NEW RECIPE: Wampus's Peach Bourbon Baked Beans
 
OK, so I've NEVER tried to make my own recipe. EVER.
After inquiring a while back about a baked bean recipe, I decided to make my own, which is technically a hybrid of 2 or 3 different recipes I found, with a couple of my own additions.:becky:

I've tweaked these and I think they're done. These baked beans are off the farkin HOOK!!!

I'd love for some of you to try them out and let me know what you think. I'm not typically a baked bean guy, but these are good.


Wampus's Peach Bourbon Baked Beans

Ingredients:
1 lg can (1 lb, 12 oz) of Bush's Baked Beans
4 slices of thick sliced bacon, chopped
1 lb maple fatty (smoked ahead of time), crumbled/diced
1 med onion, diced
1/2 bell pepper (I like orange or yellow)
1 can (21 oz) peach pie filling
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup Famous Dave's Apricot Bourbon BBQ Sauce
2 TBS worschestershire sauce
1/3 cup bourbon
1 lg clove garlic, minced
2 TBS yellow mustard
1 TBS rub

Directions:
-Smoke Fatty (can be smoked well before), crumble or dice
-Brown Bacon in skillet (about 1/2 way)
-Add onion & pepper - cook until just carmelized
-Slowly add bourbon & garlic - simmer until caramelized
-Remove from heat
-Add remaining ingredients to skillet, mix thoroughly
-Put in pan and place in smoker
-Smoke for at least 2 hours, stirring occasionally



The only thing that I may or may not change is to use cooked pinto or navy beans instead of baked beans. When I originally tried this I tried soaking raw pintos, but didn't do it correctly and the beans were very tough. The flavor was perfect, but the beans were tough. Today I did it with Bush's Baked beans and I'm just not sure if the sugar, molasses, etc that's already in the baked beans is too much and if it would be better with just regular canned pintos.

ALTHOUGH....I did them this way tonight and I gotta tell you.....the DID NOT SUCK!!!

The bourbon and the Famous Dave's sauce give them a unique flavor.


Try them out and let me know what you think Brethren.

Wampus---just a note. A couple of years back there was a post about using brown
sugar in beans...apparently, if you soak, then use the sugar before you cook, the beans
will toiughen up every time. I kinda think Bush's and Van Camp's cook their beans first
and mix everything together later. I started soaking and cooking my beans first and
haven't had any trouble. Seems to work as good as using cannned pintos, etc.

So, I really want to try this, but I don't know where to get the Famous Dave's sauce. Where can I get it, or can I substitute something? Thanks guys.

Yeah, I mistakenly thought that soaking beans just meant putting them in cold water overnight. What I found out after talking with my Mom and some folks here is that the best way to "soak" dried beans is:
http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...5&postcount=13. Mom offered the same advice as Bull did in that link. Plus, he suggests (as you do) to soak and soften by cooking the beans BEFORE you put them into a recipe. Don't know if it's the BS that did it, but seems you are correct.

Yesterday, when I made these I'd already gone past the point of soaking so I just picked up some Bush's.

Well, the local Grocery store here in my town stocks Famous Dave's. If you can't find it, you could always use any sauce of your choice, I suppose. I chose that one because the "Apricot/Bourbon" seemed logical and it also has a very subtle kick to it that lends itself nicely to the recipe. If you can't find it around you, it's available through their online store:

I really like their sauce.
