TIBS Old Fashioned Pinto Beans
- Ready In:
- 3hrs 10mins
- 1 lb dry pinto beans
- 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 medium purple onion, chopped
- 1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons black pepper
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 2⁄3 cup favorite barbecue sauce (I use TIBS BBQ Addiction Sauce or Head Country Original)
- 1 slab salt pork
- Soak beans overnight. Drain and rinse thoroughly.
- Fill large pot with water 1/2 way. On separate burner, fill medium size pot 3/4 full of water. Bring water in both pots to a boil. Reduce large pot heat to medium high. Add beans and all ingredients. Use the boiling water in the other pot to fill the main pot 1" from top. Stir.
- Cook 2-3 hours stirring occasionally and adding additional boiling water as necessary.
- Check beans readiness after two hours. A half hour before beans are done, remove salt pork and place into the freezer to cool. Once cool (10-15 minutes), use a fork to remove and shred meat from fat. Discard fat. Add meat back to the pot of beans and stir. Continue cooking for 15 minutes.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I'm a single Dad of 3 kids. I've been a bachelor for 15 years. I took an interest in cooking at an early age. My Mom is a fantastic cook. Before I was ever allowed to cook a meal on her stove, she taught me the importance of spices. After high school, I split time as a ranch hand and cook for a renowned area restaurant. I went to chili cook offs with the owner and over the years I also served as a judge for a few. I have always enjoyed grilling and smoking more than anything else I cook. I have created many of my own recipes. And adapted others to my personal tastes. I have cooked for a lot of people over the years. And although I never entered a contest myself, many people who have not only entered but won big contests have tried my food. And I have often been asked why I don't enter. The answer is simple. My reward is the look of satisfaction on people's faces when they enjoy what they are eating. I don't need a trophy to enjoy the art of cooking. I just want to serve a good meal to good people who appreciate it.
