baked beans

Recommended Posts

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.

    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
    • Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness. 
    • I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.
    • never heard of it....  
    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
    • You've got the right idea. There are a ton of bacon recipes here on HSO if you search for bacon - I've pasted one here to what seemed like one of the more popular brines. I made bacon once, and it turned out OK, but it's a long process.  Good luck and let us know how it turn out.  
    • Reverse seared a big thick 3lb cowboy ribeye for Father’s Day over charcoal. The novelty of the idea was fun. Then after cooking you realize you pay a lot of money for bone and fat and not a lot of meat.   Lesson learned to just go with a nice thick regular ribeye steak instead next time.  
    • Well this weekend certainly wasn't ideal for fishing weather. Between strong winds and storms every day Friday-Sunday it made it hard to get some good quality fishing time in. Just kept getting chased off the water with thunder and lightning in the area every day and night. Never saw a lot rain but plenty of storms in the area to keep us off the water.   Did manage to catch some fish regardless just nothing big enough or worth keeping. Not a keeper walleye caught and lots of skinny 8-9" perch which were all released.
    • Hey everyone my wife bought me a pork belly to try to smoke and make bacon out of it. Does anyone have any advice i have never done one before. Sounds like your brine it for a while then smoke then let cool and slice. But it would be nice to hear from people that have done it.
