Danny’s Smoked BBQ Beans

Baked Beans Recipe

These are named in honor of my brilliant cousin, Dr. Danny Haberberger, who created this outstanding recipe.  Others have had a hand in it, including some of my own thoughts, but Danny is the genius behind this deliciousness.

There are a couple of ways you can prepare these beans.  I’m going to give the easiest, basic, “medium” recipe in the box below, but explain how to change it up and have fun with it here.  You can take the base recipe below and really make it your own with a few simple fun tweaks.

Baked Beans Recipe

– No onion.
– Mild Sausage, like pork sausage
– Mild rub, like my all purpose rub or another sugary pork rub
– Sugary BBQ Sauce, like Blues Hog original or Sweet Baby Rays Hickory Brown Sugar

– Whole onion
– Spicy Sausage, like Salsiccia, rubbed up with rib/spicy rub and smoked for 1 – 2 hours. (see picture)

Baked Beans Recipe
– 2 tbs Frank’s Hot Sauce…or a heckuva lot more if you can handle it!
– 2 tbs Rib Rub, Cajun Rub, or other spicy rub
– Spicy Sauce, like my BBQ Sauce Recipe (maybe with an added kick of an extra tsp of Cayenne)
