Smoked Baked Beans with Bacon and Beer
Smoked bake beans are swimming in a delectably seasoned sauce loaded with tender beans, chunks of bacon, and a hint of beer.
- 56 oz canned navy beans with liquid
- 8 oz thick sliced bacon cut into 1" pieces prior to cooking
- 1 sweet onion chopped
- 4 jalapenos chopped
- 12 ounces lager beer
- ½ cup BBQ sauce
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
Add chopped bacon to a large pot and set on the stove top over medium heat. When bacon is beginning to crisp add the chopped onions and jalepenos. Saute until tender.
Add beans, beer, BBQ sauce, and seasonings to the pot and stir to combine.
Place the pot in a 275 degree smoker uncovered with your preferred wood chips. Smoke for two hours.
Remove beans from the smoker. If not thickened to your liking mash a few beans with a fork and stir. Repeat as needed until thickened.
