over, about 3 minutes. Transfer corn dogs to paper towels to drain. Return oil to 350°F and refill glass with batter between batches.
