    I know most of you already have your best bean recipe, and I would never try to say that this one is the best bean recipe out there.

    What I will say is, when we have guests the bean pan always ends up empty.

    Also for the new folks on here who haven't found that best bean recipe, I think this one is a good place to start.

    Here is the recipe.

    Al’s smoked beans

    28 ounces Bush’s Original baked beans  + a little water

    1 onion coarsely chopped

    2 Fresh jalapenos chopped with seeds & veins removed

    1/4 cup raw sugar

    1/8 cup Dijon mustard

    1/2 lb. bacon cooked until crispy then chopped (save bacon grease)

    Mix everything together including bacon grease.

    Smoke at 250-275 for 2 to 3 hours or 225 for 3 to 4 hours, until the color is right. 

    It only has a few ingredients & it can be tweaked to fit your own taste very easily.

    If you want it sweeter, just add more sugar, tarter, add more mustard, hotter, keep the jalapeno seeds, thicker, eliminate the water, healthier, leave out the bacon grease.

    Or add your special ingredients to make it your own.

    Here we go. That is all the ingredients.


    I just put about 1/4 cup of water in the bean can to rinse out everything in there & add it to the beans.


    Here's what it looks like ready to go.


    I usually put a rack of ribs over the top so the beans catch the rib drippings.


    I also mop the ribs with a mix of apple juice & BBQ sauce, which also drip into the beans.


    There starting to get some color.


    We moved the Lang under the canopy, because the afternoon storms were on their way.

    Had a couple of drinks & smelled the smoke.


    This what I like them to look like when they are done.


    You just can't have beans all alone, so a couple of ribs & some tater salad.


    Thanks for looking folks!

    Thanks Gary!

    I had the welding gloves on because I had to pull the top grate out to mop the ribs easier.

    Those grates are screaming hot!

    I have a poker to use in the firebox, maybe next time I'll just use that to pull it out.

    I'm still learning.
