I loved pigs in blankets as a kid, so when we had a can of crescent roll dough and some cocktail smokies in the fridge I was excited to try a smoked version of my favorite childhood meal.
The smoke from the fire really adds to the flavor of the smokies and turns the crescent dough a delicious deep orange crispy shell. So easy, and so good.
1. Start coals or fire up your grill. Get it to about 300 degrees fareinheit. We started about two dozen coals, added some hickory chips for the smoke, and piled everything up on one side so we could cook over indirect heat on the other.
2. Separate your crescent dough into individual triangles and roll your cocktail smokies into the dough.
3. Skewer them, leaving a little room between each roll so the dough can brown.
4. Place on the smoker over indirect heat until the dough is a golden brown and cooked through.
5. Serve with mustard, ketchup, barbecue sauce, or whatever you’d like. They are so full of smoky flavor they are delicious on their own as well.
They were a huge hit! Can’t wait to make them for my nephews and see if the little ones like them as much as I did.
