I tired numerous time I can't prefect them.. I now baked beans are the life of every cook out.. When their all gone that's an amazing thing.. Anyone can make baked beans but only a SELECT few can make really good baked beans..
My grandmothers beans are amazing she's gave me the recipe I try it and they never taste them same.. i always laugh and tell her it's the pot she bakes them in that is just seasoned with flavor.. There also a lady that run one of the last paw and paw grocery stores around and she makes amazing beans as well.. Of coarse she won't give the recipe out but there's just somethign different about them.. I tried everything to replicate them with no success. I'm think powdered mustard might be something she's using that I'm not..

I have another cookout planned for for next Saturday and I'm wanting to make some AMAZING baked beans is this possible does anyone have the "mind blowing" recipe?

:biggrin:

that's a great recipe and once you make it, you can experiment with different proportions and different ingredients to make it your own.

try leftover smoked turkey.
try cherry preserves.
try 4 times the pulled pork.
try adding pig candy.
try adding cooked & crumbled bacon on the top at the end.

the possibilities are endless, but the base recipe is fantastic on it's own.
use whatcha got.

Once I tried Keri's beans, I never looked back at another recipe.

I will add my kudos to Keri's as well. I would add though, that you cannot beat a quality bean cooking pot, cast iron, well seasoned etc...

Why wait? Toss a fatty in the UDS and use that instead of pulled pork. Tastes great!

Here's another vote for the Kerri's recipe. I usually mod a bit, such as using peach pie filling and lots more meat than called for and always finish with well done crumbled bacon on top... I have never had leftovers!

It is the best!

Never thought about cherry...hmmmm. I know peach is on my list to try next.

There's other beans besides Keri C's?
If I have no smoked meat I get the end trimmings the butcher cuts off the bulk bacon to square it up and throw on aand 1/2 cook in heavy smoke.

Well instead of pulled pork I could use whole sausage?
also was found to be better apple or peach?

I made it yesterday and added two smoked pork tenderloins to it. I brought it to a party and it was the most raved about dish there. Many requests for the recipe. The key is to get the right spice level. I put in a whole bottle of sticky fingers habanero hot bbq sauce and leave out the cayenne (otherwise its too hot for you average bean eater)

Keri's Hog Apple Baked Beans are the best i've ever made. Everytime I make them for other people, they can't believe how good they are. Everyone wants the recipe for them but I won't give it to them, I tell them " it's a family secret ". They also freeze great. I've had them in the freezer for several months and heated them up and they taste just like they came out of the pit.

I have started using 1 1/2 fresh apples in Keri's recipe and like it even better. Gonna try the cherry next.

Another Keri's fan here. Just the way the recipe calls for.

I have half a pork tenderloin in the freezer I'm going to get that out tomorrow and get ready to smoke some pork I should be able to use this

I see the recipe calls for 1 tsp Blues Hog barbecue rub (or your favorite de jour)

I have another rub I use I don't have any blues hog..
I wonder if I should not use any rub on the tenderloin if I'm going to put some in the beans?

I know the Cheeries have been mentioned instead of the apple, but we used PEACH pie filling and won second place last year at a competition! Try it I actually like the peach better....

Chavo, use the rub. It doesn't have to be Blue's Hog. The recipe is open to use the rubs you like and you will enjoy the flavors you like the best. Give it a try and let us all know what you think. The cherry and peach substitutes sound good as well.

Keri's with fresh diced granny smith apples instead of the pie mix gives a great texture to it and cuts back on the sweetness.

I'm with Rick on this one. I made it with leftover pulled pork and next time I'd try it some other way.

I was just re-reading the recipe this morning and I seen it also calls for 1/2c blues hog bbq sauce.. Now there not a shop locally that carries this type nor have I ever heard of it until now.. I'm sure ANY bbq sauce will be just as well I'm just looking for possible brands that are tried and true..

I just use what ever sauce i have on hand. I have actually never used blues hog bbq sauce.

and it always turns out ok?
I made 2 batches of sauce this weekend one was with a mustard base and the other was with a ketchup base.. I'm from the midwest so ALL bbq sauce is with a keptchup base so the mustard was very different..

After I let them sit and cool I decided I didn't like either of them one was to sweet and the other tasted to much like mustard..
Of coarse I've already made them so I can't let them go to waste so I go get some chicken breast and fire up the gas grill for speed.
Both sauces tasted amazing after they were cooked it lost it's sweetness which I'm not a big fan of.. I think next time I'm going with the ketchup and little bit of dried mustard, some garlic, less sugar and I think I'll have a winning sauce..

I too prefer the peaches to the apple, and I use Myron Mixon's recipe as a starter, then I mod it to what I am looking for. It has always been a hit at every party/catering that I have done in the last 5 years...

I have been using Myron Mixon's recipe for several years and get raved reviews whenever I serve them. Here is the recipe:

Jack's Old South & Grill Peach BBQ Beans

Source: Jack's Old South BBQ & Grill, Vienna, Georgia

8 strips bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 large yellow onion, chopped
1 (#10 can - about 6 pounds and 10 ounces) baked
beans (recommended: Bush's)
3 cups canned peach pie filling
1/2 cup barbecue 2 tablespoons Jack's Old South BBQ Rub

Heat smoker oven to 325 degrees F.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the bacon and cook, stirring, until somewhat crispy and its fat has rendered. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain, leaving the fat in the skillet.

Add the pepper and onion to the skillet and cook, stirring, until softened, about 6 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a large baking pan.

Add the bacon, beans, pie filling, barbecue sauce, and rub to the pan. Mix to combine and bake, uncovered, until hot and bubbly, about 1 hour.
