2 2/3 cup yellow cornmeal
1 2/3 cup  all-purpose flour, plus more for hot dogs
3 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoon baking powder
Coarse salt
Freshly ground pepper
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cup whole milk
2 quart vegetable or peanut oil, for frying
12 hot dogs

Whisk together cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon pepper. Stir in eggs and milk. (You will have about 5 cups batter.) Fill a large heavy pot, Dutch oven, or deep fryer with enough oil to submerge hot dogs; heat until a deep-fry thermometer reaches 360 degrees F.

Meanwhile, pat hot dogs dry, and insert a 10-inch bamboo skewer through each lengthwise; roll in flour to coat.

Dip 1 hot dog into batter, turning, until completely coated; let any excess batter drip off, and wipe away extra batter using your fingers so that hot dog is coated evenly. Lower hot dog into hot oil. Immediately repeat with 2 hot dogs.

Cook corn dogs, turning to cook evenly, until deep golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined tray, turning to blot oil. Working in batches of 3, repeat with remaining hot dogs and batter.

Oooh I've always wanted to attempt to make my own corndogs, maybe we'll do that this weekend actually because I want something different than the usuals.
