Tasted great. Only suggestion I have is to halve the sauce. I used a 56 ounce package of Smokies so I thought I would need roughly 25 ounces each of the cocktail sauce and the grape jelly. Turns out a 12 ounce jar of cocktail sauce and a 15 ounce jar of grape jelly made more than enough for all those sausages. Read More

This was not a hit! Usually around here if it has wienies in it it's a hit. Maybe it was the cocktail wieners not sure yet. I have frozen the sauce and plan to try it with meatballs????? Read More

I have several variations I make on this recipe; I heat up the ingredients in a microwaveable bowl 1st then switch it to the crockpot to keep warm for serving. For The Grandchildren: DO NOT use cocktail sauce -- instead I add to taste a couple tablespoons of prepared yellow mustard & a standard BBQ sauce... Read More

we used to have this when I was a kid. Everyone devours this. Mom always made this in a crock pot and let it simmer at least an hour or two before putting on the buffet table so the meat could really soak up the flavor of the sauce. Works great with Kielbasa as well(thats how Mom liked it best). Read More

Definitely needs adjusting! I used 2 (16 ounce) package of smokies 8 oz cocktail and 8 oz grape jelly they were swimming! Once I drained some of liquid out they were yummy! Also remember to dump your sausages on a paper towel to drain all the excess juice from bag BEFORE you add them to the jelly mixture. There is alot of excess liquid in those bags! Read More

What a great variation to the bar-b-que sauce recipe. I like this so much better. If you can get pass the cocktail sauce and grape jelly try adding a can of drained pineapple chunks. It's so good! Thanks Judy for the recipe! Read More

Don't be put off by the grape jelly!! and don't be afraid to try other variations. I have used red current preserves and added to it about 1/2 cup of barby sauce (any kind) even a couple tablespoons of honey I'm going to try a dash of A-1 steak sauce in it too!!! This is GREAT!!! Read More

This type of recipe is something my mom has made for years and years. She always used chili sauce instead of cocktail sauce and so do I. I also add 2 teaspoons of fresh prepared horseradish for a little bite but not overbearing and the juice of half a lemon. Just brightens the flavor a bit. Like other reviewers have said just because you massively increase the amount of wieners you don't have to match the increase with the sauce 1 for 1. I also like to brown the wieners in a frying pan before adding to the sauce. Read More
