Best sides for BBQ? Try this Homemade BBQ Baked Beans recipe!
Updated: Jul 17
Normally I try to pick a YouTuber or other "famous" recipe and try to replicate it. This one I've been making it for years. I picked it up at a friends New Years party when he was smoking a whole hog.
I know the picture doesn't do it justice as I'm an average Joe and not a photographer but this is a sure crowd pleaser. Enough of the bone on to the meat... the recipe!
Homemade BBQ Baked Beans Recipe!
! Medium Onion Chopped ( I use Vidalia's)
1/2 LB of bacon (use your favorite- I go for Applewood)
1 LB ground beef ( you can sub an over the top style here or use left over brisket, chuck roast, etc)
1 Can each of Kidney, Great Northern, Butter Beans the 16oz variety. (Bush's or whatever brand you prefer.)
2 Cans of Pork and Beans (I use Van Camps)
1/2 Sugar and a 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1 TBL Mustard
1 Cup of Ketchup
Fry up the chopped bacon then remove and toss in the chopped onion till cooked. I like a little char on mine.
Mix all the ingredients and toss on the smoker for 1 hour. If you don't have the room these work great in the oven as well.
Brisket prices to high and spent a little to much on that whole packer brisket? You can forgo the meat and bacon and use the store brand beans and this makes for a really cheap side that will go a long ways and still taste great.
Let me know if you tried it and what you think!
