Poached Hot Dogs

Hey Guys

I always found the idea of Poached Hot Dogs gross - I felts a Fresh Dog belongs directly on the grill but I decided to give it a try 1 day and boy was I surprised. I used a Slow Cooker to keep the temp around 160F and then after an hours - I removed it and put it straight into a pan with a little oil to char it a bit

Damn these were fine Hot Dogs - perfectly juicy and the texture was just right. Only 1 downfall I found - The water robbed the dog of a little flavour - normally the Hot Dog directly off the grill remains full of flavour - the store bought dogs we buy are spicy and hot - I found that after the Water Bath - the spiciness got toned down a bit and the salt was reduced in the final product.

I'm loving this new method but want to know how do I prevent the flavor loss or atleast add it back somehow.

Bare in mind we buy our dogs from the store so have no control of the spices or salt content.
