1. Cut the smoked pork shoulder slices into 1" pieces, then simmer with the ham hocks in water for about 1 hour. Take hocks out of the liquid and let them cool (reserving the flavored water). After the hocks have cooled, remove the meat, cut into small pieces and save for later.

2. Render the bacon, then add the onions and cook half way over a medium heat. Add the garlic and continue cooking un til the onions start to caramelize.

3. Add the beans, chicken broth, tomatoes, meat, and Blacken and stir well. Simmer for about an hour then taste for salt and pepper.

4. Serve with Corn Bread.
