Awesome! A big mess to make and worth every single bit of it. Definitely use a broiling pan with slits so the fat and suagr can drip through and away from the sausages, otherwise you'll have a greasy, soppy mess. I used center cut bacon as someone suggested..I used 3 lbs. of the bacon for 2 pkgs. of the Lit'l Smokies, cutting each piece of bacon in half (crosswise). I dredged the bacon in brown sugar before rolling it around the sausage, then put the rolls in a ziploc bag with more brown sugar coating all of them (as suggested.) They sat in the fridge all day and were soaked in syrup when I went to broil them . I broiled on the center rack of my electric oven for 10 to 12 minutes on each side (til browned and crispy), sprinkling with more brown sugar after turning. I've never seen anything I've made disappear so fast. Served with the dipping sauce someone else suggested-1/4 cup mayo, 1/4 cup red chili sauce, and a 1/2 cup of brown sugar...it's perfect with them. The sauce needs to be mixed well ahead of time for sugar to melt and flavors to meld. Absolutely delicious appetizer! Try it for your next gathering!! (P.S., I thought these were more of a 'manly' appetizer, but they were equally popular withe the women.)
