<br> Heating Instructions for Hot Dogs <br> To reheat on the grill: Place hot dogs directly on the grate over direct medium-low heat. Close lid and grill 4-5 minutes, turning occasionally. Hot dogs are done when they are cooked through lightly charred. <br> To reheat in the microwave: Roll hot dogs in a paper towel and microwave for 25-30 seconds. Remove and let sit for 5 seconds. <br> Carolina Cole Slaw: You'll need 1 lb chopped cabbage. Place chopped cabbage into a non-reactive bowl. Add enough Caroline Cue Sauce to wet the chopped cabbage (about ½-cup to 1 cup of sauce per pound of chopped cabbage, as needed). Let sit for at least 30 minutes or overnight covered in the refrigerator. Stir before serving. Reserve extra sauce for adding to pork. Slaw will keep for up to 3 days, covered in the refrigerator.
