Kimi's notes for this recipe:
My son Brian will eat these for a week. He absolutely loves them. Whatever beans you have throw in. I put different beans in each time depending on what is in the cupboard. Great for a potluck, camping or picnic.

Ur beans look awesome Kimi...I made something similar and I smoked them in the smoker along with the mac n cheese and ribs & sausages. OMG they were so good.

I wish I had a smoker...My dad made a homemade one growing up. He made wild turkey, venison, all kinds of things. I would like to get one of those ceramic egg grills. Jan had one in Korea. They are very popular now. A brick oven would be fun too. I really want to have an outside patio in the back yard with all these fun things.
