This is one of those recipes that really embodies true barbeque. Simple is always best, and this bean recipe has proven that for years, continuing to win accolades with family and friends. You’ll need barbequed brisket for this recipe – it’s the secret ingredient that really makes these beans the best on the planet.
These are so easy to make ahead of time, and the flavors meld together so perfectly - the brisket and bacon, combined with the savory sauciness of the molasses and brown sugar as these slow cook for hours - perfection in baked beans!
BAKING SCHOOL TIP: SWITCH IT UP!
On occasion, I will add one small 8 oz. can of crushed pineapple (in natural juice) to the pot. WONDERFUL!
Another quick idea is to add one small can of French fried onions, which have been crushed. Just dump ‘em in. Again, these add another level of flavor and texture to these beans.
Baked Beans can easily be made a day ahead of your barbeque. They taste even better the next day!
