MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 23, 2014

This has potential ... unfortunately, I used Oscar Mayer Mini Smokies, but they don't taste anything like the smoky links I remember from years ago; they are very bland and didn't really add anything to this dish. If I can find a more flavorful sausage, this would probably be much better. Also, the cooking time given is way too long; the sausages were shriveled up and the baked beans were starting to dissolve. I think 4-5 hours on Low (as opposed to High) would be plenty. I will definitely try this again, though.
