Food, Wine & Just Good Living With SaucyJoe

It started with a love of food, wine & fun and blossomed into a maddening pursuit of the best recipes, techniques, grills, smokers, wines, crafted beers, rubs, marinades and sauces... We do more than play with our meat though -- we review and discuss all things cooking, drinking, reading, laughing and living at SaucyJoe's.

Smokin' Beans

Work has been crazy as we sprint toward the end-of-fiscal-year finish line here at Collins Printed Circuits. I've been working on production schedules, outputs and inventory issues. Wednesday, life got more complicated. I had failed to notice that the next day was Food Day for September Birthdays. Yikes! I needed a recipe which took little time but had a great smoke flavor. So... I decided to make a side dish...smoked beans!


1-55 oz can of baked beans
1-22 oz can of baked beans
1 lb ham steak
1 yellow onion, chopped
2 TBLSP Yellow Mustard
2 TBLSP Mild BBQ Sauce
2 TBLSP Brown Sugar
1/4 cup Texas Pit BBQ Sauce (Famous Daves)

Mix the mustard, brown sugar and the mild BBQ sauce into a slather for the ham slice.
Slather the mixture over the whole ham steak.
Slice the ham steak into 1" cubes
Cut the onion into 1" cubes
Add the two cans of baked beans to an aluminum baking pan.
Add the Texas Pit BBQ sauce to the baking pan

Start the water smoker so that it puts out a medium apple wood smoke

Put the ham steak cubes and onion cubes into a vegetable BBQ pan and set it on the top rack of the smoker.

Set the beans under the ham in the smoker so the ham juices will drip into the beans.

Smoke for 1 hour at 250 F.

After the ham, onions and beans have smoked for an hour, put the smoked beans, onions and ham into a slow cooker (crock pot) for cooking overnight.

CPC folks start eating at 9AM. The beans didn't last to 11AM.

Another smoking success.
