    You lost me with the hotdogs ... but why drain the beans is it that bad?

    Instead of putting them in an oven, why not use your smoker?

    Doesn't get bubbly, but has great smoky taste in about 3 to 4 hours ..eh?

    LOML likes the hot dogs, I can take them or leave them. I drain the beans because the sauce that they come in doesn't have much flavor. I don't rinse them so some of the sauce staus in there. Also if you didn't drain them they would be too liquidy.

    I like the idea of doing them in the smoker. I think i'll try that next time.

    I love smoked baked beans, put a pan of beans in the smoker for a few hrs and its a delight, why would someone drain the bean blood "juice" thats what makes it what it is, baking takes away the water leaving all the bean blood goodness[​IMG]
