Just took the pot out of the smoker:
Took it into the kitchen and opened it up:
Almost all of the liquid is absorbed. I gave them a good stir and dished some up:
The beans are still intact, and the onion has vanished, except for their taste. The lean part of the bacon is still there, but the fat has dissolved into the sauce. The flavor is creamy and savory with just a hint of sweetness and a tiny bit of pepper tang at the back.
Some of the yummiest baked beans I've ever tasted. I'll be making these again and again.
