Copycat Love's Barbecue Pit BBQ Baked Beans

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Iron Woman

I used to work at Love's BBQ restaurant as a server and they used to make the best baked beans! There were plenty of restaurants in California before, but a lot of them had closed down. If you've eaten there before, you know they have the best baked beans.

This was super close. The one thing this misses which loves had was all the cuttings and scraps from their bbq meat which was added to the beans. You can easily add some Lloyds bbq pork from the store( the kind that's in the plastic containers) and it is spot on. Of course, if you smoked some ribs or brisket and added scraps would work xlnt too
