These Barbecue Little Smokies are officially the easiest appetizer, ever. They take just seconds to assemble with zero prep and only 2 ingredients!
There is something insanely addictive about Little Smokies in Sweet Baby Ray’s Barbecue Sauce. To eat one is to eat a dozen. I cannot even stop myself.
Luckily, you can LITERALLY make a batch in minutes whenever your cravings strike. I recommend making a big batch.
Barbecue Little Smokies are always a hit for Game Days (March Madness and/or Super Bowl). They are also fun at birthday parties, especially for kids. What child doesn’t love a tiny hot dog on a toothpick? Super festive.
One time I paired them with my Boursin Mashed Potatoes and called it dinner: Bangers & Mash, the American Way. Super tasty.
On to the “recipe”…. as you’ll see from the pictures, there’s not much to it!

Little Smokies in a Crock Pot
(Need a crock pot? I’ve had this one since 2009 and just love it.)
This recipe doubles or triples easily which might come in handy… especially if you find yourself standing over the sausages in the kitchen, devouring them at the speed of light, and the game hasn’t even started yet.
It could happen to anyone.
