Last weekend, we had a family reunion to go to. This was Hubby’s paternal side of the family, where usually everyone would have dessert first, before the meal. Yes, everyone was afraid that they would not get to taste the pies if they waited to have dessert after lunch.
Since several weeks ago Hubby had smoked some briskets, we decided that we were going to cook this thing called Best Beans on the Planet. We would have some chopped brisket, and it would be perfect to go with these fancy Baked Beans. Hubby got this recipe with one of the grill/smokers he got last year. After googling it, I found that recipe was developed by Joe Davidson, who is known as Oklahoma Joe. So thank you Joe for coming out with this great recipe! 🙂
So, we needed the pork and beans, black beans, kidney beans, bell peppers (green and red, but I don’t have the red ones, so I used those mini peppers instead), jalapeno, red onion, brown sugar, and BBQ sauce. And of course, a pound of the chopped brisket.
So I chopped all of the peppers and onion…
Then drained the beans…
Dumped the beans into an aluminum pan…
Then the chopped brisket…
Then I dumped in the chopped peppers and onion…
The brown sugar…
Lastly, the BBQ sauce.
I gave it a stir…
And then the beans were ready to be baked.
Aren’t they pretty? They’re very colorful and tasty too!
Once they were baked, most of the juices were baked off.
So, if you have a gathering to go to, this is one of the easiest and yummies dishes you can make. It is practically a side dish, but the meat in it makes it a meal by itself. So, let’s dig in!
