1/2 cup molasses
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
Freshly ground black pepper

Kosher salt, to taste
1. Place onion and bacon in slow cooker. Check beans for stones then rinse and place on top of bacon.
2. Mix brown sugar, molasses, mustard, black pepper, and water in large bowl. Pour sauce over beans. Cover and cook on HIGH for 6 hours or until beans are tender.
3. Stir beans well then add salt to taste, starting with 1 teaspoon. Let stand 5 to 10 minutes, then serve.
This recipe is from Budget Bytes. I really liked baked beans as a kid and I’ve been interested in making them for a while. These were nice and bacony but there was a weird taste that I couldn’t pinpoint, an almost burnt sort of taste. These were good, but I’m not sure if I’d make them again due to that weird taste.
Shown here with smoked ribs. It’s hard to post recipes for smoked foods since they’re pretty simple. In this case we slathered the ribs with mustard, spread a rub over them, and smoked them at 220*F until they reached about 165*F, around 4 to 5 hours. They were great.
