To get that authentic smoked flavor into these barbecue beans, add pieces of smoked meat to it. We always try to save something back from any smoke so we have something to add to soups, beans, and more. Burnt ends are the perfect meat for these beans.
Drain beans and mix everything together in a smoker safe pot.
Place in smoker at about 225 F/105 C and let cook for about 2 hours. Test every 30 minutes until it reaches the desired flavor and consistency.
It will be ready in about an hour but the longer you smoke it the more smoke flavor you will get.
