Independence Day is almost upon us, and what better way to show America you love her than by learning how to properly grill a hot dog.

No matter how great you think you are at grilling wieners, you're wrong.

CHOW shows you how to spiral-cut your dog, and explains why it's the superior grilling pattern. For one: It allows for even charring; for another: It looks damn cool.

Impress your friends and family! For once.
