I'm full of beans, or at least my friends are

It isn't a big name cooking contest, but I won the baked bean cookoff at out Church. I smoked a pork-butt with apple wood while cooking the beans until soft. I used a combination of navy, great northern, and black beans. To the beans I added a freshly chopped onion, brown sugar, yellow mustard, mollases, salt, and chili powder, putting abit of each in at a time, simmering for a while, then correcting. When the pok was so very juicy with a great smoke ring (a few hours as it was only a 2 lb butt), I took it off of the Webber and cubed it. I then added it to the beans and allowed the whole thing to slow cook overnight and until 1:00 p.m. the next day. I corrected the seasoning and sugar/mollases mixure one more time, with just a little more chili powder. Nobody else really had a chance. I mean, who's put in as much time and use top quality ingredients as I did for a church bean cookoff that was a side theme to our anual corn roast.

I won a $25.00 Wal-Mart gift certificate that bought me a three-piece set of vice-grips and a crecesnt wrench. My freinds were happy (got rave reviews), my toolbox is happy, and we all had a great time. It was a good day on Saturday.

I'll use 'em to squish the individual beans for refried beans! Who needs tender beans when you got vise-grips? And they would be great for holding my pressure cooker together should the seals ever fail.

They also duplicate the action of chopsticks when eating at a Chinese restaurant. You have to be careful though, cause if you bang 'em on your teeth, it can change your smile.

Hmm, omitted words, would that be part of your recipe? (secret) Sounds really great to me. I love baked beans.
