edited March 2013 in Soups, Stews, Chilis
2 pounds (4 cups / 907 grams / 1 bag) White Navy Beans
Water (10 cups + 6 cups = 16 cups)
1 pound Salted Pork Belly cut in thick slices or small cubes
2 Onions cut in half
2 cups Maple Syrup
1/2 cup Molasse
1/2 cup Chili Sauce
3 teaspoons Dry Mustard Powder

Soak the beans overnight at room temperature in a plastic container with 10 cups of cold water.

Drain and discard the water.  Rinse the beans with clear water.

Transfer the beans to a dutch oven and add 6 cups of cold water.  Bring to boil over medium-high heat, reduce the heat  to low and let simmer for 30-45 minutes until the beans are tender (uncovered).

Mix the remaining ingredients and transfer to the dutch oven with the beans.

Place the cover on the dutch oven and bake on the egg @ 250F for 3 hours.  Remove the cover from the dutch oven and continue baking @ 250F for ~4 more hours adding wood chips to the fire.

Enjoy!

    @CincyTiki I live in the province of Quebec. The recipe is adapted from my mother's recipe. She keeps the water after soaking the beans; I prefer to discard and change it. She uses half and half brown sugar and maple syrup; I prefer to use just maple syrup. She uses bacon; I prefer to use salted pork belly. She uses ketchup; I prefer to use chili sauce.

    If I go back two generations we were in Montreal, then Burlington, VT, so it fits. :D We would soak overnight then use 1/2 tsp baking soda in the bean soaking water, boil for 1/2 hour then discard the water (and the skins that would pop off) and proceed much like you describe. The 1/2 hour preboil shortens the overall cooking time to 5 hours total. +1 on the salt pork (tough to find in Cincy), molasses and maple syrup (is that +3?)

    LOL That's a sweet bean recipe. I think the sugar helps with the "fermentation". I have been having different types of beans for the past days; the "aftermath" mode is kicking in...

    @JMCXL I think that it was a 9 quart Lodge dutch oven and it looks about half full.  4 cups of dried beans will yield about 10-12 cups of cooked beans.

    @Canugghead I don't think that he was serious, people get way too emotional these days. :)

    We keep all the best maple syrup here (clear and extra-clear).  Dark and amber is exported along with some medium.

    @JMCXL You can cook them ahead of time too.  They are even better reheated.  This is a sweet bean recipe like the ones served in sugar shacks.  You can reduce the sugar (probably by half) and they will still be good.

    In my experience, there are a few meals that are much better reheated. For example, I will take frozen and thawed homemade spaghetti sauce over fresh any day.
