Baked Beans, The Hard Way

Smoked Bourbon Baked Beans  

So, how do we make our baked beans? Well it's a long process, but I'll let you in on it.

First we need beans; three beans actually. We like to go with black beans, kidney beans and haricot beans. You can use dry beans if you have the time but we just go with canned beans. Make sure you rinse them down if you use canned beans to get rid any firming salts.

Next, we add some vegetables. We go with onions, bell peppers and de-seeded jalapeno. Diced it up fine and mix it in, simple! 

OK, time to add something to bring in some real flavor, with our in-house made, sweet BBQ sauce and let's not forget the namesake bourbon and don't use the expensive stuff, the cheap crap will do just fine. Finally we add some dried garlic for added flavor and brown sugar & molasses. The brown sugar by the way isn't just to sweeten it up, it also stops the beans from turning into mush when cooked up for a long period (we're not trying to make re-fried beans people!).

Next, we pan it up and plonk a couple of sage leaves in.

Now, we fire up the smoker and dump in a couple of spare ribs and place the pans right underneath the ribs. Come back in four to five hours and you have some baked beans, made the hard way.
