You will need a medium size pack of lil smokies. 24-28oz
I'm cooling the brine before I add to smokies, dont want much fat in the brine.


Recipe......yeah real Penrose.

1/2 cup water
2 cups vinegar
1/2 tbs cayenne
1 tbs red pepper flake
1 tbs minced onion, dried
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp paprika
1 tbs salt
pinch of allspice

Bring brine to a broil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 5 mins. Dont pack the smokies in the jar. Pour brine over smokies...I opted to cool the brine first. Put lid on jar and put in fridge. Good in couple days, better in 7 days.
Nice! They look delicious 😋. Anything pickled is good!!!

Does the Lil smokies pull/suck the brine into them? Or do you have/need to poke holes with a tooth pick in the Lil smokies?
