From delicious and nutritious Fat Free Franks to GrillMaster Hearty Beef hot dogs, Ball Park Franks has the varieties to keep everyone satisfied. Here are some Grilling Basics for Beginners:

Make sure you’re equipped with these master grillers’ tools of the trade:

Tongs or spatula for turning grilled foods
Disposable aluminum tray for heating side foods like baked beans
Wire grill brush for cleaning grill
Insulated flame-retardant mitts for handling hot coals and grill
Long-handled tongs for handling briquets


  • Keep food from sticking by rubbing grill with vegetable oil or non-stick cooking spray.
  • Leaving space around each food item on the grill allows for even cooking and smoke penetration.
  • Turn meat just once on the grill.
  • Use tongs or a spatula to turn food. Hot dogs can lose moisture and flavorful juices when pierced by a fork.
  • Keep a spray bottle filled with water handy so you can spritz flare-ups, which can blacken your food.
  • Brush the grilling surface (once it’s cooled) with a wired brush to remove any stuck on food.
