BBQ Five Beans
A five dried bean mixture that is soaked, and slow cooked then made into spicy Smoked BBQ beans. This recipe has just enough heat to say “Oh Ya!” But not so hot that a fire extinguisher is needed to put out the flames. The beans have a long cooking time but its more of a “set it and forget it” until the beans are done.

BBQ Five Beans
  1. Fry the diced bacon in skillet with olive oil and garlic. Remove bacon when crisp onto paper towel. Add the onions to bacon grease and garlic and sauté for 2 minutes until onions are translucent.
  2. Add to cooked onions the crisp bacon pieces, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, BBQ spice seasoning, chili powder, garlic pepper, brown sugar, molasses, maple syrup, pepper flakes and brown mustard and cook for 1 to 2 minutes on medium heat. Turn heat off and remove from burner. This is BBQ Sauce for beans
  3. Add the cooked BBQ Sauce to cooked beans and stirring well. Place bean mixture in a heat proof casserole dish.
  4. Heat up smoker, with Green Egg want the dome temperature at 300°F. I used apple wood chunks for smoke. When smoker is up to temperature place on indirect heat close lid or door and smoke for 4 hours. Note check every hour on temperature and add wood chucks as needed.
  5. After 4 hours remove from smoker when ready for service. Enjoy with any traditional BBQ Foods.
