  Sweet Smoked Baked Beans I’ve been to more than a few BBQ’s, parties, and pot-lucks where I show up with these baked beans to see that more than a few other people brought beans too.  Every time that happens I end up going home with an empty container, a boat load of compliments, and a big smile on my face. With a rich smoky smell and a sweet...

Slightly smoky aroma and taste, with hints of a wonderfully flavorful rub that’s been absorbed throughout the meat. Although this is something...

This rub works great on any beef recipe on the grill or smoker.  I regularly use this when smoking beef ribs, Beef Tri-Tip, and Brisket.  It can be strong so be sure to apply it light and evenly on your brisket or ribs and not heavily caked on. A version of this rub was originally found on AmazingRibs.com . I’ve adapted that recipe for my use. ...
