Baked Beans in the first snow of the season...

I am approaching doing a long slow cook with $$$ meat rather gingerly. I decided baked beans would be an inexpensive item to cook long and slow. I soaked the beans last night. Got the grill started about 8. Assembled the beans, brown sugar, molasses, onions, salt pork etc.. and brought it to a simmer inside. Added some garlic, candied ginger, a dried cayenne and carrots to the traditional ingredients. Then put it in the egg about an hour ago. We shall see. Wish me luck.

  • You shouldn't need luck. The egg won't let you down. Please share the results.

  • Those sound delicious!

    Looks like you might have your pot sitting directly on the platesetter?

    You might want to put a little space between the two to avoid too much "direct" heat on the bottom of the pot.

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

  • Actually there is some little rolls of foil and then a broken chunk of pizza stone.

  • As I read suggested somewhere on here when I made a pie recently.

    Forgot to say I added some chunks of cherry too.
  • Where are you at? Feels like snow here today

    By all means, don't forget to give us the follow-up.

    Sounds great!

    Beans thickening up. Added a couple of cups of water.

    Better hope none of the Texans read this... They don't like beans in their beans.

  • Okay - a successful attempt at keeping a low temp for 9 hours. I was running between 250-280. I was worried about it but realized I am lucky if an oven stays in that range. My pot may never look the same. I tasted although the beans will be dinner tomorrow. They seem yummy. Smoky sweet but not overwhelmingly so.... My only thought is that they are a bit soupy. But I added water when I had to go to a production of Sleepy Hollow that my niece was in this afternoon.
  • Next time I will make them with maple syrup.

    I'd smother some cornbread with that...
