Simply cook the smokies and add in the homemade BBQ sauce for a tasty appetizer ready in no time at all!

Little Smokies are pre-cooked bite-size sausages. So you are not cooking them but rather reheating them while allowing them to soak in the BBQ sauce. This is why this dish comes together in under an hour.
How many Little Smokies come in a package?
Generally, there are about 40 sausage links per package of Little Smokies. This recipe calls for two packages, which will give you about 80 sausage links. Plenty to feed a crowd!
