My Very Hammy Ham and Beans with LOTS of Q-VIEW.

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

I had some left over ham I needed to use up before it went bad. So I decided to make some ham and beans. I asked for some advice on using dry beans, and they requested I post it up so Here it is.  I Thought I had pics of every thing I was putting in them, but some dummy forgot to put in the memory cardicon_redface.gif.  All is not lost just the prep pics, as I realized my mistake when I went to up load them to my computer.


Using the dry beans I got a much better flavor then when I use the caned, I WILL be using them again.


What went into these ham and beans was;

1# Pinto beans and 1# Great Northern Beans (soaked in cold water 8 hours brought to a boil then drained and rinsed)

Left over ham and bone along with all juices( approximately 6 cups Diced a 2 1/2 Qt bowl was about 1/2 full)

ham was re-smoked and glazed with packet that comes with it to which I added  1/4 cup brown sugar, 1tsp Chinese 5 spice, 1/2 tsp ground cloves

4 cups diced carrots

1 bunch celery diced tops and all

1 large red onion diced and 1 large yellow onion diced

1# turnips diced

1 head garlic chopped (12 cloves)

6-8 sprigs fresh thyme 

1 cup dark brown sugar (ham was a bit salty so I used 1 cup normally use 1/2, should have used 3/4)

4 tsp ground mustard

1 tsp Beau Monde Seasoning

1 tsp CBP



Every one in the pool 45 min into the cook

Not a big fan of the corn bread.  Guess I just don't have the real BBQ pedigree?


But dang!  I would get all over those beans!


Isn't it amazing what you do with ham ends, bacon ends, burnt ends and rib ends that other people might just throw away?


Pass me a big old plate of that, bud!


Good luck and good smoking.

Yes Rob every one LOVED it. We have enough for another meal and maybe a lunch or 2.  Had I used all 4# of beans we would have been eating them for a week, and i'm not sure they would have fit in the Pot, along with every thing else......LOL
