If you love beans, you’ll absolutely fall in love with these Smoked Baked Beans! Packed with flavor, cooked low and slow….this dish will be the hit of any gathering!
Last week, my hubby made the ultimate summer dinner. Yes, technically it is still Spring, but now that we’re all quarantined, who knows what season it is these days, right?!
We had my hubby’s ULTIMATE burgers (recipe coming soon), these Smoked Baked Beans, and corn on the cob. That just screams summer, doesn’t it?
I must say, I make a good BBQ Baked Beans dish, so when he mentioned wanting to experiment and make something for the smoker, I was slightly hesitant. Why change something that is already a winner, right? Well, in this case, WRONG!
The flavor of these beans were incredible and I didn’t even have to do any work! My hubby prepared these in less than 10 minutes, placed them on the smoker to cook low and slow, and BAM…..they were ready to enjoy with our burgers!
Next time, I think we will add even more jalapeno slices in because we LOVE heat. We scaled back a bit because the kids don’t get too excited about anything spicy and we weren’t sure what kind of heat these would have. You can add in more bacon slices, or just about anything you prefer!
Next BBQ you have (or go to), definitely add these Smoked Baked Beans to the meal plan! Your guests and you will be glad you did and leftovers….well, I don’t think there will be any!

Here is the smoker we have and LOVE: https://amzn.to/3dJ1hWw
Smoked Baked Beans
- 1 onion, diced
- 1/4 lb bacon, cut into small pieces (uncooked)
- 2 cans baked beans *16-18 oz
- 1 jalapeno, diced
- Cayenne pepper
- Place the bacon and diced onion on the bottom of your cast iron skillet.
- Pour the beans over the bacon/onion mixture.
- Sprinkle a bit of Cayenne pepper and Paprika on top (to desired amount).
- Place jalapeno slices on top of beans.
- Put skillet onto smoker and cook at 225 degrees for about 6 hours.
- Remove from smoker and serve! *you can also cook via indirect heat on your grill and if you choose to decrease time, simply cook the bacon and onion first prior to adding it to your skillet. Then you can decrease cook time to 2 hours
