Hot Dog in a Milk Carton

Fun way to cook hot dogs while camping. Kids love doing this.


  • 1 hot dog
  • 1 hot dog bun
  • Empty, washed and dried half-gallon milk carton
  • Ad

  • Foil


Put the hot dog in the bun and wrap in foil. Place in milk carton, close top. Put in cool fire pit on its side and light the carton at the bottom. When the carton is burned down, you will have a cooked hot dog in a lightly toasted bun.

I'd be very concerned about the carton having potential for causing cancer activated while it's burning. Have you researched this at all?
