    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!


    Before....I love onions.


    Just put on.


    About to go in the crockpot.

    More to come!

    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.
