Barbecue Bean Bake

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by LorenLou

From the family cookbook.....a hearty recipe to feed a crowd, or easily halved for a smaller barbecue. Easy to throw together, even with the long list of ingredients. Always a hit!

This one is in our family cookbook too, handed down from my favorite aunt! It is absolutely THE BEST bean bake I have ever eaten and is by FAR our favorite. Smoky, sweet and tangy... Can't be beat!
