Sweet ‘n’ Smokey Green Beans Recipe



400 g cut green beans, drained
1 Tbsp garlic salt
110 g unsalted butter
2 cups packed light brown sugar
3 slices thick-cut bacon, halved
Suggested wood chips: Hickory or Pecan


  1. Preheat smoker to 120°C.
  2. Drain beans and place in a square disposable aluminium foil pan. Sprinkle garlic salt over beans. Cut butter in half and push the halves down into the beans.
  3. Sprinkle brown sugar over beans and cover with bacon slices. (To be less sweet, cut back on sugar by ½ cup.) Cover with aluminium foil and place on the second rack of smoker and smoke for 1½ hours. Remove aluminium foil and smoke for an additional 30 minutes. Remove from smoker and discard bacon. Stir beans well before serving.
