  • 1 14-ounce package beef cocktail wieners
  • 1 pound regular sliced center-cut bacon
  • 1/3 cup barbecue sauce of your choice*


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Wrap each cocktail wiener with a piece of bacon and arrange on the baking sheet seam side down.
  • Bake, turning several times, for about 40 minutes, or until the bacon is crispy and brown.
  • Remove from the oven and turn on the broiler. Brush the bacon-wrapped little smokies all over with barbecue sauce. Return to oven and broil for about 1 minute, until barbecue sauce bubbles.
  • Remove to a wire rack and cool on pan for at least 5 minutes. Skewer with toothpicks, arrange on a tray and serve.


*Holiday Variation - Use cranberry sauce instead of the BBQ sauce. Puree in a food processor or blender if you prefer a smooth glaze.
To store: Tightly wrap any leftovers and refrigerate for 2 to 3 days.
To reheat: Spread the bacon-wrapped Little Smokies on a baking sheet and cook in a preheated 350 degree F oven for 8-10 minutes, until heated through and sizzling.
