There used to be a group of us Vietnam vets that did some of the area cook offs, Here is the bean recipe that I think won 2ND place, might have been 3RD but who remembers stuff like that after 20 plus years.

Pinto beans

4 cups pinto beans, cleaned and washed, soak overnght

1 package bacon, sliced into squares.

Start cooking beans with the bacon, bring to a boil, cover and keep at a low boil.

1 1/2 hours later prepare seasoning.

1 T Chili powder
1 medium onion finely chopped, or 1 T of onion powder
1 jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped
1/2 t cumin
1/2 t garlic powder
2 t salt
1/2 t black pepper
1/8 t cayenne pepper

Combine the seasonings and add to the beans, finish cooking until tender.

Remember, no seasoning for the first 1.5 hours. Just the bacon and the beans for the first 1.5 hours. I have no idea as to why, we just did this way because it was in the original recipe.

Because it will make the beans hard. Don't season til after the beans are soft.

That was it, I knew there was a reason, just couldn't remember what it was.

If you have a smoker, you can take the lid off the bean pot and set the pot inside of the smoker. Even cooking the beans over a wood fire will add some smoke flavor to them. Either way makes the post washer whizzed off, that smoke or open flames adds work to the cleaning of the pot.

To make this recipe taste more like Ranch Style beans out of the can add a 8 oz can of tomato sauce and a little ketchup, start with about tablespoon. May take more, been years since tried that version

We had some this evening. I soak my beans the night before and crock em all day. Flash brown some owens breakfast sausage, couple onions, 3 or 4 cloves of garlic, diced up, one teaspoon of beef boulion, two tablespoons of liquid smoke (to taste)salt and pepper to taste.

i have and the beans were excellent! whats also good is to take the fatty part of the brisket or the trimmings and chop them up really good and add that to your beans............whenever i do my briskets which is pretty regular this is always a must according to my better half!
