Barbecue-beans are a favorite side-dish when cooking and eating barbecue.
They are filling,tasty and healthy for you.
I think of them as the king of baked-beans.
There is a lot of things we can add to the beans to give them great taste such as spices and different vegetables and adding different meats.
Also its great to add some fruit such as grapes to the recipe.
When the economy is going under baked beans help you maintain your food budget
History of barbecue-beans
Barbecue-beans trace their ancestors back to the cowboys. The slow cooking and the outdoors made baked-beans a staple for the early pioneers heading west.
The cowboys needed a food that could survive in the outdoors on the range when they were taking care of the cattle.
Well beans was just right for the job because the dried beans could survive for months until they were used,
And the beans were also good for the cowboys high in protein.
The pioneers were not rich people and sometimes meat was scarce even with hunting,
They could rely on the beans to get them thru tough times as they were filling and if cooked right kept the pioneers stomachs from growling.
Also the beans made the meats go farther because you could add smoked meats such as bacon to the beans and stretch the bacon farther.
