Ham and Bean Soup is a great way to get extra mileage out of a Double Smoked Ham. You take the leftover smoked ham bones and slow simmer them on the stove in a pot of beans. I always make several hams around the holidays, so I stash away a couple bones just so I can make this ham and bean soup recipe on a cold winter day. I also try to leave a decent amount of meat on the bone to make sure our soup ends up nice and meaty. You can always supplement with chopped ham if you feel yours is too picked over.
Earlier this week I made an appearance on local news station Fox 4 KC to help promote the upcoming American Royal BBQ Contest. I was showcasing my Smokey Kansas City Pit Bean recipe that we will be turning into the judges later this weekend. This bbq bean recipe is sweet, spicy, meaty, smokey, and feature the bold flavors of our Smokey Kansas City Barbecue Sauce! Smokey Kansas City Pit Beans have been a multi-year winner at the American Royal and will be a sure hit at your next barbecue.
