What's up guys , Pedro here and on this video , we're gonna be pickling some hot dogs coming up right after this , ok ?
Those of you that know me best know that I love just about anything pickled .
Um except for pickled pigs feet .
I tried those one time .
I cannot , I cannot stand , I spit them out and I threw the doorways .
Sorry for that uh picture .
So I've been watching a lot of pickling videos on youtube and I've come up with a recipe that I tweet just a little bit to make it my own .
This recipe is really simple and I'll put a uh put it in the description below , ok ?
So I've already pickled some little smokies with the same brine .
Uh and they came out great .
So I'm anxious to try them with the hot dogs , ok ?
So we'll , we'll go ahead and cook the brine and while the brine's cooking , I'll go ahead and cut up the hot dogs .
So you wanna bring the ingredients to a boil ?
I'm putting in four cups , 04 cups of white vinegar .
Uh You can use apple cider if you want to , you want to , uh , one cup of Frank's red hot sauce .
Uh , of course you can use uh , whatever hot sauce you want to .
Let me see if I have a spectrum .
They got me a spatula .
Get all of that in there .
Oh , yeah .
Um , tablespoon and a half of garlic minced garlic .
And three tablespoons of pickling spices and a quarter cup of sugar .
Believe it or not .
That is it stir this up , bring it to a boil , let it cook for about five minutes while this is cooking .
I'll go ahead and cut up the , the hot dogs .
So I just got some bar s uh hot dogs from Walmart and I bought a big pack of them .
This will probably do two quarts , I hope .
And we'll see .
Oh , ok .
This is uh , simple .
Cut them in half , cut them in half again , in half again .
So you got quarter , you got quarter pieces , cut them in half and then cut each half in half .
So you got quarter pieces and that's about the size you want right there .
Let me get a couple of jars and we'll stuff them in the jars .
And as soon as that brine is done , we'll let it cool down a little bit before we pour it into the jars .
So I got my jars ready .
Should have had them already .
Looks like I'm gonna have about four quarts .
This big pack I got , yeah , maybe not .
It looks like it's gonna go quicker than I thought .
Let's see .
Half have half stuff .
This joker right here .
Oh yeah .
Now it's gonna be about two I think cause that's probably that right there .
About half the package .
Maybe even a little bit more .
I might and leave a little room for the wind .
Let's try this one now .
Oh yeah , these are gonna be good .
Okie Dokie .
We are almost done .
Brian hasn't started boiling yet .
That was a big pack of hot dogs and it filled , I'm gonna stuff them into two jars .
It filled two jars .
That was perfect .
Perfect for two jars right there .
So I hope I let this cool down enough , uh , that it won't shatter my jars .
Uh , we're about to find out , put it in the sink though .
So if it does shatter , I should probably won't be wearing safety vests .
Well , I haven't shattered yet .
I think we're good to get .
I'll go fill the other one .
We're gonna have quite a bit of brine left over .
Yeah , I better do that right there .
Not a whole lot enough for about another jar though .
About , there was enough prime for about three quarts and we've got two court jas , um , four course .
I made sure that my jars and my lids were sanitized or clean little tip .
I learned from a shotgun red is once you've poured your brine into your jars and got them full and everything , turn them upside down .
And that way the , uh , you see how there's some up here at the top here that , that aren't in the liquid , they're not in the brine .
Um , so they're not really getting pickled .
If you had it the other way around , the top ones would not be getting pickled .
So if you turn them upside down , it's gonna pickle it from the , from the top actually up or you know what I'm trying to say ?
Anyways , turn them upside down it , it'll pickle better and when you go to eat them , you'll turn them back of this direction .
Of course .
And by the time you get to the bottom , those have pickled as much as the top ones if that makes any sense .
Oh my God , this smells so good .
My wife had begged to differ .
Oh , yeah .
Oh , yeah , I cannot wait to try these .
Like I said , I've already pickled some , these little smokies here .
These jokers Rye here .
I've already pickled these and I've already tasted these and they are awesome .
So I can't wait to try these uh hot dogs .
