48 to 52 oz. of quality canned baked beans (such as Bush’s)
Two strips bacon
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce
2 Tbsp. white vinegar
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup mustard
1 tsp. liquid smoke
Dash of Tabasco sauce
Dash of salt and pepper


Preheat oven to 350 F.

Drain off and discard some of the liquid from the canned beans. Combine all ingredients except bacon in a bowl, mixing thoroughly. Transfer mixture to a bean pot or oven-proof casserole dish with a lid.

Lay bacon strips on top of the bean mixture and cover pot with lid. Bake in oven for two and a half hours. Beans will be done when the bacon is cooked. Optional: Remove lid for the last 20 minutes, allowing bacon to crisp a bit and for a “skin” to form on top of the beans.
