Vegetarian Husband willing to start eating meat if I make him BBQ Beans. Please help.

My husband is a Dont Ask Dont Tell vegetarian. This means that on visits to my grandparents in Kansas City we get BBQ beans from Oklahoma Joes BBQ. There is definitely meat in them. Now, we are back in London and he wants them. And I ve been patiently waiting for this day to come along where he wants meat.

Ive googled recipes and ingredients, but I dont think pork and beans in a can is readily available here. It will also be nearly impossible to get some good burnt ends to add to it, let alone a bbq sauce that I d use. Making it from scratch seems to be the only thing. What can I do? Im not sure if liquid smoke is available, but I can pretty easily get ahold of some schlenkerla rauchbier. Also, recipes that serve a relatively small number of servings as we only have a small under counter fridge.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
