Default Smoked beans

I have no idea where I got this recipe, if I did I would give credit. It uses store bought prepared beans rather than dried, so yeh it's lazy. This makes em go wow when they taste them though. I've modded it sometimes with tiny bits of chopped habs and sometimes chipotle's from a can. I've also substituted "El Yucateco" green habanero sauce for the "Texas Pete's" with "warming" results. The different colors of bell peppers are for presentation only, and to tell the truth, once this has been in your smoker for 6 hours, the colors don't realy show up that well anyway. I've also substituted salt pork for the bacon with acceptable results.

Last weekend at a graduation reception I was cooking for, my banker was begging for the recipe. I told him "In good time my man". Same thing he tells me when I'm waiting for his response on a financial question.

Smoked Beans

1 can Bush's "original baked beans" The "big boy" #10 can. About a gallon.
2 large yellow onions; chopped
2/3 cup of your favorite bbq sauce
1 entire green bell pepper - diced
1 entire yellow bell pepper - diced
1 entire red bell pepper - diced
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup molasses
1/4 cup "sugar in the raw"
2 tablespoons dry mustard
2 cups pulled pork (save a quart back next time you cook a butt)
The pulled pork is a must include ingredient, don't skip it!
1/4 tspn fresh ground black pepper
1/4 tspn chili powder (I use fresh ground de Arbol)
1/4 lb uncooked bacon slices; cut into pieces
3 tspn texas pete hot sauce

mix in disposable aluminum roasting pan and place in the smoker for about 6 hours.

I found the original and feel I need to give credit where credit is due:
