Article written by 16 May 2013


• 250 ml (1 c) of diced venison
• 6 slices bacon chopped • 500 g (1 lb) cooked navy beans
• 1 red pepper diced
• 1 onion finely diced
• 15 ml (1 tbsp) Worcestershire sauce
• 15 ml (1 tbsp) Dijon mustard
• 5 ml (1 tsp) chili powder (more or less depending on your taste)
• 250 ml (1 c) ketchup
• 65 ml (1/4 c) brown sugar
• 125 ml (1/2 c) molasses


In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients thoroughly. Pour into a 23 cm x 33 cm (9″ x 13″) glass or ceramic baking dish.

Smoking Method

Preheat the Bradley Smoker to 105°C (225°F). Place baking dish in the Bradley Smoker on the top rack. Using Pecan flavor bisquettes, cook/smoke for approximately 3 to 4 hours. Stir once each 1/2 hour for the first 1-1/2 hours. You may wish to turn the smoke generator off after the first 1-1/2 hours but continue cooking the bean mixture.

To Serve

Little more is needed than a green salad and a crusty loaf or cornbread to sop up the juices of Venison Smoked Beans.

Note: Other meats, such as beef or pork can be substituted.
