What’s the Best BBQ Sauce for Lil’ Smokies?

The best thing about this recipe is you can use whatever BBQ sauce you like. You can use a honey BBQ sauce this time and next time use a Jack Daniel’s sauce. Change it up every time you make them.

One of the most popular barbecue sauces used for this recipe is the Sweet Baby Ray’s brand.  It is often inexpensive and just a good classic sweet but spicy flavor.

How Can I Serve This Without Being Messy?

Want to make these without being messy? Serve the cooked Lil smokies with toothpicks. Either place the smokies on a plate with toothpicks already in them or you can have a cup next to them for guests to use when eating them.

Can These Be Turned Into Pigs in Blankets?

If you want to use these to make an even more flavorful version of pigs in a blanket, follow the recipe and cook them in the crockpot. Once they are done, you can take them and then make them like pigs in a blanket. Use crescent rolls that you cut to size and wrap the small sausages inside. Once rolled, bake.
