Directions

  1. Preheat the barbecue to high heat. Bring a saucepan of water to simmer over medium-high heat, then drop in smokies and cook for 5 minutes. Take out smokies and grill them for 5 to 7 minutes, or until plumped up and starting to ooze cheese. While weenies are grilling, heat up Choucroute and toast hot dog buns. Place a layer of Choucroute in each bun and add a smokie on top. Serve.
