In a large bowl, mix bread flour, rice flour, salt, and sugar.

Skewer a whole hot dog for a regular corn dog, leaving 2 inches for a handle. For a combo dog, cut a hot dog in half and skewer it with a cheese block. Pat the skewers dry with a paper towel.
In a wide, heavy pan, heat 1-2 inches of peanut oil to 330˚F/165˚C.
Dip a skewer into the batter, wrapping it around the hot dog. Use wet fingertips to pinch off excess dough and smooth it evenly.
