    I was brewing some beer today and decided to smoke some meat.  Nothing to fancy since I wanted most of time on the beer.  The meat was smoked while the beer was draining into their fermenters.

    Here is what I got so far...I finished them on the grill.  I'll post pics of nice bowl for ya!

    The dish was simple.  Smoking the meatballs was cake.  I did an hour on the smoker at 190-175F.  I let the meatballs get to 137F and took them off an put them on the grill. I used hickory.

    Once done on the grill, I threw this together:

    1 can of black beans(rinsed..i always rinse beans unless it is chili beans(to keep the sauce) because of the sodium in the liquid)

    1 can of great northern beans

    1 can of chili beans

    The meatballs, some broken up and some whole

    Some generic chili seasoning

    1.5 cans of water

    Put on low for about 3 hours

    I want to make my own seasoning, and the water can be adjusted to you liking.  This is the basic three bean chili that my wife and I use. It is simple, quick, and hearty.
