Kansas City is famous for their BBQ and the Smokehouse Restaurant is a popular place to go. My sister-in-law has a recipe for beans that she calls "Smokehouse Beans" that taste just like the restaurant beans. I make them for large gatherings or half the recipe for the family. Enjoy!

These beans are excellent, cook them in the oven or on the smoker, let them cook till almost all juice is gone. Fantastic the next day, hot or cold. To the people who are complaining about this is not a perfect replica because the recipe doesn't include burnt ends, just put them in yours. Thank-you for sharing. Love these.

Yum! I used a hickory smoked barbecue sauce and we loved these beans. Thanks for sharing. Made for What's on the Menu tag.

These were very good Barbequed Beans. I used "Mississippi Barbeque Sauce" brand in mine. I agree with the post that said the burnt ends are much better in it, but I was looking for something that tasted good; not necessarily the exact same taste. Thank you for the recipe.
