- 1 pound of navy beans
- 4 tomatoes chopped fine
- 1 onion chopped fine
- 1/4 cup molasses
- 1/4 cup of brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon of salt
- 5 cups of water
- 2 slices of thick bacon chopped into cubes
- 1 tablespoon of chile powder
- 1 tablespoon of ground mustard
Combine all ingredients together in a cast iron pot except salt. Cover with lid. Bake at 300 degrees for 4 hours or until beans begin to soften. Add salt and remove lid. Bake until beans are nice and thick with sauce.
I have fired up the Smokenator 100 to smoke some ribs. They will be the perfect accompaniment to some baked beans. A green salad with some vine ripe tomatoes is in order. We will enjoy a nice meal without heating up the house.
