Smoked barbecue beans cooked low and slow over wood for the ultimate BBQ side dish. With added brown sugar, BBQ sauce, and bacon, there’s a punch of flavor in every mouthful.
Have you ever had a baked beans dish that was so good, it could bring people to tears? That’s what I wanted to do when I tasted my first smoked BBQ baked beans recipe. The taste is amazing- sweet and tangy with a little bit of heat in the end.
If you’re looking for a delicious smoked side dish to go with your brisket or ribs there’s no better choice than these BBQ baked beans. They’re easy to make from scratch and have the perfect balance of sweet and spicy flavors that’s beloved in Southern barbecue.
There are many different variations for this dish, from Texan to Boston, but they invariably start off with caramelizing bacon and onion in a skillet. We then add our canned beans and added ingredients, before cooking low and slow over wood smoke for two to three hours.
This all-American favorite is smoked low and slow over hickory for a thick layer of smoke flavor. It has everything we love about backyard cooking in it, including bacon, beer, and barbecue sauce.
Once these are done, they’ll have a sweet smell from the wood, while the long smoke time will make them thick and tender. All the added ingredients like onion and bacon will have blended in.
