Best BBQ Sides! BBQ Baked Beans with Meat and Bacon

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!
