"I made this on the stove instead of crockpot and it cooked up quickly. The smoky links come in 14 ounce packages, not 16 anymore. Since my family are meat eaters, I used 2 (14 ounce) packages of Eckrich smoky links and it was good. It still tasted like baked beans to us, good, but the sweetness still was reminder that it was baked beans."

"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."
