Recipe: Beans For A Crowd (pic)
 
Beans For A Crowd

One of the required sides for a traditional barbecue meal is beans. I
occasionally cook for groups, and these are what I've been serving lately.
They are simple and easy to make, but they pack huge flavor. They're
thick and rich with a great balance of sweet, savory, and tangy.

Another great thing about these beans is that they are a great base for
adding all manner of other delicious ingredients. You could add peppers,
bacon, diced ham, pulled pork, chopped brisket, or anything else you think
belongs in good beans. Doctor 'em up and make them your own!

Ingredients
2 cans (55 oz) Bush's Original baked beans
3 cans (15 oz) Original Ranch Style Beans (or chili beans)
1/2 cup Molasses
1/2 cup Ketchup
2 medium Yellow onions, diced to 1/4"
2 Tbsp Bacon fat (or canola/vegetable oil)
2 Tbsp Plain yellow mustard
2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp Tiger Sauce (or your favorite hot sauce)
1 Tbsp Apple cider vinegar

Method
Preheat your oven to 325º.

Heat a medium pan over medium-high heat.

Add the bacon fat/oil and let heat 30 seconds.

Add the onions and cook until they are translucent and just barely starting
to brown on the edges.

Remove the pan from the heat.

Add all of the other ingredients, except the beans, to the pan and stir to
mix well.

Add the beans (do not drain them) to a large deep baking dish.

Note: I use disposable aluminum lasagna pans.

Add the onion and sauce mixture to the beans, and stir to combine well.

Cover the pan with foil and bake for 90 minutes.

Remove the foil, stir, and bake another 30 minutes.

Serve and enjoy!

Tip: Of course you can cook these uncovered on your smoker to really
take them over the top. You'll probably need to add a little water toward
the end to loosen them up.

Bush's are good beans to doctor up

That sounds really good! Here is one of my favorites that seems to go over well here.

1 # 10 can Bush’s Original Baked Beans (117 Oz.)
1 Small Bottle (18 Oz.) of Kraft Hickory Smoked BBQ Sauce
1 ½ Lb. Ground Beef
1 Lb. Sausage (patty, I use hot)
1 Lb. Bacon
1 Tsp. Ground Red Pepper
1 Tsp. Salt
¾ Cup Molasses
¾ Cup Honey
2 Tbs. Worcestershire Sauce
2 Tbs. Texas Pete
1 Large Onion Finely Chopped

Cook ground beef and sausage until well done, stirring constantly and mashing into a fine texture. Drain off fat and set aside. Cook bacon crisp and crush over the other meats just cooked.
Open beans and drain liquid. Mix the meat and all other ingredients with the beans. Bake covered at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

Thanks. The Ranch beans are very good, but I've heard that folks in a lot of areas can't find them.

I saw some at Kroger the other day around 2 bucks

"Bush's" beans ? I'll bet they go well with "Lou's Original Texas Brisket" Just throw the cello bag in the microwave , plate it, add the beans and voila! Barbecue.

I can get the #10 cans of those at a local restaurant supply for about $4.00 each.
