Preparation

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 350 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.

Heat a large Dutch oven on the stove top over medium-high heat. Cook the ground beef until browned and cooked through.

Add all chili ingredients, minus the chocolate and limes to the Dutch oven. Cover with lid and place Dutch oven into the grill for 4 hours stirring every hour.

Remove Dutch oven from grill and turn up the grill temperature to 450 degrees F (set to 500 degrees if using a WiFIRE-enabled grill). 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!
