  • 1 (14 ounce) package Little Smokies (about 40 links)
  • 1 pound bacon each strip cut into thirds
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup ketchup


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat a 9-inch x 13-inch baking dish with nonstick spray.
  • Working with one Smokie at a time, wrap in bacon and secure with a toothpick. Place on prepared baking dish. Repeat with remaining smokies and bacon.
  • Bake for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, whisk brown sugar and ketchup together in a small bowl.
  • Remove Smokies from oven. Using tongs, transfer each Smokie to a plate or bowl. Drain bacon grease from dish.
  • Transfer Smokies back to dish. Brush or pour barbecue sauce over the Smokies. Return to oven and bake until hot and sticky, about 15 minutes longer. Serve warm.
