Barbecued Lima Beans


1 lb. dried lima beans
4 slices bacon, dried
1 onion, diced
1 clove garlic
1 stalk celery, chopped
3 T bacon grease
dash of oregano
2 cans tomato sauce
3 T wine vinegar
2 T worcestershire sauce
2 T mustard
1 T brown sugar
salt, pepper, chili powder to taste

Soak lima beans in water overnight, drain, save bean liquid and add fresh water & bacon.  Saute onion, garlic, celery and pepper in bacon grease.  Cook beans in covered pot on stove until tender, about 2 hours.  Add remaining ingredients and bean liquid, enough to make it soupy.  Place beans in Electric Smoker (no lid on pot) and cook for about 5 hours.
