5. GET GRILLING

How do you like your hot dogs? We think John Morrell Hot Dogs are great with ketchup, mustard and even barbeque sauce, but we've heard rumors of surprising toppings like salsa, sweet chili sauce and cream cheese. Hit the grill and see if you can come up with a new delicious sauce combo.
