  • Smokies
  • A skewer (metal or wood is fine)
  • A sharp knife
  • A package of Blue Dragon Honey Teriyaki Stir Fry Sauce
  • Hot dog buns
  • Your favourite condiments


  1. Grab yourself a skewer. I used a metal one because that’s what we use on the grill but a wooden one works just as well. Insert the skewer right through the middle of the smokie.
  2. While you are pushing the skewer through don’t worry if you go, well, askew along the way. Just re-adjust until you go right through the centre.
  3. Grab yourself a sharp knife. A good pairing knife works best. You don’t want anything too long or it gets awkward.
  4. Make your first cut about 1/4 inch from the end of the meat. Cut all the way through the meat until you touch the skewer in the middle. Now slowly start to turn the smokie, continuing to cut in a spiral pattern (cutting at a slight angle). Keep your spiral at about 1/4 inch and, again, make sure you are cutting right through to the skewer.
  5. This is one long continuous cut. Keep cutting until you reach about 1/4 inch from the other end of the smokie.
  6. Gently pull the skewer out.
  7. Preheat your grill to medium heat. Use a basting brush to cover the smokie (including inside the cuts) with the Teriyaki sauce.
  8. Grill, turning often until fully cooked. Cooking time really varies on the smokie. In normally buy ones that are already fully cooked so I just make sure to heat thoroughly. Read the package your smokies came in to be sure!
  9. Serve in a bun (if desired) along with your favorite condiments. If you are not a bun person you can also cook the smokies right on the skewers as well and serve that way.
