Texas-Style Baked Beans
Take the time to make up a batch of these authentic Texas baked beans the next time you have an outdoor cookout. They are sure to be a hit! These are great if you don't have a smoker, but if you have access to a good hickory or pecan fire, take advantage. For a real Texas experience, enjoy a bottle of Lone Star® beer for yourself and one for the beans while you make them.
To bake beans on a wood smoker, preheat the smoker to between 250 degrees F (120 degrees C) and 275 degrees F (135 degrees C). Pour beans mixture into a greased 9x13-inch foil pan. Cook in the smoker for 30 minutes. Cover foil pan with aluminum foil and continue cooking for 2 to 3 hours. Remove aluminum foil cover and transfer beans to a preheated 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) oven for 10 minutes to brown the beans.
