When I had my BBQ joint I didn't have time to make beans from scratch. So I would buy #10 cans of Winn-Dixie original beans, then drain them. Dump into a large bowl, add my own BBQ sauce, pulled pork, onion powder, granulated garlic, a little chili powder. Mix gently
so as not to turn to mush. Always got great reviews.
Oh, and I also used (please don't shoot me
) a little liquid smoke.
Seriously, people really liked 'em!
