Hickory Smoked Green Beans – Offset Smoker

Prepare the beans by washing them, removing the ends, and cutting off any stems. Place the beans in a colander. The colander in your smoker box and add a few chunks of hickory wood to start. Smoke for around 20 minutes in Offset Smoker, until they are tender enough to eat.

If you wish to remove them from the smoker, I recommend removing them from the colander first – that way you can scrape up all of the smoky goodness from your smoker box!

How to Choose the Right Hickory smoked Green Bean Sausage

There are two ways to smoke a sausage. The first and most common way is to use an Offset smoke tube that you can buy from your local hardware store. A smoke tube is usually made of metal, with a small hole in the side.

When you are ready to start smoking, place the tube in the smoker, fill it with wood chips and light it. It will take about twenty minutes for the wood chips to burn off and then you can begin cooking the sausage.

This method is fairly easy but does require quite a bit of attention. The other type of smoker is one that uses an electric element such as an electric smoker, gas grill, or electric oven.

This method requires less attention but costs considerably more money than using a simple smoke tube.

Green bean sausages are fresh green beans and Offset smoke over low heat for 20 minutes. The amount of time and temperature will vary depending on the size of your smoker, but 20 minutes should be sufficient for most smokers.

Selection OF Wood For Hickory Smoked Beans

Wood chips will burn off quickly and produce a lot of smoke. If you want your beans to taste like hickory wood as opposed to smoked green beans, then you will want to use hickory chips.

The flavor of the smoke from hickory chips is stronger than that of the smoke from other woods such as mesquite or apple, which can give your beans a slightly different flavor.

You can find hickory chips at most grocery stores where smoking or grilling is sold.

Smoking Time For Hickory Smoked Green Beans In Offset Smoker

Smoking times will vary depending on the size and type of smoker you use. A good rule of thumb is to start with 20 minutes per pound of green beans (1 pound = 500g).

Hickory smoked green beans smoke until they are tender but still have some bite. Also, make sure that you remove them from your smoker before they get too dry or brittle. You do not want your green beans to burn while they are in your smoker!
