Hot dogs on an infrared grill?

I am giving some serious thought to an infrared grill. But I'm still not clear based on the heating method how things end up.

For example, I like my hot dogs charred on the outside (which I can do on a gas grill, or charcoal). Is this achievable on an infrared grill?

Same for steaks or burgers, anything you want a nice outside crust or sear on... any thoughts on your experience would be appreciated!
