Thanks to those who fought for our independence throughout our great history. And a happy 4th to everyone. I just know everyone has their smoker or grill rolled out and is prepping a great meal to celebrate. I've trimmed a couple slabs of St. Louis style ribs, salted them and have them resting comfortably in the fridge. Got some bacon and trimmings from the ribs frying up to put in some of My Baked Beans. (recipe below) Wife making up some Mediterranean Orzo Salad too. Will be posting some pictures as things progress. Let's get with it guys and gals. We wouldn't want to disappoint the grilling Gods. Converted this recipe from one I usually make with dried beans. Do not drain the canned beans and add about 1 1/2 cups of water at the beginning. Oops, didn't post all of the instructions. Cut the bacon up into 1/2" pieces and partially cook. Add onions and peppers and sauté until onion is translucent. Add garlic and cook and cook another minute before combining with remaining ingredients.
