baked beans

5 posts in this topic

Anyone have a good baked beans recipe? I've got a crowd of 25 for this weekend up on the big V. Doing up 3 9# pork butts on the weber smokey mountain cooker along with some slaw and tater salad. I've got a couple of bean recipes, but looking for something new.

My mother inlaw calls these cowboy beans. Not sure if they go by another name but they are delicious. Practically a meal by themself, they go great with fish fry or anything on the bbq.

Start with Bushes Baked Beans (your choice of flavor)

Add:

Browned ground beef

Chopped cooked bacon

Cooked assorted beans (the ones that come dry in a bag with multiple sizes and colors)

Also make enough extra sauce to accomodate the additional meat and beans using the following (experiment to suit your taste)

brown sugar

vinegar

Ketchup

Mix all ingredients together, let cool and sit in the fridge for a day or so and then reheat and serve.

This came from a smoker HSOforum. I have made it several times and it is very good and should feed 25.

6-8 strips of bacon cut into 1/2 inch squares

1/2 med onion diced

1/2 bell pepper diced

1-2 jaapeno peppers diced ( seeding is optional)

1- 55 oz. can of bushes baked beens

1- 8 oz. can of pinapple chunks drained

1 cup of brown sugar, packed

1 cup ketchup

1 Tbs ground mustard

saute bacon until crispy remove, saute onion, bell pepper, and jalapeno in bacon bacon grease until tender.

in a large mixing bowl combine beans, pinapple, brown sugar, ketchup and dry mustard. Stir in bacon and vegitables. Pour into disposable 9x12 or a deep 9x9. If it looks to dry add ketchup.

Place in a 220 - 225 deg smoker for 2 1/2 - 3 hours or place in 350 deg oven for hour, beans should reach 160 deg.

Green bell pepper is very good in baked beans!!!

It don't seem like it should be, but it really is.

    • My wife and I like to float down the Crow from Rockford to the Mississippi. Hardly anyone on the river except Bald Eagles. Found some nice chicken of the woods mushrooms last summer.
    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
    • Just random ones I like. 1) Grand Marais fall. 2) HSO member Laker fishing. 3) Door County Wis.
    •   Yep and the Hawks won again!
