When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to High and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.
Heat a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Cook the ground beef until browned and cooked through.
Add all remaining chili ingredients minus the chocolate and limes to the Dutch oven with a lid on top. Put the Dutch oven into the grill for 4 hours stirring every hour.
Remove Dutch oven from grill and set the grill to High. Preheat with the lid closed, for 10 minutes. Grill the hot dogs for 8-10 minutes.
While the hot dogs are cooking, mix the juices of the 2 limes and the chocolate into the chili. Pull the hot dogs off and assemble the chili dogs with cheese and sprinkle onions on top. Enjoy!
