Really good baked bean recipe
  Re: (...)
My son-in-law, James, made these last weekend to serve with a smoked brisket. They were really delicious. I might leave out the green bell pepper, but will use some jalapeno. And, I would probably not use 6 slices of bacon, maybe 2 or 3 at the most.

Smoked Bourbon Baked Beans

6 strips thick cut hickory smoked bacon, cubed or chunked
2 medium onions, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 jalapeño or more or less to your taste, chopped. (seeding is optional)
1 53 oz. can plain pork and beans
1 15 oz. can red kidney beans
1 can great northern beans
½ cup ketchup
¼ cup Kentucky Bourbon or Tennessee Whiskey
4 T. molasses
2 T. honey
2 tsp. dry mustard
¼ tsp. pepper

1. Put beans in smoker uncovered and cook for at least 3 hours at 230°.

FishinChik says: "I took them to 175° to get the thickness I like, using a blend of cherry and oak pellets."

mmmm, copied - haven't smoked beans forever!
Retired and having fun writing cookbooks, tasting wine and sharing recipes with all my friends.

Never smoked beans. I'll have to try this. The recipe is similar to what I do, minus the whiskey and with just pork and peppers either.
Keep your mind wide open.
