Soak raw beans in the cold water for about 4 hours. Pour out the soaking water.
In the pressure cooker (6 qt) bowl add beans, whole onion, whole garlic cloves, roughly chopped carrot, smoked meat and/or sausage. Add water to max level. Add salt, black peppercorn, crushed peppers, and garlic powder.
Put the lid on and cook on "beans" settings for about 2 hours. If you cannot cook that long in one go, it's ok to program cooker twice.
