I checked the Archives and the best one is missing so here is the re-post.

Here's a recipe that works well with me and is enjoyed by all of my friends.
2 - 16 oz cans of beans (in Kansas City I use Bush Baked Beans)
Drain sauce out of can and discard.
3/4 cup BBQ sauce
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1 cup chopped smoked pork or brisket (or use bacon)
2 tablespoons honey
3/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard

Serves 6
Fold together all ingredients in a large bowl. Transfer to an aluminum baking pan. Place
in smoker uncovered at medium heat (225 F- 275 F.) for about 90 minutes or until heated though.

Hint: Next time you smoke a pork shoulder or brisket put some away in a freezer bag for use in your
beans. I use apple wood but hickory and oak work well, you'll have to experiment with your particular cooker.

Comments from Ray

I have changed the recipe a bit. I use skinned red peppers instead of
green. I also add a tablespoon of Head Country's Rub and a tablespoon
of Horseradish.
