I haven't been able to find the answer by searching and decided to just ask. Is it possible to make a batch of beans without soaking the beans beforehand? I know there are 2 basic ways to soak, overnight or a quick boil then sit for an hour. I am curious how long it would take to just start with unsoaked dry beans. The brisket will be in the smoker for 12 or so hours so what happens if I stick some unsoaked beans and water (and other ingredients) in a dutch oven alongside the brisket at 250ish degrees for 12 hrs? Kind of a "set it and forget it" type of thing. Also my goal is a Ranch Style Bean so any recipes that you've found to be like the canned ranch style (black can with old west writing) are appreciated.
