These saucy Asian BBQ lil’ smokies are a cinch to make and will be the big hit of your next party!
Lil’ smokies are a classic. It’s usually my sister who brings them to a party but this time I brought them and gave them a new twist. Asian BBQ lil’ smokies are officially a hit at our house and they’re really so easy to make. The best part is that you can just throw them in the crockpot and enjoy the results a few hours later!
A few of my favorite things to have on hand for game-day recipes are Guldens mustard, Hunts ketchup and Hebrew National hot dogs – I like to know that my hot dogs are 100% real meat if you know what I mean. What are your favorite must-haves for tailgating season?!

With grilling season upon us, everyone is craving an all-American hot dog. What makes a kosher hot dog different? It’s all about what makes the cut (and what doesn’t). Hebrew National is choosy about what goes into their franks – only 100% pure kosher beef so you know what you’re getting and they taste great.
