Default Beans and First ABT's

The temp was supposed to get into the 40's today so decided to try some beans and ABT's. I was also going to do my first fattie, but ran out of room on the smoker.

Anyway, smoker is up to temp and should be done in a couple of hours. Will post more pics later, but here are some before photos (hope this works )..............


ABT's and beans (lower rack)

Remember one of our rules! There is always room for a fatty!

Those look good. Can't wait for the finished pictures. What kind of beans?

Come and get 'em!

The ABT's turned out great. Neighbors love them. Definately will be a staple at contests and weekly bbq's.

Beans were ok. The receipe turned out to be more of a meal itself, not just a side dish. Taste was still good and had a nice heat at the end.

Always nice to get back out and do some cooking.

Congrats on the good cook. You will need a 12 step program now that you have eaten ABTs. They are very addictive.

Bean Receipe

1 lb hamburger - cooked and drained
1/2 lb sausage - cooked and drained
8 slices of bacon, cooked and chopped
4 - 15 oz can of Pork and Beans - drained
6 oz honey
12 oz bbq sauce
1 1/2 cups chopped onion - raw
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp crushed red pepper
1 tsp tabasco
1 tsp dried mint

mix all together and cook on smoker for about 2 hours at 225. since everything is really already cooked, except the onion, you can vary the time if you want. i was cooking the abt's for about 2 hours so i figured i'd do the same for the beans. i also let the grease from the abt's drip into the beans.

i used head country original sauce for the bbq sauce.

the beans eat more like a meal than a side dish and have a nice, small bit of heat at the end.
