  1. Place beans in a large container and cover with several inches of cool water; let stand 8 hours to overnight. Drain and rinse.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a large pot over medium heat. Cook and stir sausage in hot oil until oils slightly release from sausage and edges brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir onion, celery, and poblano pepper into sausage; cook and stir until vegetables soften and start to turn translucent, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir garlic into sausage mixture; cook and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  3. Stir chicken broth, ham hock, bay leaves, black pepper, thyme, cayenne pepper, and hot sauce into sausage mixture; bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer gently, stirring occasionally, for 1 1/2 hours. Add salt and continue simmering until beans are soft, meat is tender, and desired consistency is reached, 1 1/2 to 2 hours more. Season with salt.
  4. Spoon rice into bowls, ladle red beans mixture over rice, and top with green onion.
