Youre hosting a bonfire or an end-of-summer soiree. You have to cook enough food for 20 or 25 people, but you realize that you need to do it incredibly quickly. People are getting hungry and angry. Those frozen appetizers didnt stretch as far as you thought they would. (Oops!)
You know you have hot dogs in the fridge, and those will cook up fast. But you need to cook all of them at once and do it evenly. If you serve some guests before others, a riot just may ensue.
The solution to this very specific predicament? Apparently its a rake.
Yes, the common household rake. According to Delish, people are skewering 20-plus hot dogs on this gardening tool and roasting them over a grill or open fire. In theory, theres no reason why this hack wouldnt work, especially if you straighten out the edge of the rake so the hot dogs dont split and curl. All it takes then is some muscle.
