Any suggestions/tips for dehydrating a big can of pork & beans?

Chicagored served that. He said he just spread it on a tray and dehydrated it. Not sure there was a lot of pork chunks in it. Rehydrated really well to go with second night brats. I'd put them on parchment paper but a roll up tray would work well I suspect.

Drain them first then spread on parchment paper. They rehydyrate quickly and taste great!

Thanks Bill. I spread it on a tray and set the dehydrator to 145 for the first half hour then turned it down to 135. I'll post results when I rehydrate it. If I can get acceptable results the pork & beans will be part of a shore lunch with fried potatoes and onions and fresh caught walleye.

Mmmm. Sounds tasty. Think I'll give it a try.

I just pour them on my fruit trays. I do not drain them at all. I do get low fat ones, but don't know if that makes any difference or not. Same way that I do refined beans.

I poured it out on the roll up trays for about 6 hours at 140 or so. Then I turned it over and let it go another 2 hours. I don't drain the beans first. Lot of flavor in the sauce.

I put a 22 oz can of Bush's Bourbon and Brown Sugar on a solid liner sprayed with Pam for 12 hours or so--turn over once.Seal in a vacuum bag that can also be used to rehydrate and heat in boiling water.Delish with dehydrated coleslaw and a bunch of walleyes.

No, there's a little known clause buried in The Wilderness Act, lobbied in by the Minnesota Women's Christian Temperance Union, I think it's a subsection of the part that bans mechanical portaging devices. It is permissible to carry in dehydrated beans, and bourbon separately, but clearly, as God intended they are not to be mixed. You do so at the risk of having your bourbon confiscated. #^)
