“SOURCE : Derrick Riches, Your Guide to Barbecues & Grilling, In Texas, beans mean pinto beans. These beans are cooked up with brisket burnt ends and barbecue sauce to make them the perfect side dish for barbecue brisket. If you don't have burnt ends try a grilled steak cooked well. You will want smoky flavor for these barbecue beans.”
