THANKS for this recipe! Everyone loved these and they were the very first things to vanish. I used two packs of 12-oz Hillshire Farms beef smokies and two packs of center-cut Oscar Mayer bacon. Trying to be budget-conscious, I cut the bacon into thirds. That worked because the end-pieces weren't just fat. If the bacon were all fat on the ends, some of the smokies would have ended up with all fat. One strip of the "thirds" was too small, but we had enough without using those. (That bacon became breakfast.) I used a ziploc bag to coat everything, prepared it the day before (which is GREAT to be able to do), and drizzled the juice that had accumulated in the bottom of the dish over the smokies and sprinkled with a little extra brown sugar when I went to cook them. I baked them at 350 for 15 min each side, then broiled for 2 min to crisp them. I then placed them (and the remaining juice) in a buffet warmer set on low. I did this 3 hours before our party. They held up very nicely until devoured by the crowd. Great recipe for doing ahead!
