    This sounds very nice but you will definitely get much more depth of flavor with a smoked hock or a ham bone. Hambones are traditional but the hock is probably more flavorful. In a pinch or in a hurry I will use ham base in the stock but you just can t match the amazing flavor from the hock or ham bone. In mulit packs the extra hocks freeze well to be on hand for the next batch. Definitely going be a red beans and rice weekend. Hi! I m not a fan of beans could I reduce the beans to just 1 can of pre-cooked beans? If I do that, how would you suggest altering the amount of water and the cooking time? Thanks!!
