Father’s Day this year was filled with lots of fun, lots of love, and of course lots of food!
How to make Smoked Baked Beans with Bacon
You know it’s a great recipe if it starts with 10 slices of bacon, right?!
Cut the bacon right into a 12 inch cast iron skillet over medium heat.
The bacon will cook for 4 to 5 minutes, then remove it from the skillet.
Also remove most of the bacon grease, but leave some in the skillet.
In the same skillet with some bacon grease, add a diced onion and cook the onion for a few minutes.
Next up is adding three big cans of baked beans, I like using Bush’s Original beans.
Then add the cooked bacon, yellow mustard, BBQ sauce, Worchestershire sauce, and brown sugar.
Give it a stir and it’s ready for the smoker.
Place on a smoker set to 250 degrees right in the cast iron skillet.
If you don’t have a cast iron skillet, it’s okay…just put the beans in a foil pan.
We were already using the smoker for two pork shoulders.
So this worked out perfectly they could all smoke at the same time 🙂
The Smoked Baked Beans with Bacon will smoke for about an hour and a half to two hours.
And stir it a few times throughout.
Smoky, bacon-y perfection…YUM!
