I Need Your Smoked Green Bean Recipes

Bottom Line Up Front: Please post a smoked green bean recipe. 

Before I start, I realize that y’all have been the K&G therapy group for 2017. Don’t send me a bill, I will store it with the Pottery Barn catelogs in the garage trash can. 

We lost (yet again) another great American last weekend. A guy in my Veterans group was struggling with some stuff and made a permanent decision to a terrible problem. 

He was built like the Jolly Green Giant, and all of his Marine buddies called him Green Bean. 

I am hosting a memorial dinner and I need a knock your socks off smoked green bean recipe. It’s out of my wheel house but I know we have some guys who would smoke a mesquite branch if they could so let’s have it.

    I'm sorry, that just sucks.

    I don't know if I got the link right, but we do this for the big holiday dinners.  I have wanted to smoke this but have been denied permission, I just need to try it on a regular weekend, but I know it would be great. I would put them in a foil pan and smoke for 20 min or so, then stir in the mushroom soup and maybe add a little more time.  Don't buy Campbell's, get a decent mushroom soup - I think we used Pacific brand last time.  It makes a difference.  Cut down on the time the beans cook in the pot if you want to increase the smoke time.

    Sorry to hear about your comrade.  Such a shame and a huge loss.   These recipes all look great.  I would have not add that if you can SV the beans before, it enhances their flavor big time.  You can do that the day before 183 for 1hr-1 hr 15mins

    @thetrim ; The suicide epidemic in our Armed Forces is appalling. No matter what we do we just can't seem to get ahead of the curve on it. My old Battalion alone has lost as many to suicide as we did in Afghanistan (which is saying a lot considering we were mounted with those 101st bullet magnets from Ft Campbell)

     Hmm...I haven't tried the sous vide. I literally haven't gotten mine out of the box yet to learn with it. Life has been a $hit show this month new baby and a weekly funeral. I bet I could get a lot done at once that way as well.

    @DoubleEgger ; I am curious to try those Peg Leg Porker ones. We tried them when @northGAcock was in Nashville and they were poppin!

    @Killit_and_Grillit I'm sorry for the loss of your friend. This is one of those situations where I am at a loss for how to help in any meaningful way. I have the greatest respect for the service of these men and women. I know there is a huge problem and I never know what to do. I did not serve so I have no idea what they are going through. We have a wounded warrior in our church who does a lot of work with troubled veterans. I think many folks in this country are like me - they would volunteer to do something, but we really don't know what we can do.

    It was late last night when I originally responded and didn’t read past the initial bottom line request. I’m terribly sorry to hear about this Veteran. Far too often, the demons of war come home with the soldier. Thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends, and his fellow servicemen/women
  • Sorry about your loss.

    I got this recipe from the BGE Thanksgiving 2017 Class at HQ.  It was the best thing they served in my opinion.  I did it at Thanksgiving and everyone dug it.

    2 lbs of fresh green beans.  (Cut the ends off and half them.  They cook better that way)
    10.75 oz can condensed cream of mushroom soup
    cup of crispy bacon
    4oz cream cheese
    6oz can French Fried Onions
    Cup shredded Cheddar Cheese

    Indirect @ 350

    Place green beans and soup in cast iron Dutch oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes.

    Stir in 1/2 cup of cheese and the cream cheese and heat mixture for 10 minutes.

    Sprink with French Fried Onions and remaining cheese.

    Let it sit in there until the cheese melts and the onions begin to brown.  Around 15 minutes.

    Sorry for your loss.  I can only imagine your friend must have been going through a lot to do this.  All the best to you and his family.
