We love making Smoker Recipes to make dips, smoked meats and more. Smoking our vegetables takes them to the next level. These green beans are one of our favorite and is loaded with flavor.

These green beans are great to be served for your Thanksgiving meal or for any special occasions. If you love these green beans, make Smoked Mashed Potatoes, Smoked Asparagus, Smoked Potato Salad or Smoked Sweet Potatoes.

Why This Recipe Works:

We love smoking our green beans because they taste amazing and topped with simple spices. We smoked our greens beans with hickory wood chips but you can also use pecan wood chips.

Ingredients: 

Ingredients - fresh green beans, butter, pepper, salt, garlic powder
  • Fresh Green Beans (washed and trimmed) 
  • Butter (melted) 
  • Black Pepper

  • Garlic Powder

Variations Ideas:

  • Green Beans – We used fresh in this recipe but feel free to use canned green beans or frozen green beans.
  • Add Bacon – For added flavor cook the greens with chopped bacon. You can use pork bacon or turkey bacon. Ham hock would also be a delicious addition.
  • Vegetables – Since we cook the green beans in a disposable pan, you can easily add in other vegetables. Add in onion, red potatoes or pour in chicken broth.
  • Seasoning – You can easily change the seasoning to what you prefer. We have even added in BBQ sauces for added flavor. We have even added smoked garlic to the green beans.

Step by Step Instructions: 

  • Step 1 – Preheat the smoker to 275 degrees Fahrenheit.

Recipe Tips:

  • Trim and Wash Green Beans – Before smoking green beans we recommend trimming the greens to cut off the bad ends.
  • Combining Ingredients – Combine ingredients with seasoning and butter until fully covered.
  • Smoking Green Beans – We recommend stirring the green beans throughout the smoking process. This ensures that they all sides cook evenly.
