I've made these many times now and they're amazing! People are always requesting we bring this to parties and pot lucks. A few tips to make the process easier:
I fill a deep baking dish with brown sugar, then dump in the smokies and mix with my hands. I usually just cut the bacon in half instead of thirds and this helps them stay together without toothpicks. I take a bacon half and roll it right in the pan with the smokies and sugar. This ensures that everything is completely dredged in sugar. Always line the cookie sheets with heavy duty foil! This will make clean up way easier. I also have a metal cooling rack that fits perfectly into the foil covered cookie sheet. I put the smokies ontop of the rack and it keeps them out of the grease. I usually cook for 40-45 minutes, then broil to crisp them up a bit. Make sure youre watching closely when your broil! Usually only takes about 3 minutes to brown them nicely. After taking them out of the oven I toss them in the slow cooker, sprinkle with a little more sugar, and put on warm. This makes them easy to transport and keeps them nice and warm. We NEVER have left overs!
