    Is it OK to make Dutch's beans ahead and bake the next day. I'm planning on doing them for the first time and want to know if I make them tonight besides the smoking part will they still taste as awesome as everyone says?

    They'll taste just as good, however I must caution against adding raw bacon to room temp ingredients, then tossing it into the fridge, as it may take quite some time for it to reach temps below 40*F. If you cut up the bacon and stir it in just before smoking would be best for food safety reasons. In any case, to chill it quickly, place it into a shallow pan/dish...this will cool more quickly due to a larger surface area for thermal energy transfer.

    Have a GREAT smoke!!!

  3. Cook your bacon first, then mix and put in fridge till next day. They actually are better that way as the flavors all mix together over time.

    That's exactly what I did! Kept out a sample portion for myself and girlfriend and man are those some good beans!
     
  5. Brooksy, Yes, those are some great beans. I never smoke anything without a double batch. Got to have enough to last a few days.

    I made a double batch of them. My girlfriend said I made them a little spicy but it didn't stop her from finishing off the sample I made for us.
