The broiler also works. I prefer them split when cooking; with ketchup & mustard.

Grilling is the best way to go, but in a pinch pan frying works just fine. I like to put a little bit of beer in the pan for moisture and flavor! I agree with pierino when it comes to splitting, better to keep them whole and juicy!

I'm a disciple of the Chicago red hot (dragged through the garden) as opposed to the NYC "Dirt Water Dog", so I will echo the advice on grilling. However, as a dog lover I'm adamently against splitting them. You want a hot dog that snaps when you bite into it. And a ketchup bottle should be nowhere in sight except maybe out in the trash.

I like to cook franks for all they're worth. When you've pan fried the outsides a nice brown, split them open the long way and fry the cut sides until everything is nice and crispy. Blot with paper towels. This has the effect of rendering out a lot of fat and adding more flavor. Of course, you don't have to cook them at all -- they're already precooked.

nCHome!
the microwave hot dogs tasted like this:

- Put the sausage in bread
- Wrap around with a paper towel kitchen roll
- 30 micro seconds for each sausage

warm, crusty bread, adisfrutar!

nCHome!
probá los panchos al microndas de esta forma:

- pones la salchicha dentro del pan
- envolves todo con una servilleta de papel del rollo de cocina
- 30 segundos de micro por cada salchica

pan calentito y crocante, adisfrutar!!

I love that you tagged it "hot gods" :)

So, there's grilling, which is probably yummiest but getting a bit chilly out for it! Grill pans would be a great sub here. If you have a gas stove, you can also stick one on a skewer or fondue fork and roast it over the open flame.

If you're not above microwaving, you can actually cook the dog in the bun, wrapped in a moist paper towel and poked with a fork a couple time.

Last, but certainly not least, you can "butterfly" (yes, cut the hot dog in half) it and fry it up in some peanut oil or butter.
