vegetable oil, for cooking
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 (16-ounce) package of beef hot dogs, each cut crosswise into 3 pieces
1 1/2 cups of self-rising cornmeal mix
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
40 (6-inch) wooden skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes
1. In a large pot, pour the vegetable in to a depth of 4 inches. Heat the oil to 350°
2. Place the cornstarch into a small bowl. Prepare the corn dogs by placing 1 piece of hot dog onto the end of each skewer. Dredge a hot dog in cornstarch, tapping off the excess.
3. In a large bowl, mix the cornmeal mix, flour, and sugar. Whisk in the buttermilk until smooth.
4. Using the skewer, dip the hot dog completely in the batter. Holding the end of the skewer, place each hot dog in the oil, frying until golden brown (about 2-3 minutes). Place the hot dog on a paper towel to drain off. Then, repeat with the rest of the hot dogs.
