How To Make Smoked Baked Beans

The perfect balance of flavors is what these smoked baked beans are all about. They're a great side dish to any summer barbecue.

Prep: 15 mins
Cook: 3 hrs
Total: 3 hrs 15 mins


  • 4 bacon, slices
  • 2 cup red onion, (about 1 large onion)
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and diced
  • 15 fl oz pinto beans, 2 cans, rinsed, drained
  • 15 fl oz white beans, 2 cans, rinsed, drained
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce, of your favorite
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup dark molasses
  • 2 tbsp. tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp. chili seasoning
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. black pepper


  1. Preheat your smoker to 250 degrees F.

  2. Cut the bacon crosswise into half-inch pieces. Cook bacon in a large skillet (cast iron) or Dutch oven over medium heat until rendered and crisp. Transfer bacon to paper towels to drain and set aside. Leave bacon fat in pan.

  3. Add onions to pan and cook for 5 minutes. Add garlic, jalapeño and stir for a minute.
  4. Add drained beans, BBQ sauce, vinegar, molasses, tomato paste, mustard, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine.
  5. Bring to a boil. Carefully transfer to smoker and bake 3 hours uncovered, until liquid thickens and beans are glazed. Add cooked bacon, stir through and serve.
