Spicy Baked Beans from the DO

This sylvester eve 2014, we had a good meal, and a friend of mine made brisket. To accompany that, I decided that it was time to do some baked beans again. I love them, but I don’t make them quite often enough.

I wanted to have a long go with some outdoor cooking, since I’ve missed a weekend, which is killing, of course, but nevertheless necessary. I really couldn’t make it last weekend.

So, to have a go, I fired up the coal starter and went into the kitchen for some preparation. I had some Butler Steak (about 1,5 kg) and chopped up 2 unions and a complete fresh ball of garlic. Garlic is ALWAYS good! I also made some cajun herbs myself, since I’ve read that factory prepared cajun consists of 60% salt, which I didn’t want.
