Smoke more than just meat in your drum cooker. Try these sweet and salty baked beans with bacon, onions and dark brown sugar. Smoked to perfection.
Cook the bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat until slightly crisp, about 3-4 minutes. Remove the strips to drain on paper towels, let cool, then chop into small pieces.
Drain all but 1 tablespoon of the bacon drippings from the pan.
Add the onions to the pan and cook until they are just softened, about 2-3 minutes. Add the garlic to the pan and cook 2 minutes longer.
Combine the onion mixture and the remaining ingredients in a medium mixing bowl and mix well.
Pour the bean mixture into a 2-quart baking dish.
Cook on the grill grate 2½ hours, or until the top is browned and bubbly.
Desired Temp: 165º
