These Smoked Pork and Beans rank among the best of the best, made with great northern beans, bacon and chunks of pork loin roast, seared in bacon fat. Seasoned with diced onions and poblano peppers, this barbecue essential has a tomato sauce and chicken broth base with a savory splash of Worcestershire sauce and Dijon mustard. Full of smoky flavor, they’re warm, bubbly and sticky sweet with brown sugar and molasses.

About the cut: Pork loin is a large cut of meat from the back of the animal, running from the shoulder to the top of the leg. The loin roast, cut from the full pork loin, typically weighs 2 to 4 pounds and is available bone-in or boneless.

We made this recipe on the Longhorn Combo Charcoal/Gas Smoker & Grill, but you can make it on your smoker and grill.
