These BGE – Baked Beans w/ Bacon are an excellent side for any cook and a must try! After smoking for about an hour in a cast iron skillet they become a delicious dish that has a lightly smoked flavor. If the primary meat is also being done on the BGE simply pull the Baked Beans off the BGE after about an hour and put them in the oven at 200 degrees while you cook the main course.

Ingredients

Setting up the BGE

For the baked beans we will simply be dialing in the BGE at about 350 degrees. The BGE – Baked Beans cook are direct heat with the cast iron skillet placed directly on the grate.

How to Prepare BGE – Baked Beans
