Bacon wrapped smokies

Discussion in 'Side Items' started by irish_smoker, Jan 5, 2007.

  1. This is something I tried a couple weeks ago and they turned out great.

    1 lb. of bacon
    1 package of small sausages (lil smokies was the brand i used)
    1 cup of brown sugar

    Cut the Bacon into halves or thirds (your preference depending on what bacon your using) and wrap each smokie in a piece of bacon. You can put a toothpick through as well but it's not usually needed. Lay them all out, smoke for about an hour or so at 225. Pull them out, spread them out on a foil lined cookie sheet, and generously sprinkle with brown sugar. Bake at 400 until the bacon is good and crispy and the sugar is bubblin.

    Wow that does sound good.

    I bet it is very health for you too right? wink wink
  3. C’mon Cheech, I bet those little smokies have half the fat of a regular hot dog! That is certainly a health conscientious endeavor…don’t ya think? (albiet they are 1/3 the size of said furter), let us not not quibble about the small stuff! :roll:

    Oh alright, hey doesn't smoking take the bad stuff out of the meat?
  5. I never said it was the healthiest thing in the world, but they sure are good.
  6. A good dipping/basting sauce for those would be a mix of sweet hot mustard and currant jelly. Start with 1 part mustard to 2 parts hot mustard (I use Hickory Farms). Warm untill jelly is melted and mixture combines. Oldie but goodie from Mom :) .
