Smoked Bourbon Baked Beans

Discussion in 'Side Items' started by fishinchik, Apr 14, 2013.

  1. Smoked some beans today to go with PP.      They came out very well so I thought I'd share the recipe. 

    6 strips of thick cut hickory smoked bacon cubed or chunked
    2 medium onions, coarsely chopped
    1 green bell pepper, coarsley chopped
    1 jalapeño, or more or less to your taste, coarsley chopped   Seeding is optional

    1 can (53 ounces) plain pork and beans
    1 can (15 ounces) red kidney beans

    1 can great northern beans
    1/2 cup ketchup

    1/4 cup Kentucky Bourbon or Tennessee whiskey  

    4 tablespoons molasses

    2 tablespoons honey
    2 teaspoons dry mustard
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper

    Let them smoke uncovered for over 3hrs at 230 (I took them to 175 to get the thickness I like) using a blend of cherry and oak pellets.

    Hi FishinChik,

    I see that you joined yesterday, so welcome to the forum! 

    Your baked bean recipe looks delicious. Making smoked baked beans is something that I haven't tried yet, so your recipe looks like an awesome way to give it a shot.

    Thanks for posting it!

  8. Lesson learned.. next time.. take pics.  lol    Sorry, didn't think they were Qview worthy but I will next time.   I'm going to try my first brisket next weekend and will make another batch of beans then.
  9. You gonna smoke the brisket over the beans and let the brisket juice flavor em?

    ..Just saved this recipe, will do this summer!  Thanks!
  12. sounds like a great recipe. Going to smoke some some ribs on Saturday. These beans will fit right in.
  13. Looks like a good recipe. So take everything and put in a container and put on the grill? No cooking or mixing some before mixing all?

    Do you stir them at all?  I would think that giving them a stir maybe every 45 minutes would better distribute the smoke taste through the beans.
