Are these drip beans sweet? I want to do some tomorrow but i don't like sweet beans. I also am not a huge fan of baked beans.

Any recipes for pinto drip beans?

Personally, I make 'em a little sweeter with pork products because it generally matches up the flavor better....
With beef, savory additives like granulated garlic (or minced fresh) any type of savory type spices, heartier onion varieties, any type of peppers you might like & leave out anything that might add "sweet" like honey, brown sugar, etc.

You can certainly make them much more toward the savory side with pork; there are really no set rules for this kind of thing...I've used canned pintos & soak & simmer from dry beans many times & they all come out great....celery might be a good addition.....

Just dump out cans ( or assume about how much dry bean) you'd like & start choppin' stuff 'till the amounts look right....it's fun to experiment with adjusting amounts of additives to get some good grubbin' beans.....always have some kinda soppin' bread on hand too !!!!

PS: Do not add BBQ sauce...crap's full of sugar..... :o

Yep! Pretty much what @1buckie says. This is something that has infinite possibilities.

They didn't really darken up.  I had the smoker going steady at 250 for about 4 1/2 hours but I had them down below.

And was I supposed to sauté the onions and peppers first?

Sorry, just now getting back to you.....

The "darkness" may depend some on what wood/combo was used....a lot of times I'm using oak blocks, with pork shoulder above dripping into the pan....fairly heavy smoke....

It also may depend on what additives were added.....the pans below were light honey & sweeter elements & then,  molasses & some other more savory type spices in the back....as you can see, one's light & one's way dark.....



I've never pre-cooked any elements, except for dry bean fix-ups, then those get the stovetop boil & simmer 'till most of the way done....

Your's LOOK really good to me.....how did they taste?

That's the real test !!!

They tasted great!  Especially the with the pineapple. I did smoke the ribs over them so they did get some of that flavor. I'll try them again for sure. Thanks for the feedback.
