As you can see I am prepping this week for barbecue. Yesterday was some awesome potato salad. Today we are making cowboy baked beans. I wanted to make beans from scratch. Just a word of warning. Making beans from scratch takes longer than barbecueing a whole hog. The end result, was totally worth it. And to my frequent reader Bond, yes, there is bacon and beer in this recipe.
The baked beans were soft, tender and delicious. As you can see from the picture above the beans are laced with smokey bacon and some of the trimmings from my pulled pork. Pork and beans is the best combination in the world.
