Check out Dutche's wicked beans, they are tasty.
250 is about the lowest our drum will hold. Have the ball valve about half closed. Have tried closing it just a fraction more and it goes out. Last time we did beans in it they had started to boil and bubble...Ended up being very tasty but a bit to watery for my liking. I have Dutches recipe saved to my computer, will be trying them sooner or later. For now it is just a couple cans of Bushes beans, this time will be Maple. 3/4 of a pound of bacon, 3 jalapeños, a serrano, a helping of all the different chili powders as well as some smoked black pepper and sea salt. Last batch was pretty tasty. Course the night I made them and ribs is when the stomach bug settled in so I didn't get to enjoy the leftovers. Ernie mashed the beans up, added some smoked cheese and had some mighty fine looking/smelling refried beans...
Thanks for the input Sir
