I really must be behind the times because I just started making these, but at least I had the benefit of reading all the reviews for mistakes and triumphs. My first try at these were good, my husband loved them as he loves anything he shouldn't be eating, cholesterol levels, you know.
My second try was even better. I was trying to figure a a way to make the brown sugar stick better and cut down the amount of bacon used (party pooper...that's me). I partially froze my bacon so it would cut easier. Then I cut it in thirds and then stacked the bacon in 3 stacks and cut it lengthwise thus stretching the amount of bacon to twice the number of smokies. It worked, there was really no difference in flavor at all. Plus, after wrapping the smokies I rolled them through a bit of maple syrup THEN rolled them through the brown sugar, the sugar really stuck. I foiled lined a sheet and sprayed the heck out of it, nothing stuck to the foil . I also put about 7 or 8 on a skewer and was able to turn them more quickly without having to turn the temperature up, no need to broil with the lesser amount of bacon it was nice and crispy. No need for a Crock Pot either, these babies were gone in a flash.
