Anyone have a quick easy recipe to doctor these, or is it needed. I wasn't a bean eater before Keri C beans and want something different in my recipe holster.

Drain the liquid
add
1 cup maple syrup (the good stuff)
2 tbs dry mustard
1/2 cup JD BBQ sauce (#7)
Bacon or sausage
Put in smoker until it starts to thicken (2hrs)
Can be done on the stove top if your not smoking

Start with the trinity: bacon, onion and garlic. Add the beans, some green chilies and any other things you like such as salsa or bbq sauce.

Easy? Sure. Start with Allen Foods baked beans, drain 1/2 the liquid. Add Mollasses, Onion Powder, BBQ Sauce and chopped brisket. Smoke at 250 for 3 hours.

That label cracks me up. Texas Style. Authentic Western Flavor.

Born and raised here in Texas and them things dont taste anything like folks around here make.

Not a bad bean as far as canned beans go, but great .... not really. Anything you do to them will probably help.

Looks in the recipe section for Doctored Bush Beans posted by DFLittle (Chad).

Its a staple of a basic method I use, before adding a "whatever I have on hand" item

PS, smoked pork tenderloin chopped up is awesome in beans.

Ranch Style Beans were around my house for as long as I can remember and until Keri's recipe came out were about the only canned beans I ate. Here is my how-to snipped from my site.

There are quite a few recipes that use canned beans. Most of them are sweet barbecue beans, sometimes with things like brown sugar or molasses and cooked with bacon. Here is a recipe using my favorite canned beans, Ranch Style Beans. These beans have Texas roots and were introduced on the market in 1934. They were a favorite of President Lyndon Johnson and were often served on his ranch. These beans are not sweet but have a hint of chili powder. Ranch Style Beans are ok straight from the can, but here is how I like to prepare them.

Ranch Style Beans come in 3 varieties, regular, jalapeno and sweet onion.

1 can Ranch Style Beans
1 bottle of beer
2 cloves of garlic – not peeled
2 green onions (including some of the tops) - chopped
1 handful of green bell pepper – chopped
1 slice of bacon or some ham – cubed
rub
salt & pepper
corn oil

In a 2 qt. pot, on low heat, add a little oil and the garlic. Slowly roast the garlic for about 20 minutes, turning often, until it is soft. Remove from pan, squeeze the garlic out of the husk and smash it, reserve for later. Add the bacon or ham to the pot and sauté for a few minutes. Add the green bell pepper followed by the green onion. When the peppers and onions begin to soften, add the beans along with the garlic, bring the beans to a simmer. Add ˝ of the bottle of beer and some rub. Continue to simmer, uncovered for about 10 minutes then lower the temp and reduce to desired thickness, add salt & pepper to taste. At this point, the beans can go onto the cooker to get some smoke flavor. Beans may be partially covered to control the reduction. Add more beer if needed during the reduction.

Well, Ranch Style Beans were born in Texas too, and marketed by Great Western Foods (that little Texas company which started as a commissary in Denison in 1872). Granted home-made beans are much better, and I jazz up Ranch Styles myself, but I still buy them.

I moved from Texas 38 years ago when I was a teenager, Ranch Styles and Imperial Dr. Pepper (a buddy sends me some on occasion) are two of the store-bought things that take me back home.

That's a flashback. My grandmothers first name was Pearl. She was not much of a drinker but that is what was in her refrigerator in the kitchen.

Remember Jax and Fabacher (sp), we used to steal it from my grandfathers fridge in the garage. Price wars for beer in those days would get down to $.79 a six pack.

Yep, the factory is located in Ft Worth.
