Navy Beans | Onion Powder Brown Sugar | Molasses Apple Cider Vinegar BBQ Sauce | Dried Mustard Salt | Course Black Pepper Thick Cut Bacon
If you’re using dried beans, be sure to soak and pre-cook your beans. If using canned beans, drain and rinse two cans of beans and keep the liquid in one can; mix this with the sauce.
Add the beans and the ingredients for the sauce into a cast iron skillet or a disposable aluminum baking tin. Cook the bacon slightly over medium heat to render out a large portion of grease.
Spoon the bacon onto the beans and spread it into an even layer. Place in smoker and cook for 2-3 hours uncovered until bacon is darkened and crispy on top.
Remove from the smoker and allow to cool briefly before serving. Stir when serving to mix in the bacon.
