BBQ Baked Beans

We think BBQ baked beans should practically be a requirement every time you barbecue. This is one of our favorite recipes to make year-round, as long as we have our Big Green Egg fired up with some mouthwatering smoked meats.

Baked Beans ingredients

2 medium onions, minced
5 cloves garlic, minced
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 pound smoked beef brisket, cut into 1-inch cubes
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup molasses
2 cups chili sauce
2 cups ketchup
1 pinch ground cloves
1 bay leaf
1 cup apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon black pepper, ground
2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
1 1/2 pounds great northern beans, rinsed
1 1/2 pounds butter beans, rinsed


Baked Beans


In a large Dutch oven, sweat the onion and garlic in the butter over medium heat.


Add the remaining ingredients, except for the horseradish and beans.


Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer mixture for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally to avoid burning on the bottom of the Dutch oven.


Add the horseradish and beans and simmer for an additional 30 minutes over low heat.


Once the beans are done, remove the bay leaf and serve with your favorite smoked meats.
