A classic American side dish made better by brisket! These Cowboy Beans with Leftover Brisket are sure to steal the show at your next cookout. Loaded up with pinto beans, smoky brisket, jalapenos, and tangy BBQ sauce, the whole pot is cooked low and slow on the grill until thick and smoky. Serve it up as a BBQ side or enjoy on its own with a hearty piece of cornbread to mop up all the sauce.
