These old-school beans are sweet, smoky, and meaty, thanks to the addition of everyone’s favorite pork cut: bacon. Go ahead and make your grandma proud with from scratch beans, which have a meatier texture than canned.
SUGGESTED WOOD: Hickory
Pro Advice: To get some next-level ﬂavor, place the pan of beans underneath a cooking pork butt or brisket to allow the meat drippings to ﬂavor the beans. Be sure that the pork or brisket is over 145°F to ensure that no undercooked meat drippings are getting into your beans.
