I'm prejudiced, but I think my brother, John, is a wonderful photographer. A few of you have visited his blog, My Viewfinder, and have left him comments. He doesn't comment on blogs and I don't know why...I think he thinks he's busy. I'm his sister and he rarely comments on this blog, but that's life and I still love him anyway, go figure.
John and his lovely wife Theresa, invited us to his home this past Saturday for some barbecue. He lives on the other side of the Smokies from us, about an hour drive. Between you and me, i would drive at least two hours for his barbecue because it's just that good and slow cooked barbecue is like crack for me.
Dont' be jealous, these are the ribs he was cue-ing. Drool worthy!
Yes, there were leftovers and I was offered some to take home. No, I'm not stupid, I filled up a re-sealable plastic bag!
He also had some chicken on the smoker. YUM!!!
I snagged one of these to take home too.
Ah, the barbecue master in his habitat. I'm thinking we should do this every Saturday.
My contribution was baked beans. These are John's favorite. Now they are Theresa's too. A.J. shoveled down quite a bit too.
Both John and my sister-in-law, Theresa, commented that they hadn't seen this on my blog. They strongly urged me to post this recipe.
Ah-ha! Stalkers! I knew it!
Ok, so here's my version of baked beans. Just so you know, I came home with an empty dish.
Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, mix together, 2 cans of pork and beans, 1/2 onion finely chopped, 1/2 cup barbecue sauce, 1/2 cup molasses, 1 tablespoon yellow mustard, 1/2 14 ounce can of crushed pineapple. Pour into a 9x9 baking dish. Top with three strips of crumbled, cooked bacon and 1 small can of french fried onions.
Bake at 350 degrees for one hour.
