This is a great recipe and a big hit for potlucks, football games and family gatherings. Goes well with barbequed chicken, or any outdoor barbeque meats. I have used this recipe for many years and am always tweaking it a bit everytime I make it. Instead of the bacon, I have added smoked ham, bratwurst and have even used beef hot dogs. ENJOY!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all ingredients in a large heavy stock pot. I use a large foil throw away for ease of cleanup. Bake at 300 degree oven for 2 1/2 or 3 hours.
  2. Also great in the crockpot. If made in the crockpot, I cook the onion in the same pan that I cooked the bacon in until onion is soft. I mix all beans, bacon and onion together, mix well. Combine rest of ingredients in large bowl. Layer beans and sauce ingredients till full. Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours. All fits in a 6 Quart crockpot. It will be full.
  3. Preparation time does not include cooking bacon. I cook bacon up in batches and put in the freezer to use later.
