Hey guys, Mike Hedrick Pit Pirate BBQ. We are having a great time you can here, sizzle on the grill as we are working on the day. We got a whole bunch of barbeque chicken everyday, got going and now its time to whip up some barbeque baked beans. Baked beans you can make them in a million different ways. You can get them once in the can that are already, made up unless that dog tell you the secret and you know maybe you got your own thing. I’m going to go ahead and just take up some regular Pork and beans and I’m going to doctor it up my way. I think, if we add a little bit of salt, you don t have to add so much it s variant. I like really a good amount of coarse black pepper. I like to be able to see the black pepper in there a little bit as well. I like to throw in little bit of our rub that we made up earlier, that we made with our chicken. Remember that s just going to be some paprika, salt, pepper, sugar, a little bit of mustard powder and put that in there. I like a lot of baking; you could do this if you had some pulled pork around. You can pull out pulled pork up in here, lot of times people even go ahead and put up some Texas beef brisket in there. The kick it up really good, I like that as well. But if you don t have any of that, you just cook up some bacon, stick that in there, that s going to be good stuff. Crumble it up real nice, almost everybody when they doctored up they used a little bit of prepared mustard, little bit of that in there as well. I am going to go ahead and toss in a little bit of barbeque sauce. This is a standard barbeque sauce. This one here is got a little bit of sweet to it, which means it probably has a little bit of molasses which is going to have little bit of honey and that kind of stuff in there as well. We re going to go ahead and get this mixed up really good, get it all mixed up and we are actually going to put it right on the grill. Hey, we re sizzling on the grill as it is we’ll also put this out there as well, it won’t take too much long on it, chicken we’ll be finishing up. These beans in the cast iron pot, they re going to cook up really, nice really well on there. We re going to get these things all finished up. It s turning out really great, we re sizzling on the grill. We re having a great time here at Virginia and hey, we re just waiting for that chicken to get up to proper temperature we’ll tell you about that proper temp and grilling and all that here in just a bit right now we re still doctoring beans.
