Here they are! Several tried and true bean recipes. Hope you find one you enjoy!

All of these can be enhanced by mixing everything together and then letting it sit overnight before cooking.

I also have the recipes for Gates and the Rendezvous BBQ joints...let me know if you need...I have never made them.

The simplest one ever. This is the recipe that used to be published on the back of the Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce bottle. Rave reviews, but have not entered it into a competition yet.

BBQ Baked Beans

19 ounces(1 can)s Baked Beans
1/2 cup BBQ sauce
1 small Onion(s), chopped
1 tablespoon Mustard
2 tablespoons Brown sugar
3 strips Bacon, crisp, chopped

Use your choice of sauce and Baked beans.
Combine everything and simmer for 1 hour.

Here is the one that has been posted by Tom I believe. This has been entered several times and always in the Top 10 with 4th place being the highest.

KC Baked Beans

28 ounce(s) Baked beans
3/4 cup BBQ Sauce
1/2 cup Brown sugar, dark
1 medium Tart apple, chopped, peeled
2 tablespoon(s) Raisins, golden
1 cup Onion(s), chopped
3 slice(s) Bacon, crisp, chopped
4 ounce(s) BBQ trimmings
1 teaspoon Sesame oil

Use your choice of baked beans. I use the Bush's with Onions and then skip the onions in the recipe. Also, use your favorite BBQ sauce. For the BBQ trimmings, you can use any leftover pork or beef. You can also substitute 2 TBS of bacon drippings in place of the 3 strips of bacon.
Dice the apples, raisins and onion into sizes the same as the beans.
Mix all together and cook for 1 hour at 350�.
I cook these in the pit for about 3 hours at 225�.

This is my own concoction that took 8th Place in Michigan a few years back.

Kevi's Harvest Baked Beans

1/2 cup Cider vinegar
1/2 cup Maple syrup
1/4 cup Brown sugar
3 teaspoon(s) Dry mustard
2 cup(s) Apple(s), diced
1/2 pound Bacon

Combine all ingredients, except bacon, in baking dish.
Place bacon over top of beans. You can also use any leftover BBQ trimmings, either pork or beef, in place of the bacon.
Cook at 350� for 45 minutes, uncovered.
I smoke these in my pit and will cook for 3 hours at 225�.

For those who like a little whiskey with their beans!
