Butter Braised Smoked Green Beans

Grilled vegetables are great, but smoked green beans are even better when given a little zest & zing.

Course: Side Dish
Cuisine: American


  • 24 oz fresh green beans, ends trimmed
  • 8 tbsp butter, melted
  • salt & ground black pepper, to taste


  • Add the beans to the tray of a lipped pan, in an even layer. Drizzle the melted butter evenly out over the top, and using a pair of tongs gently toss the beans with the butter until well coated. 
  • Season the beans evenly, and liberally, with salt & pepper. 
  • Preheat the smoker to 275 degrees. Add the beans, and smoke 3-4 hours, tossing them every 30 minutes- or until tender shriveled, and slightly browned in places.


After the beans are cooked, while still hot, but before serving- sprinkle the beans with shredded parmesan cheese. Lightly, but let it melt and enjoy!
