BBQ Baked Beans
Oh so you liked baked beans? Well I got a finger lickin good, er should I say bowl lickin good recipe for you right here. These BBQ Baked Beans are made from scratch and are baked with bacon. I just won you over with the bacon, didn’t I?
Saturday we did a BBQ again. BBQ at our house is a common thing. We have a smoker so why not? This time we smoked ribs, chicken and corn. I made Smokey Chipotle Mac n Cheese and BBQ Baked Beans to go along with this feast. It’s safe to say that the baked beans were the BEST baked beans I’ve ever had. The mac n cheese was phenomenal as well and I will be sharing that recipe with you later this week. So sit tight. I know, you wish you had the delicious mac n cheese recipe sitting in front of you right now but trust me, these beans are sure to make you forget all about the mac n cheese. This is a Julie original – I made this recipe up using the taste test method! I hope you enjoy this recipe.
