J-Dawgs Copy Cat Recipe

JdawgsHave any of you people ever had the privilege of eating at J-Dawgs? Some of you are probably thinking, what in the world is J-Dawgs?? But those of you who have been to Provo, UT are probably salivating now 😉  J-Dawgs started as a simple little hot dog stand started by a BYU student and has been a thriving business ever since. Side note: I lived right behind the original J-Dawgs stand (which also happened to be behind the most wonderful place ever called “SmartCookie”. SmartCookie = heaven on earth).

Anyways, what made them so successful was its “secret sauce.” Put that on a hot dog and BAM! Suddenly it’s the most amazing hot dog you’ve ever eaten in your life.  Here is a copy cat version of the recipe!



  • 1 pkg Beef bun length hot dogs
  • 1 pkg hot dog buns (get some good quality ones!)


  • 3/4 C ketchup
  • 3/4 C barbeque sauce
  • 1/4 C honey
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder


J Dawg Directions

  1. Mix up sauce by mixing all “sauce” ingredients together
  2. Put hot dogs on the grill
  3. Once you flip them, cut them in a crisscross pattern (as shown in the picture)
  4. Put  hot dog in a bun and SMOTHER it with the sauce.
  5. BAM! You now have an incredible copycat JDawg. Enjoy!
