Steps

Pit Beans

      Prepare your Smoker
      Prepare your smoker at a temperature of 250 degrees. I recommend a smoking wood or pellet such as oak, mesquite, hickory or pecan. In this video we used post oak in a Mill Scale 94 gallon offset smoker. 

      Prepare your Grill
      While your smoker is coming to temperature, prepare your grill for direct, high heat cooking. This step could also be accomplished on a stove top.

      Cook the Veg & Ground Beef
      Add some cooking oil to a hot cast iron skillet. Sauté the onion and bell pepper until translucent.

      Add the ground beef. Incorporate with the onion and pepper. Season with Meat Church The Gospel BBQ Seasoning. Continue cooking until the ground meat is at least 165 internal temperature.

      Remove the pan from the heat. Drain and set aside.

      Cook the Beans
      Add the beans and sweet bbq sauce to the sautéed mixture.

      Season with more The Gospel.

      Mix to incorporate throughly.

      Place the pan in the smoker.

      Smoked Beans

      Cook for 2 - 4 hours uncovered, stirring occasionally. 

      There is so much latitude with this cook. If you are in a hurry, you can cook at 375 for 30 minutes or you can lower the temperature and smoke even longer. You can foil the pan after several hours if you do not want the beans to take on any more smoke.

      When you have smoked the pit beans for your desire amount of time, remove from the smoker and allow to cook. Enjoy one of my favorite side dishes for every BBQ!
