Grill pineapple, let cool, then dice. Wrap your favourite kind of hot dog (chicken dog? cheese-stuffed sausage? up to you) in bacon, and cook to desired doneness. Brush the dog with teriyaki sauce. The sauce can be store-bought, or made at home by combining 1 cup of soy sauce and 1 cup of mirin with 1/2 cup of brown sugar and 1/2 cup of sake. Toast the bun, place the hot dog in the bun, and then top with the pineapple, diced red onion, and a drizzle of teriyaki.
