Baked Beans from SCRATCH Today (w/ Q-view) and BBR

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 

Today I'm making Baked beans from SCRATCH. I am so, so tired of beans from a can when I know I can make better. Look, truthfully, I am still going to eat beans from a can - and doctor them up to taste. I am hoping these will be rich, dark and tasty.


Here is my recipe:


2 - 1# bags of Great Northern Beans - SOAKED OVERNIGHT

1# Thick cut bacon

2 Onions

2 Tablespoons - Minced Garlic

6 Tablespoons Molasses

2 Teaspoons Kosher Salt

1 Teaspoon Black Pepper

1/2 Teaspoon Dry Mustard

1 Cup Ketchup

2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce

1/2 Cup Dark Brown Sugar

1/4 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper

1/4 Teaspoon Cinnamon

1 Tablespoon Honey


1) Soak beans overnight

2) In "soaking" water, simmer beans for 1.5 hours

3) Drain beans, reserve 1 cup liquid

4) Cut bacon into 1/2" strips, render in pan and cook, remove to paper towel to drain, reserve grease

5) Cook onion and garlic until translucent in bacon grease, remove from saute pan and drain grease

6) Mix molasses, salt, pepper, mustard, ketchup, worcestershire, sugar, cayenne, cinnamon, and honey in large bowl

7) Add beans, bacon, onions and garlic and mix

8) Place mixture into aluminum pan, add reserved "soaking" water, stir, and cover with aluminum foil

9) Bake in smoker covered for 3 hours then 3 hours uncovered


I will add more pics once its done.

I haven't.

But I will tell you that we had a lot left over, stored them in several dinner side sized tupperware containers and froze them.

They did freeze and reheat very well.

Did a batch like yours but added 1/2C Jim Beam. alcohol cooked out but added great taste. Took to a party not a bean left.

These look great, going to try them this weekend. 2 Questions though, what temp did you put them in the smoker at and what kind of wood did you use for the smoke. I'm a newbie and just started smoking about 2 months ago. Any help would be appreciated!
