I'm having a mini-family reunion at my house next weekend with tons of BBQ, and I want to make some baked beans as a side. I know I've seen some recipes floating around here, but figured I'd ask again to get some recent input!

Thanks.

I like them with Peaches more than Pears.....oh AND Bacon Bits.....only a bit of the Stubbs if I'm doing Beef or a bit of Sweet Baby Rays if doing Porks.......

I have Diced and browned Spam in a skillet and added to the beans before - Mmmmm
Other times chopped Briskets......

And chopped/crumbled Fatties......

Good stuff! I'm going to roll with Keri c's recipe, but substitute peach filling for the apple, and put it in the smoker for a couple hours as Wampus' recipe suggests. Sounds great.

I am big fan of Keri's hog apple beans - it all just goes together! Typically used a diced up fatty in it.

I love Keri's beans, and I love putting peaches instead of apple pie, but make sure to add some fresh or frozen peach slices as well...the peach pie filling gets a little lost in there. The tart peach slice makes for a great contrast.

Sounds like a plan. Recipe amended!

Another vote for KeriC's Hog Apple Beans. And my best tip is to print off several copies of the recipe because I guarantee you will get requests for it.

Keri's Hog Apple beans gets 'em every time. If I ever had a party and didn't serve those, I'd be drawn and quartered.

Now if you wanna go really super simple, just throw some cut up tasso into canned pintos - that's it. Very, very good.

Another vote for Keri's. Now expected to be made if i bring BBQ anywhere. I add little extra molasses and use a fatty and those little smokies sausages. (https://www.hillshirefarm.com/products/cocktail-links/litl-smokies-smoked-sausage)(If you microwave them for about 2-3 mins. on a paper towel and drain for a bit, they are not as greasy and will kind of just float around in there like little sausage mines)
I actually use these in all my baked beans recipes.

I have made Keri's and Wampus and Wampus always comes in with the victory. Both are very good in my opinion.

On the pit barrel website, there is a barrel beans recipe that I made yesterday that was delicious. https://www.pitbarrelcooker.com/videos/barrel-beans

Great thread! I was planning to bring some beans this weekend, and this has some interesting ideas. I think I'll give the Keri Bean recipe a shot!

I can attest that either Keri C's recipe or Wampus' peach bourbon beans are guaranteed to be a hit (FYI, I always put a full pound of cooked bacon in either recipe)

Keri's Hog Apple Beans (especially when they get some pork drippings in them) are great!

I stumbled upon one from Trader Joe's

2 cans of their organic beans
1/2 cup of their sriracha/garlic sauce
1/2 bacon
1/2 an onion

fry the bacon. remove the bacon from the pan and crumble it.
Sautee the onions in the bacon drippings.
Add the onions, bacon, sauce and beans in a pot, bring to a boil, then simmer for about 15 minutes (you could back them, but I was hungry)

my twist: add some smoked pork belly to the above before you simmer it.

Recipe my family loves
1 gallon pork n beans
1 pound sausage mild to hot your choice
1 small jar salsa mild or hot
3/4 brown sugar
Brown the sausage
Put everything in a Dutch oven stick in smoker low and slow the longer you cook the thicker it gets.
