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.


SMART’S SMOKED BBQ BEANS

- 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
chunks

Directions

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.

Enjoy….

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

That sounds awesome. I'm going to try smoking some macaroni and cheese today and see how that goes.

Looks good J

That's pretty much how momma makes em, minus the smoke. Everyone loves them. She uses her grandmothers black skillet. Now you have me craving whistle berries.

I'll see is I can talk her into letting me throw her pan in the smoker next time.

Default Smart’s Smoked BBQ Beans

Also I should mention...the salt in the bacon will add salt to the whole mix so don't over salt or season before it has all rendered down and you taste it. I don't ever add salt but some folks might. Just lightly dust where I said in the directions and you'll be fine. You can see my seasoning on top is not very heavy for that very reason.

Amazing how close this is to my wife's beans except we never thought to put them in the smoker and just do it in the oven. Sure about to try smoking them though!

Looks darn good! It is close to same recipe we use for oven beans. The only difference I see iswe also dice bell peppers with the onion and cook them a little. In addition to the mustard we use a shot of barbecue sauce or ketchup. I need to try them smoked!
