Burger King is going to the dogs — hot dogs, that is.
The burger chain announced on Wednesday that it was adding grilled hot dogs to its menu, looking to use the kitchen equipment it already has — its hamburgers are flame-broiled — and offer more variety on its menu.
“Instead of boiling a hot dog in water, we can grill it just like you would at a backyard barbecue,” said Alex Macedo, president of the company’s North America division. “It made all the sense in the world for us.”
Burger King, the No. 2 burger chain behind McDonald’s, has most of the ingredients needed to dress its dogs, made from a proprietary recipe using 100 percent beef, already at hand in its stores. Mr. Macedo said about the only new ingredients were buns and relish.
“We also have to chop the onions a little differently,” he said.
