    Ingredients:

    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

    Instructions:

    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.
