This is my baked bean recipe for BBQ competitions - I haven't won, YET, but these have fared well! Since you have to prepare the beans "onsite" - this is a stovetop recipe! If the beans are too sweet, add a couple dashes of hot pepper sauce - I use my own barbecue sauce (posted under "fat cat spicy sauce") so, they are usually pretty spicy. Also, I used Bush's Pinto and Red beans and Progresso Black beans.
