Yield: 
8 servings
Ingredients: 
  • 2 lbs 
    ground beef
  • 1/2 cup 
    coffee rub
  • 1 8-pack 
    Kings Hawaiian hot dog buns
  • Salt and pepper
  • Pecan-apple coleslaw
  • Kona Coffee BBQ sauce, for serving
Directions: 

Prepare pecan-apple coleslaw and coffee rub.
Divide ground beef into 8 equal-sized portions. Place each portion onto a sheet of plastic wrap, and flatten each into a 6- x 3-inch rectangle. Season with salt and pepper. Roll up with plastic wrap to form a log, and twist at both ends to compact. Place coffee rub in a small pan or in another vessel with a flat bottom. Carefully remove log from plastic wrap, and roll in the coffee rub to coat. Repeat with remaining 7 portions of beef. Place coffee-rubbed dogs on a baking sheet lined with parchment, and rest in the refrigerator uncovered until ready to grill.
Preheat a stovetop grill pan, an outdoor gas grill, or prepare a charcoal grill. Grill dogs until they reach desired degree of doneness.
Toast buns if desired. Place burger dogs in buns, top each dog with pecan-apple coleslaw and a spoonful of BBQ sauce and serve.
