Your friends and family are at your home on Thanksgiving day and you are looking for easy to fix snacks to keep them going before dinner is served.
2-3 lbs. Little Smokies
1 1/2 cans beer
1 (280z.) jar B-B-Q sauce
1 tbsp. prepared mustard
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp. ketchup
Place Smokies and beer in a skillet, cover and simmer 10 minutes.
Drain Smokies and place in crockpot. ( I keep the 1/2 can beer aside to use if the sauce becomes a little too thick) or drink it. I hate to see anything go to waste.
Mix B-B-Q sauce, mustard, vinegar, brown sugar and ketchup and pour over Smokies.
(I preheat this mixture (in a glass bowl) in the microwave for about a minute to give it a head start)
Turn cooker to low, and provide your guests with toothpics to eat the Smokies.
For those of you in other countries who do not know what Little Smokies are: they are small cocktail sausages.
