BBQ Baked Beans?

What kind of beans are used to make them?
Will Navy beans do the trick?

Thank you

Munky.

Excellent question!! Now that I have a pressure cooker I am ready to cook dry beans and BBQ beans would be wonderful as I make a fantastic BBQ sauce.

I think I saw somewhere that navy can be used, also a small pink bean, others say pinto, still others say great northern.

I can't wait to see what the final judgement is.

Navy beans are a standard for baked beans. I don't see why they wouldn't work for BBQ beans as well.

Alrighty, I'll do the over night soak method. I'm in no hurry.
Most of what I found said to open up a can of pork and beans or canned beans.. Doesn't anyone cook from scratch anymore?

Put it all together in my CI and put it in the smoker for a while. I'm thinking a lot of chopped green onions and molasses.. I'm winging this one.. Wouldn't mind some brick oven baked beans either..
Let you know how it works out.

Thanks everyone! :)

Munky.

We do ours from scratch, too, in the oven with all kinds of yummy ingredients. We use navy beans. We bought the bacon to make it this week.

When I make beans from scratch, which hasn't been for a while, I used navy beans. Even after soaking they take a long time to cook, whether over a campfire or in a stove. I used a CI DO.

BBQ beans though, meaning baked beans cooked in a BBQ, or smoker, I open a can and use a foil container for the beans. I have never read a BBQ baked bean recipe that didn't start with canned beans. Not on any of the BBQ forums I've been to. That's probably why you kept running into using canned beans, Munky.
I add just about everything to mine; of course lots of bacon, brown sugar, molasses, diced pineapple, diced jalapeņo, onion, dried mustard...
Starting from scratch with navy neans would certainly put it over the top. You'd probably need to cook it for 10 hours or so, like a big pork butt.

pink beans for Chile and small white beans for baked or bbq. also have been known to open a can and rev them up.

Weird - I've seen very few that call for canned beans! It seems so natural to make them from scratch that it's automatic. But then I make pretty much anything and everything from scratch because I love the process, I know what goes into everything, I have a thirst for knowledge, a need to know why and how things work the way they do, and I just plain love food and handle it with great care!

Interesting. We must visit different BBQ forums/sites. Even Steven Raichlen's Best BBQ Beans on the Planet calls for canned beans. And he's kind of a BBQ guru.
I'd love to see some of those recipes.
