Texas-Style Baked Beans

Recipe by  

"Take the time to make up a batch of these authentic Texas baked beans the next time you have an outdoor cookout. They are sure to be a hit! These are great if you don't have a smoker, but if you have access to a good hickory or pecan fire, take advantage. For a real Texas experience, enjoy a bottle of Lone Star® beer for yourself and one for the beans while you make them."

  • Cook's Note:
  • To bake beans on a wood smoker, preheat the smoker to between 250 degrees F (120 degrees C) and 275 degrees F (135 degrees C). Pour beans mixture into a greased 9x13-inch foil pan. Cook in the smoker for 30 minutes. Cover foil pan with aluminum foil and continue cooking for 2 to 3 hours. Remove aluminum foil cover and transfer beans to a preheated 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) oven for 10 minutes to brown the beans.

This is my new go-to recipe for baked beans...AWESOMELY FANTASTIC!!!!!! I did halve the recipe, using 2 cans of pinto beans, drained and rinsed. These were super simple to make and the house smelled soooo good while these were baking. I always get baked beans from a local market that we always considered 'the best' baked beans, but these surpass those, and are waaaaay cheaper to make than those ones are to buy, so that's a bonus. I did measure all of the liquid ingredients and brown sugar, but I did eyeball the onions and red pepper, and I'm sure I used more of those than the recipe called for. If I could give these beans more stars, I would...these are wonderful~YUM, YUM, YUM!!!!! Thanks for sharing. :)
