If there’s one thing my husband likes to do, it’s using his smoker. When we first started dating I heard all about it, and I still do. Not complaining because he’s good at it! Just saying, that’s one of his specialties. Sadly, one of his favorite things to make is smoked beans. I don’t like beans and yes I’ve tried his. They taste like beans to me, although they do have a good smoked flavor, I’m just not quite to the point of saying I like smoked beans. The good news is though, everyone else loves his smoked beans! Does that mean I just have no taste? I dunno, you decide :).
So here’s how he does his magic.
He generally starts with 4 cans of Pork and Beans
Next, he covers it in bar-b-q sauce. He just eyeballs it…
Then you add in Mustard. Again, he eyeballs it. I know, such a detailed recipe huh?
Cover it in pepper. Remember you have 4 cans of Pork and Beans so be liberal within reason of your pepper.
Then, cover in brown sugar.
So now, as a reminder we have Pork and Beans, we have pepper, Bar-b-q sauce, mustard, and brown sugar. Then we’re going to cover the whole thing with a whole onion sliced.
Next, you’re going to pop it into your smoker. Low and slow. About 225 degrees for about 2 1/2 hours.
And there you have it. Hubby’s smoked beans.
