"We LOVE these! I make these for many of our parties and gatherings through out the year. The only thing I do just a little different is to drizzle just a little bit of pure maple syrup over the top of the smokies at the very end of cooking and I keep them warm in a slow cooker on the warm setting."

"I am giving this recipe a 5-star rating but with the noted changes I have made based on the previous reviews. First I added 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper to the brown sugar. This resulted in a sweet heat combination which everyone loved. Secondly I made two batches but on both I speared the sausages individually and they were placed on the pan without touching each other. I think this is important for baking purposes to ensure the bacon gets crisp. The first batch I made I prepped hours prior to baking-only used about 3/4 of the brown sugar mix and placed them on a baking sheet lined with layers of paper towels. I transferred these to a baking sheet lined with foil and sprayed with non stick cooking spray. I topped them off with the remainder of the brown sugar/cayenne pepper mixture. The second batch I prepped and baked right away-but I did spray the foil with non cooking spray first and again I kept a small amount of space between all the wrapped sausages. I also reduced the temp to 375 degrees and I only baked them for 30 minutes. After baking for the 30 minutes I put them under a very hot broiler for about 2 minutes which crisped up the bacon and the sausages were perfect. I made a dip using 1/4 cup each mayonnaise and chili garlic sauce, 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/8 tsp black pepper. I made the dip hours ahead and stored in the refrigerator until almost serving time. Just prior to serving I added 1 T of freshly chopped chives. The Smoky bacon wraps were gone in minutes."

"Put a little melted butter in the bottom of your pan which keeps it from sticking and burning"

"I just made these this evening for our monthly Ladys night at Church. I flowed everything right down to the letter. First of all the brown sugar wouldn't stick to the bacon when I sprinkled the 1/2 cup over it. And I'm sorry but these were just not that great. I wished now that I would have just served these like I normally do with bbq sauce or mustard. I won't be making these again."
