    Tiny-did ya have a chance to give these ribs a try?  
     
  2. I did make the ribs & they came out awesome. I did not make the beans though. I asked my wife to pick up the supplies for the beans, so the next time i fire up the smoker it's on like Donkey Kong! SO IT IS WRITTEN--SO IT WILL BE DONE! I will definetely let you know when the time comes. Thanks again.
     
  3. Just got a Smokin-It 2 smoker - seasoned it last night and Saturday I'm planning on doing these beans with a couple racks of ribs with Jeff's rub.  Is there any reason that I couldn't cook these on the smoker the whole time the ribs are cooking?  Main reason I ask is during the seasoning the smoker puts out alot more smoke early on and adding these beans to the smoker 3 hours in would miss that wonderful smoke at the beginning.  As long as it got up to 190ish shouldn't it be fine?  Does the oven at the hotter temps thicken it up at all?

    I usually keep mine in the smoker the whole time. I do stir them a bit to get the smoke mixed in really good.

    Good luck with your smoke. Oh if they beans get too thick just add a splash of apple juice or pineapple juice and it will thin it out.

    Casey, when I do ribs and beans the beans are in the smoker the whole time. When I'm doing butts or brisket, I'll put the beans in the smoker about 4-6 hours before my estimated done time. When I have the beans in the smoke longer than that, Ma Dutch claims that they take on too much smoke-

    If you're a spritzer or a mopper, remember to give them beans a stir to help distribute the smoke throughout the beans.

    Enjoy!
     
  6. Awesome - thanks for the replies guys.  Ribs will be dry, sauce on the side.  Want to perfect that first before adding to it.  Will spritz a couple times with apple juice but that is it and will stir when I do that.  I'm getting hungry already....

    I have been making wicked beans for a long time and i don't think i have ever mad a batch the same as the last one.

     Add this an that or subtract ?  Thanks for the starter recipe uncle dutch!
     
  9. Wow amazing beans...did a double batch but cut the jalapeno and dry mustard in half.  I think in the future I'd do the full amount of those to better balance the sweetness as we used fresh pineapple and put a bit extra in.  Great flavors!!  I'll be making these or variations of these beans for a long time I'm sure...thanks Dutch!

    Dutch, I just want to say that your baked beans are a hit when I make them, The only other way I make them is with out the Cayenne pepper, for some who do not like it spicey or hot.

    Allen, If you seed and devein jalapenos real good they lose most of their heat but you still get the flavor.

     I have done away w/ the pineapple all together as it was just to sweet for our taste.

     Last batch i made for here at home i added some chipotle powder. added a good kick to the beans.

    Allen, by all means fix up those bean the way you and your's like them best. And eman is right, removing the seeds and the white membrane will tone down the heat quite abit.

    @eman: Gotta love that Chipotle powder-I've got a rib rub that I put chipotle powder in. Man-what a kick!

    Tirrin, you might try turkey bacon. I haven't tried turkey bacon so you're kind of on your own with this one.  If you do try it, post back here with the results-good, bad or otherwise.

    Enjoy!

    Add me to the chorus of tose who LOVE these beans.  Had them in with 10# of pork loin for about 4 hours today and they came out incredible.  Had to forego the jalapenos for the sake of the kiddos, but I think next time I'll add in a couple just to see what I can get away with.  Thanks for the awesome start, now to start tweaking it!!

    Dutch,

    I just wanted to stop in and thank you for this recipe! I made a double batch yesterday in my WSM under 4 racks of spares. These beans are the BEST thing I have ever made on my smoker...period. I doubled everything but went with the original amount on jalapeno and dry mustard and they are not hot at all. Just the right amount of sweet and spicy. Thanks again for a great recipe!!!
     
  19. Ill be doing some beans similar to this this weekend. Never tried pinapple in baked beans so i might do it. Forgoing the bushes baked beans this time and trying to make baked beans from scratch. Going to be doing qview with the baked beans and spare ribs as well as some abts.

    Thanks!
