Alright you asked for it, don't blame me if you set off the smoke alarms.
I soaked 1 pound each navy and great northern beans overnight.
Next day, I brought the apple cider and whole cloves "about 12" to a simmer in a saucepan, let it sit for a bit
to draw the flavor from the cloves.
Drain beans and add to the pot. Discard whole cloves and add 1/2 of the apple cider.
I then added the same amount of ham bone stock " refrigerated and fat skimmed"
Then add 1lb. brown sugar
1 can mild Rotel.
1 cup sweet baby rays and same of Chris & Pitts "Use your favorite of course"
1 whole sweet onion, 1 red and 1 yellow bellpepper.
2 whole cloves garlic chopped
Take the rest of the apple cider and stock and set aside. This will be added later
Now get in going on the smoker with your favorite wood, I like apple and hickory for this.
Let it absorb the smoke for a few hours and either cover and finish on the smoker or crock pot it.
I add crispy fried bacon and little smokies and devour it.
