Georgetown VFD Beans

More than one volunteer fire department uses an annual barbecue dinner to raise funds for equipment. When these firemen get smokin’, they turn out some of the best’ que in the state.

8 pounds dry pinto beans
1 teaspoon crushed dried oregano
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup salt
1/2 pound bacon, chopped

Rinse beans and soak in water overnight. Drain and rinse well, then transfer beans to a large pot. Cover with water to 1 inch above beans and then place over heat. After beans begin to simmer, add remaining ingredients. Simmer for 2 hours or until beans are tender.
