The ham might have had top billing (and a space on the top rack in Bubba Ho-Keg), but the smoke beans were the hit of this meal. Don’t get me wrong, the ham was excellent. Especially with the mustard, molasses, brown sugar, maple sugar, and clove basting sauce. But the beans were the recipient of not only any sauce that happened to drip off the ham, but all of the meat drippings as well.
No complaints were registered at the dinner table. Mission accomplished on satisfying multiple requests for holiday dinner entrees. Now it’s time to go sit on the couch and relax after a very pleasant day.
I hope all of you out there enjoyed your Christmas as much as we did. Happy Holidays!
