Just made these this weekend for a wedding of 250. I made 4 #10 cans. If you're talking about the large turkey roasting pans you can pretty easily fit 2 #10 cans plus all the other ingredients that you need. I add a couple pounds of pulled pork to a batch that size so it takes up more room. People rave about these beans. So much so that sometimes I have to remind people I made other stuff to ya know how were the ribs and pulled pork?I've made these several times for small groups, but would like to make a large batch for an event I am cooking for on Saturday. Serving about 125 people with other sides, so thinking of doing 1 roaster of beans, just a guesstimate tho. This is a long thread and may be covered somewhere already, but I'm looking for a scaled version of this recipe that will get me close to filling a roaster pan.
Thanks in advance.
I have made these 5 times now and everybody raves about them. Thanks Dutch for making me look like a smoking genius...Glad you liked them. The day will come (if it hasn't already) that when you talk about doing some Que the family will ask "Doing the Wicked Beans too?"
Pagan, Make 'em up as you see fit. I have a friend that is allergic to pineapple and I used apple sauce to replace the pineapple.Wife LOVES the original minus the pineapple and jalapenos! I have a friend who does not eat pork, and I have made this dish using Bush's vegetarian beans and adding burnt ends from a brisket instead of bacon, she is a huge fan as well!! Thanks for such a versatile recipe Dutch!!
88rxna, thank you for sharing your experience. These ol' beans sure get around. Plan on being asked to "bring your beans" next time your invited to a cook-out!These beans stole the show over my pulled pork. I tossed these under the pork butt for the first 3 hours and through them in the fridge until it was time for dinner..tossed them in a crock pot and reheated them and I could hear all of the people in the background just raving abut them.
Thank you so much
Well, RedOctobyr- when you're just starting out you got to experiment to find just how you like them. AS for which bean to use- I've used them all from well known brand to store brand. The only complaint I have ever received was "Where did all the beans go?"Dutch, thank you for sharing this. I made them yesterday for the first time, they were delicious!
I made a single batch, and started light. 1 jalapeno, seeds removed, and 1/2 Tbsp dry ground mustard. I'd be fine with a little more heat, so next time I may try 2 jalapenos, and maybe reduce the brown sugar a bit. I used B&M Original beans, and crushed pineapple.
I just got my smoker, so I'm new at this. I should have thought to hold back some of the mix, and make it in the oven, just to help compare how much flavor the smoking adds.
