Author's Notes

Yields 12-18 servings.

Optional cooking times and temperatures:
300 degrees F (150 degrees C): Cook for 2 hours
325 degrees F (160 degrees C): Cook for 1.5-2 hours
350 degrees F (180 degrees C): Cook for 1-1.5 hours


Switch up the meat: Use any single or combination of thick-sliced bacon, ham, pulled pork, or brisket – this is the perfect way to use leftover meat! All the better if they have been smoked or barbecued. No leftover smoked meats? You can substitute browned ground beef, breakfast sausage, spicy sausage, or hot dogs.

Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. You can warm these up easily by heating them in a microwave on 50% power, stirring occasionally.
Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Preheat your smoker following factory directions to 225 degrees F (108 degrees C); mild or fruit wood pellets are great for this recipe, or for more hickory flavor use hickory or mesquite wood pellets.
step 2
Prep a high-sided foil grill pan with non-stick cooking spray.
step 3
Brown the Thick-Cut Bacon (6 slices) over medium-high heat until crisp, about 5-6 minutes. Remove bacon from pan and place on cutting board to cool.
step 4
Meanwhile, reduce heat to medium and add Yellow Onion (1), cook in reserved bacon grease until tender, golden, and starting to caramelize, about 10-12 minutes, stirring frequently.
step 5
Chop bacon and Smoked Ham (3 cups) into large pieces and place in a prepared pan, along with caramelized onions.
step 6
Rinse and drain all Baked Beans (2 cans) and add to the pan.
step 7
In a medium bowl, mix together Barbecue Sauce (1 1/2 cups), Ketchup (1/2 cup), Dark Brown Sugar (1/2 cup), Yellow Mustard (1/4 cup), Maple Syrup (1/4 cup), Molasses (1/4 cup), Apple Cider Vinegar (1/4 cup), Worcestershire Sauce (1 Tbsp), Barbecue Seasoning (1 Tbsp), and McCormick® Garlic Powder (1/2 Tbsp) and stir until blended; pour over top of beans and meat and stir gently until well combined.
step 8
Place the pan on the smoker, close the cover, and cook for 2-3 hours. You’re going to stir the beans every 30 minutes until the sauce is thickened, reduced and everything is bubbling. Add more barbeque sauce, water, or beer as necessary to keep the beans moist; cover with foil when they reach your desired consistency.
step 9
Serve warm from the grill (sauce will start to thicken as it cools down).
