First, cut each slice of bacon into three pieces, then wrap one piece of bacon around one cocktail sausage. Secure it with a toothpick.
Next, to a small bowl, stir together the brown sugar and paprika, then pour 1 cup of the mixture into the bottom of your slow cooker bowl. Load the wrapped smokies into the bowl and sprinkle the remaining mixture over the top.
Finally, cover and set to HIGH for 3 hours. You’ll want to stir every so often to make sure all the smokies get some time near the edges of the slow cooker – that is where they really brown.
