Chipotle-Maple Sugared Bacon Wrapped Smokies
Thanksgiving is at the top of my list of favorite holidays. To be reminded of the many things I have to be thankful for and given the opportunity to reflect on each one. Visits from family, friends, lots of laughter, the sound of children giggling and playing and then there's the roasted turkey, dressing and mashed potatoes. It's simply glorious. For my family, we always look forward to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in the morning and then we move on to the football game in the afternoon. Perfect game day food simply has to be included in our food preparations as well as something wrapped in bacon. In this case BHG's classic Sugared Bacon-Wrapped Smokies fits the bill nicely.
Living in NC we are well known for our love of pork barbecue. The sauces that accompany our barbecue are specific to region. For example, in Eastern NC you'll likely find a tangy sometimes spicy, apple cider vinegar based sauce. In the Western part of North Carolina, you'll most commonly be served a sweet tomato based sauce.
