For this post, the author didn’t feel photos were necessary to demonstrate putting weenies in a crock pot. I have the instructions pasted below from her post. If you need my help figuring them out please let me know.
      Have a great day!

      1. This crock pot hot dogs trick is awesome for feeding a crown on a budget! I’ve pulled it out many times to put on a “hot dog bar” for our large family gatherings. It’s a real handy one at kids’ b-day parties and large get-togethers! I personally add beef broth (mix up some bouillon) and a couple drops of liquid smoke to the pot to make my cheap weenies taste even better. 🙂
