Pop's & Dee's Smoked Baked Beans

Dee Stillwell


I grew up with my Pop making baked beans, and he always added onions, molasses, and mustard. Thru the years I have made them similar to his, but I am always adding extras to them. When we got a smoker a couple years ago, we started smoking the baked beans. We decided they need to be cooked this way forever. I add bacon, and more spice that Pop did, but they always remind me of him whenever I make them. I only wish my Mom & Pop were still here to enjoy them with us.

How to Make Pop's & Dee's Smoked Baked Beans


  1. Drain beans in colander, reserving 2 cans undrained pork n beans and add in when everything is mixed together.
    Spray deep 9"x13" pan with non stick spray...ot do as I do and cook the bacon in a 12" cast iron skillet..then saute onion in the same pan, add the beans and other ingredients....and smoke them in the cast iron pan..They turn out great and you have less pans to wash.
    Cut up and cook bacon until crisp. Pour off some of the fat and cook chopped onion in remaining bacon grease until opaque. mix beans with onion, bacon and all other ingredients. Smoke in smoker, uncovered @ 250 degrees for 3-4 hours. I smoke them when I am smoking a ham, brisket, or whatever we are smoking at the time. Enjoy!
  2. Sometimes I like to make and smoke my mac n cheese at the same time. Here's a link to that recipe.
