Lil Smokie Variations

Anyone have any good smokie sauce recipes? I can always do the BBQ sauce, or chili sauce and grape jelly- BOOORRRINNNNGGG, but I like making new things. I found one on the net (and even found a new site to add!) that called for cranberry sauce, and I think I may also add a few fresh cranberries and/or orange zest, if I use the recipe. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Shannon, here is a great recipe that was posted originally by jkath. I made it last year for the SuperBowl and it was a great hit. You could substitute the lil smokies for the kielbasa.

Jack Daniels Kielbasa

1 kielbasa (the real stuff, no turkey, no light....)

Boil in water 20 minutes to get the fat out. Dry on paper towels & cool. Cut into large-ish bite sized pieces.

In a pan, stir 3/4 cup ketchup, 3/4 cup light brown sugar & 1/2 cup Jack Daniels. Cook on low to med-low. When it's bubbly, add kielbasa. Cook, stirring about every minute or two for at least 45 minutes. (you don't want to scortch it) so it cooks down to a nice saucy consistency.

These are great appetizers. However, they are just as good if you make it the day before, keep in the fridge & then heat & serve.

Shannon, I slice up kielbasa and then put it on a piece of puff pastry add a small tea. of mustard fold the pastry to form a triangle and bake..I'd think you could do the same with the smokies and they would tste great with a sweet dipping sauce..

This is my own recipe for sweet and sour sauce. I hope that you like it. It is one of my favorites.

Sweet and Sour Lil Smokies

1 large package of lil Smokies
1 can (13 ½ oz.) pineapple chunks
½ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon ginger
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons soy sauce
½ cup vinegar

Drain pineapple and reserve liquid. Reserve pineapple chunks. Mix together brown sugar, ginger and cornstarch. Combine 1 cup of reserved pineapple liquid, vinegar, and soy sauce in pan. Bring liquid to a boil and whisk in brown sugar mixture. Stir constantly until mixture is thickened. Add lil smokies and reserved pineapple. Stir until lil smokies and pineapple are heated through.
