Today was my first cook and it went really good. I did ribs and hog apple beans.i started with a small fire so it took almost 2 hours to come up to temp.once at 225 it was rock steady. The cooker was easy to control.and the food was great. Not as much smoke flavor as the Shirley but still really good.i also used cherry wood for the first time.

Yes the beans are great. I used leftover pulled pork and half a fatty for the meat .these were the best beans I've done yet.

Love the way that rib bone pulled back and seems to be dangling in the air! Nicely done.

The recipe is keris hog apple beans. I got it off this site. I used blues hog championship blend barbecue sauce. I added an extra 1/2 cup sauce and an extra can of black beans.

Keri's Hog-Apple Baked Beans

3 or 4 slices bacon, diced
2 (27 oz) cans Bush's Baked Beans
1/2 c. Blues Hog BBQ Sauce (or other sweet-spicy favorite)
1 lb. smoked leftover smoked pork or beef, more or less, or 1 lb crumbled cooked pork sausage (a maple fattie is good)
1 can apple pie filling, pieces somewhat chopped up
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 green pepper, chopped
1/2 c. brown sugar
2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp. Mustard (prepared)
1 tsp chipotle or cayenne powder (optional, to taste*)
1 tsp Blues Hog barbecue rub (or your favorite de jour)

Brown bacon, and saute onion and green pepper in bacon grease. Mix in remaining ingredients. Bake at 325º for 1 hour, or simmer on stovetop in large pot for 30 minutes if you don't have time to do them in the oven. Serves 12.

This recipe began life as APPLE PIE BAKED BEANS from somewhere on the web, but I think I've made enough changes to it now to claim it as my own. This is my standard for baked beans anymore. Jack's Old South does something similar to this, but I understand that they use peach pie filling instead.

*This is a rather spicy recipe due to the chipotle/cayenne powder. Feel free to leave it out if you'll be feeding those who prefer a less spicy taste.
