    For those of you who prefer a more savory style of bean recipe (this one doesn't have the sweetness of my WBB), I know you're going to love my Ranch Style Beans.




    1 cup dried pinto beans, see direction #1
    6 bacon slices
    3 cups water
    1 (15 ounce) can stewed diced tomatoes
    1 bell pepper, chopped
    1 onion, chopped
    1/2 jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped (optional)
    2 tbls Worcestershire sauce
    1 tbls brown sugar
    1 tsp chili powder
    1 tsp paprika
    1 tsp cracked black pepper
    1/2 tsp dried mustard
    1/4 tsp ground ginger
    salt to taste


    1. Soak pinto beans over night or boil for 1 minute then let sit covered for one hour.
    2. Fry bacon until just slightly crisp, remove from pan and dice. Saute onion and bell pepper in bacon grease until translucent.
    3. Drain soak water from beans and add the 3 cups water. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to simmer. Cook until beans are tender – about 1 1/2 - 2 hours. Drain well.
    4. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. . If you are adding the beans to a smoker, move on to Step #7.
    5. Bring mixture to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to simmer
    6. For a thicker sauce, remove cover and continue to cook until desired consistency is reached.
    7. If you are going to smoke the beans, pour bean mixture into a 9 X11 X 2 3/4 inch foil pan and place in smoker. Give the beans a stir several times through out the smoke
