Info
Lately I have been trying some recipes from Stephen Raichlen’s newest TV Show Project Smoke. This particular Saturday I picked 3 items to make and 2 of them went straight to my Favorites list. These were typical doctored beans where you take canned beans and add other ingredients to creat a tast bean recipe. The next step is to finish them on a smoker, low and slow. Looking at the ingredients list, they were all item I liked. So I was sold before making them, but these beans were even better than I ever imagined. The hickory wood gave them a great smokey flavor. What put them over the top was their surprise kick. In addition the the great flavor they had a sharp sricy bite to them. The only spicy ingredients were Dijon mustard and mustard powder. There wasn’t a tremendous amount of those two items relative to everything else, so it is a bit of a mystery. In any event if you like baked beabs with great favor, a nice smokey tast and a nice bite to them, check these beans out. The recipe on the website is linked to below.
