Sorry, about a topic I'm sure has been hashed over a gazillion times on here but trying to locate specific info on here is like trying to get the truth out of a politician. Sorry my feelings only after alot of frustration trying to navigate through the forums.
Anyways, I tried to smoke beans from dried beans over the weekend and after several hours of cooking the beans were still hard. So before you chime in on just what did this green horn not do, here's what I did. First I used dried navy beans. Second I soaked them for several hours. I then cooked them for an hour on the stove in water and then transferred them (the beans not the liquid I cooked them in) into my pan along with my sauce. Sent them into the smoker for almost 4 hours at 225 and they were still hard. Put them into the oven at 350 for another hour and a half, final result, the beans were still hard and as of today they were causing terrible chipping in the toilet!!!! lol
So can someone tell me what or where I went wrong?
