Recipe by Wing-Man

I know it is a mouth full, but I looked at other recipes and none were actually smoked in a smoker, just in an indoor oven with liquid smoke. In 1997 I had some Cowboy beans and have not been able to find anything close till now. This recipe must be cooked in a smoker capable of burning wood. This is a link to the sauce I use - I used 2 - 55 ounce cans of beans
