This recipe is a Keeper.Delicious

I saw this recipe last year and although had to cut it back for 2 it was pretty good. Going to try it again, but this time in stead of ham, I am going to cut up a smoked pork hock I have, so shouldn't need the liquid smoke, but might use it as well. As I like spicy stuff, will probably add some jalapeno peppers as well.

These beans are very tasty!!Left out the liquid smoke,Put them in my smoker for three hours

i don't usually go for the beans, but these were really good.

Made per recipe and average fare. Second time I added 1/2 cup brown sugar and used red pepper; added cheese for last 10 minutes of baking time - much better. I used off-the-shelf Kraft Original BBQ sauce.

So far (7/23/14) not one of the four commenters have actually tried the recipe - what possible good are their comments?

This looks so good, & I love cooking with liquid smoke, I even add it to my potato salad! Gonna have to try this!

This sounds great. Could it be made in a crock pot?

What can be used to replace soy sauce. I have a daughter that is very allergic to any and all soy products. Thank You bubblinover

This recipe contains liquid smoke not soy. So it should be safe for your daughter as there is no soy found in liquid smoke. Hope this helps. :)

This looks phenomenal! I will have to try it this weekend!
