  • 1 55 ounce can of baked beans
  • 1-1 1/2 cups burnt ends brisket, pork belly, turkey, etc.
  • 3/4 cup BBQ sauce bottled or homemade
  • 2/3 cup Dr. Pepper or equivalent
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 medium yellow onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons molasses
  • 1 tablespoon BBQ rub bottled or homemade
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  • Preheat your pellet grill or smoker for 250 degrees F. Add your choice of wood.
  • Combine BBQ sauce, ketchup, molasses, Dr. pepper, brown sugar, and BBQ rub in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  • Heat olive oil in a 12-inch cast-iron skillet. Cook onions and garlic until translucent over medium heat.
  • Add baked beans to the pan, then pour barbecue mixture over the top. Add your meat, and stir through.
  • Place the entire pan into your smoker, close the lid, and let it cook for 2 hours.
  • Beans will thicken a bit and take on a darker color when done.
  • Remove pan from the smoker, and let it sit for 15 minutes before serving.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 4-5 days. Freeze for up to 3 months in vacuum-sealed bags.
