Author's Notes:
This recipe was tested in slow cookers (crockpots) with heating elements in the side and bottom of the cooker, not in cookers that stand only on a heated base.

For slow cookers with just a heated base, follow the manufacturer's directions for layering ingredients and choosing a temperature.

Poster's Notes:
For the smoked sausages, you may use turkey or beef, whatever is available or can substitute salami.
