Make Some Bacon Wrapped Smokies For SXSW

This weekend Nerdist will be setting up shop at Banger’s Sausage House and Beer Garden in Austin, TX for South by Southwest! We’ll be there with our buddies Geek & Sundry and Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls in our own Texas-style Saloon.

Can’t make it to SXSW? Don’t fret, just follow along on Twitter and Instagram (and look for our videos every day this weekend!) and cook up some sausages at home. These little smoked sausages are the perfect Nerdist party food, what’s better than meat wrapped meat? Crack up the crock pot, settle in at home and follow all of Nerdist’s festivities online!

Bacon Wrapped Smokies
you’ll need:
– toothpicks
– crock pot

– 1 (14 oz) package Lit’l Smokies
– 1 package bacon, cut into thirds
– 1/2 cup brown sugar

Wrap each Smokie with a small slice of bacon and secure with a toothpick. Place in the crock pot.

Sprinkle the prepped Smokies with brown sugar. Turn the crock pot on to low for 4-6 hours and serve.

There you have it! Not super complicated, but definitely high on deliciousness. If you have your own great sausage recipe, perfect for a trip to Austin or a daydream about going to Austin, share it with us in the comments below. Or really any smoked meat, we won’t limit it to things in tubes. And check back here all weekend long for videos, interviews, roundups, and all manner of madcappery happening at the Legendary Digital Network Saloon happening at Banger’s. You might see somebody famous. (Spoilers: You totally will.)
