  1. How big of a pkg. for the smokies?

    • Good question. I’m not sure why I didn’t have that in the recipe! I used 2 14-oz packages but a 28 oz. package or 2 16-oz packages would be fine too. Really depends on which brand you get, they come in a few different sizes! :)

  2. Sounds great! I want to make it this weekend. What chili do you use???

  3. Instead of chili sauce…. mustard and grape jelly.  Sounds weird, tastes great!

  4. I really loved it

  5. Few years back all I could find was smokies made with Apricot preserves and bar b-q sauce. Now all recipes are with the grape jelly. I think the recipes with the cranberry sauce sounds good. The grape jelly doesnt sound as good. Will make with the Apricot preserves in few days for a snack table at birthday party.

  6. I really like making these and am always amazed about the grape jelly.There is something about adding it that totally makes these a hit. We have people over for cards, and hey always get eaten quickly!

  7. Haven’t made these yet but just wondering how spicy they are?  Have had them at parties but don’t remember them being spicy.  Just see the chili sauce and made me wonder.  I like “mild” spice.  Would this be too hot?


  8. I know everyone males these with grape jelly. But it has a certain “whang” I don’t care for. I much prefer some peach preserves instead.

  9. Hi Chrissy
    I love Jesus too!!  He is my complete joy.
    Thank you for sharing your recipes.  Looking forward to trying the crock pot ham.  Sounds delicious.  God Bless you

  10. I make these every year! Instead of the grape jelly you can use a can of cranberry sauce! Gives it that little extra zing! Happy New Year!

  11. I have only ever made these with bbq sauce and grape jelly. What brand of chili sauce do you use or would you recommend? These sound really good! I would love to make them for Christmas eve!!! Thank you!
