Tried your beans with some smoked brats a few weeks ago and WOW ... what a great recipe Will definitely make often. Thanks for sharing.
I never did tell ya thank you for the recipe. I have been making them for a couple years now and everytime people rave about them. I use a full pound of bacon and double the vegies. I can eat them for days! Again thank you vary much!
I made these baked beans this weekend after finding the recipe and they were a big hit. Cant believe how much flavor there was. The only thing that I follow the recipe a 100% on was that the wife grabbed Van De Camp baked beans, but still they were good. Only thing I will do different is used the crushed pinapple. Thanks Dutch for a great recipe and I will be making these more often.
Anyone ever done this from dried beans? If so, how much dry beans does this cover? I'm guessing 1-2 lbs. of beans, but not sure.
Also, did you soak the beans overnight or cook and soak? Then add to sauce recipe and cook in smoker?
Going to try these this weekend with some ribs and chickens I'm doing.
Thanks. Already had one failed attempt. I soaked the beans for 12 hours and then boiled for a little more than an hour. That was WAY to long!! They started turning to mush. Think this time I'm going to skip the boiling part. Just soaking may soften them up enough to just sauce and cook from there.
Since I need these for tomorrow, I am just going to soak for 12 hours and then smoke for 2-3 hours and see what happens. Hope they are done enough. If not, I can always through them in the oven for awhile!
Great recipe Dutch. Just did a small batch for a graduation party. 4 x 117oz cans from Sam's. Ended up filling 6 half pans when everything was said and done. Smoked all 6 pans for about 8 hours with an AMNTS filled with Hickory. Man, people LOVED them and they were definitely a hit. Gonna have to get a bigger mixing bowl if I ever make another batch like that again.
Dutch, thank you so much for the recipe. I used the WBB recipe combined with the Ranch Beans recipe and made it lower carb and a whole lot less sugar since I'm T1 diabetic. All the seasonings were yours though. I could hardly stop "sampling" them, cold... So far in the smoker for 2 hours. Only 4 more to go
Dutch, I think I miscalculated right from the start. We were expecting about 100 ppl to show up and that's how many we had. Figured 1 of those big Sams cans would feed 25, so I went with 4 of them. At the end of the day, there were 3+ 1/2 pans of beans left. I saw a number of people getting 2nds and even 3rds on the beans and lots of people were talking about how great they were, so I know the left overs weren't due to people not liking them. I just had waaaay too many right from the start.
