Man, these smoked baked beans are just flat out insanely good. You could make them in the oven, but it’s the smoky flavor that just makes these beans outstanding. They’re even better if you add a few chunks of smoked pork or beef.
This recipe makes a pretty good sized batch, but believe me, it won’t last long. People are going to want seconds if not thirds.
If you want a bit of kick to your smoked baked beans, add some roasted, chopped or diced jalapenos or a couple dashes of hot sauce. I cooked mine on a rack beneath some Tasso ham, which has a heavy dose of cayenne on it. All that spicy goodness dripped down into the beans giving them a really great kick. I made sure that the beans got hot enough that I didn’t have to worry if the ham drippings were fully cooked or not. Not everyone has tasso to put on the smoker at the same time as their beans, so reach for hot peppers or hot sauce instead!
I prefer to use fruit or nut woods when I smoke unless I want a heavier smoke flavor. Pecan, apple or cherry are my favorites. I used apple for smoking these beans
Also try my smokehouse beans.
