baked beans question

Either tomorrow or Sunday I'm going to take my bean pot that I rejuvinated and seasoned for a test run. I'm going to cook baked beans the ribs. I was going to set the bean pot on the rack while I was cooking the ribs low and slow for about 5 hours at 250. My question is will this be a good heat and length of time for the beans?

Thanks in advance and Go Blue beat Northwestern


  • depending on what type of beans your using, 5 hours is probably way too long ... i use bush's canned beans that have been doctored up with onions, green peppers, bacon strips, and my homemade barbeque sauce and i cook them for 1 hour at 350 ... if cooked longer the beans become too soft and mushy ... if your soaking your beans and starting from scratch a longer cook may be in order ... also, i have heard that you shouldn't cook anything with a tomatoe base in cast iron that has been freshly seasoned ... the acid eats away the seasoning ... and remember that after every use you need to coat the inside of the cast iron with a thin layer of pam spray, crisco, or cooking oil after washing with water only , no soap ... check the website for proper care of cast iron

    not enough time for cooking beans from scratch, too long for beans from a can.
