Kansas City is famous for their BBQ and the Smokehouse Restaurant is a popular place to go. My sister-in-law has a recipe for beans that she calls "Smokehouse Beans" that taste just like the restaurant beans. I make them for large gatherings or half the recipe for the family. Enjoy!
- 4 slices bacon
- 2 (40 ounce) cans pork and beans
- 3⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon dried onion flakes
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
- 1 teaspoon liquid smoke
- 1 cup barbecue sauce
- 1⁄4 cup molasses
- In frying pan, cook bacon to remove the grease, until tender, not crisp.
- In large roasting pan or crock pot combine beans with their liquid, bacon, and the rest of the ingredients.
- For roasting pan, bake uncovered in oven at 325 for 60 - 70 minutes. For crockpot, cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.
Yum! I used a hickory smoked barbecue sauce and we loved these beans. Thanks for sharing. Made for What's on the Menu tag.
These were very good Barbequed Beans. I used "Mississippi Barbeque Sauce" brand in mine. I agree with the post that said the burnt ends are much better in it, but I was looking for something that tasted good; not necessarily the exact same taste. Thank you for the recipe.
This bean casserole is excellent! I made this minus the bacon along with MarieAlice's Classic Roast Potatoes and these to sides were an awesome combination. I fed my family of 8 for two meals on this recipe and still had leftovers so I think this makes more like 16-18 servings. I will be adding this to my cookbook and making this again.
