Default Smart’s Smoked BBQ Beans

Had several folks ask me for my simple smoked baked bean recipe, so I figured I'd put something together.


- 2 - 28 oz cans of Bush’s Original Baked Beans
- ½ medium sweet onion
- 2 tablespoons of mustard (or more if preferred)
- ½ cup brown sugar (more or less depending on your tastes)
- Package of bacon saving 5-6 slices for top
- Favorite pork rub
- Aluminum pan and foil. Pan I use is 10 3/8"W x 12 7/8"L x 2 1/2"D
- Serves 6-8 folks

- optional -1 large jalapeno (de-seeded and de-veined)
- optional –salt or sprinkle rub (to taste if needed)
- optional - pieces of chopped brisket, pulled pork, link sausage


Dice onion in ½”-1” pieces
Pull out five slices of bacon for top and put to side. Cut up half of the rest into small pieces
Dice jalapenos to your size preference (optional)
Saute all lightly to give them a start on cooking.

Combine baked beans, mustard, onions, bacon, brown sugar and any optional ingredient, in the alum pan and mix thoroughly. Take rub and sprinkle a light layer across the top. Mix thoroughly again and then level beans in pan.

Take 5 slices of raw bacon to cover across the top of the beans. Sprinkle your favorite rub again across the top of the beans.

Smoke uncovered for 2 hours at 250…. Take cooking scissors and cut up top layer of smoked bacon in small chunks and mix in the rest of the beans…. cover for an hour in foil and put back in smoker. Pull stir and salt or sprinkle rub to taste if needed ( I don't). If you want it darker add another 30 minutes of smoke at this time.

Thought it needed some more smoke and color so I added 30 minutes of open smoke. Then I covered and pulled it to eat.
