Bacon-Wrapped Brown Sugar Smokies

"i take this to our christmas party at work every year, it's expected, and it disappears very fast. no worries about the bacon, it cooks quickly and creates a wonderful sauce w/the brown sugar. and you can prepare it the night before and just plug the crockpot in a few hours before you need to serve it."

    If you cook these in the crockpot does the bacon get crunchy done or is it soggy?

    These were very good. I ended up using about 1/2 to 3/4 of a cup of brown sugar. I think they cooked 4-5 hours on low and they were great. Sweet, smokey and salty. Thanks for the recipe!

    I make these all the time but I bake them in the oven for about 45 mins. The brown sugar gets alittle carmelized like and crispy in places on the smokies and the sauce is yummy. I have never made them in the crockpot but I would imagine you wouldn't get the crispy carmalized stuff in the crockpot as you do the oven. So just wanted to share in case anyone wants to try them in the oven. They are YUMM!!!!

    I have found that the brown sugar falls off easily, so I put the piece of bacon down, put brown sugar on that and then wrap the wiener with the brown sugar inside. It seems to stick more. Even if I burn these some, there is always none left over.

    Made this for the first time last night. Were really sweet, almost candied. Couldn't taste the bacon and were not crisp. Idk if I used too much brown sugar? I would make again with maybe less sugar and possibly spice it up with jalapenos.
