These were SO good & different! Our first "experiment" on our new smoker, and they turned out great! I only used 1 jalapeno and removed the seeds, next time I think I'll keep the seeds and go with 2, as I didn't really taste the jalapeno, and I like heat! Thanks for posting!

Excellent recipe! I've made these for my family and friends several times. It's now a staple when barbecuing a Boston Butt. I've messed with the jalapeño addition to get the right amount of heat. We like using two peppers,but only using the seeds from one of them. I use the large Big Green Egg with a chunk of oak for smoking.

These beans are the best! I also like to use the leftovers as a cold dip for potato chips.
