  • 1 Tb Butter
  • 3 jalapeno diced
  • 1 green bell pepper diced
  • 1 yellow onion diced
  • 56 oz Bush's Baked Beans
  • 8 oz pulled pork
  • 2 Tb. BBQ Rub
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 18 oz BBQ sauce


  • Prepare grill for indirect heat around 250-275°
  • Saute the onion, green pepper and jalapeno in butter right in your cast iron pot or dutch oven over medium heat. Cook until the moisture has released and reduced and the vegetables begin to become tender.
  • Reserving 1 Tb. of the BBQ rub for later, add the dry seasonings to the vegetables and stir to combine.
  • Next, add the two large cans of baked beans to the pot of vegetables. Be sure to drain and discard the liquid from one can of beans before adding it.
  • Add a full bottle of BBQ sauce (or full batch of homemade BBQ sauce), the leftover pulled pork, and the reserved tablespoon of BBQ rub to the pot. Stir to combine thoroughly.
  • Place pot of beans on the smoker uncovered for about 2-4 hours, stirring about every hour.



We recommend smoking pecan wood for this recipe.
If you don't have time for a very long cook, go ahead and drain the liquid from both cans of beans before adding them.
