Made these will non-alcoholic beer this past weekend and they turned out great!

sorry, after checking my facts (which I should have done before commenting) flaming alcohol does not cook off the alcohol. In fact, even after simmering alcohol after 3 hours it still retains 5% alcohol. Hope this helps, and sorry for the misinformation in my previous post.

The only true way of cooking off alcohol is to flame it (flambe). Any other cooking method, including boiling it, will only remove a small portion of the alcohol. But, unless the kids are eating a ton of the hotdogs, with only 1 cup of beer in the entire recipe, it should be fine for kids.

does the alcohol burn off so adults and children can enjoy

I would like to bake these. Not fry!

Let me know if you try baking them, I hope it will work. You might want to put a cooling rack on a cookie sheet, so they will bake evenly

I don't use any alcoholic beverages so I substitute with "Club Soda". Low sodium and lots of carbonation plus nuetral taste. Hope this helps.

What can be used in place of the beer. Family member, a recovering alcoholic.

Non-Alcoholic Beer would work...such as O'Douls :-)

If you do not want to make this recipe @ all there is another great recipe here: Root Beer Dogs using pancake mix and root beer! It is a great recipe they look like small corn dogs when cooked.

Remember that once alcohol is cooked in food the alcohol is all evaporated, so there is no alcohol content in the cooked food, only the flavor.

There is a non alcohol beer.

Sounds good to me. I must admit never saw this combination but will try it. Another hot dog recipe added to my collection.
