    Delicious!!!! Took a double batch of these beans to a family cookout and everyone loved them. The sweet and the heat was just right. A step up from plain baked beans that will be a ‘go to’ for family bbq’s and pot luck dinners! In short, you won’t be sorry if you make these.

    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 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!

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

    These beans were very good! I followed the recipe as written..except the green pepper.. and my hubby put it in his smoker with the pork shoulder he was doing. I was leary about the pineapple but it turned out great!
