Info
This recipe came from the Big Green Egg Cookbook. These bean took less time to cook than any other made from scratch recipe I've tried-about 1 hour total cooking time. This was the first time that the Dutch oven was used on the Egg with it's own lid in place. The last 15 minutes were done with the lid off and I took the oppurtunity to add some smoke from an Apple wood chunk. The bacon was already smoked with Apple wood, so this seemed like a logical pick. The beans were a bit of a shock when I first tasted them as they were sweet and smokey. After I recovered from my additional shock I really ended up liking the flavor of these beans.
