I wasn't sure which color bell pepper to use so I went with red. I didn't get a picture out of the smoker but they were excellent. I'm not a bean eater and liked them!
I make these for every party we have and all Holidays we cook here. I always make way too many. My Sister in law works at a small Veteran home. I send a pan with her for the Veterans. They love them. She said they will make a meal out of them by adding cut up hot dogs. She said the pan is scrapped clean.
Dutch your beans are feeding a few of our nations Hero's every time I make them.
Hey Dutch, I made your recipe x5 for a my daughters wedding reception this week end. I heard things like "best beans I ever had", "never had pineapple in beans before butt it is delicious" "you made these?" This is an amazing recipe! Thanks man!
This is an "Awesome" recipe that I've made a few time but yesterday it was just over-the-top great with some additions I made. I doubled the recipe and basically followed the prep instructions, made it as follows;
1 1/4 pounds of bacon cut up and cooked in a cast iron wok until crispy
1 Yellow bell pepper diced
1 Red bell pepper diced
6 jalapeno peppers, de-seeded and diced
1 117 ounce can of Bush's beans
1 32 ounce can of black beans, drained
2 16 ounce cans of white beans drained
1 16 ounce can of crushed pineapple drained
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup maple sugar, packed
2 cups ketchup
1 Tbs. dry (ground) mustard
2 lbs chopped pulled pork
2 lbs chopped pulled ham
12 crushed garlic cloves
Seasoned with Adobo seasoning
Put it in two aluminum foil pans (to the tops) then in the MES smoker...smoked at 250 with Maple Pellets for 3 hours...unbelievable!
Made a 1/2 batch of this recipe for the first time tonight, and just cooked in the oven since we were grilling ribeye steaks. Beans turned out great. I think next time, I'd cut down on the brown sugar, but overall, it's a good recipe!
