BBQ Baked Beans

BBQ Baked Beans

This is another recipe that will be on our menu this Labor Day weekend.  I don’t think a good BBQ meal is complete without some baked beans.  Now, by “BBQ” I mean slow cooked pulled pork, smoked chicken, brisket or ribs.  Some people (Yankees) use “BBQ” as a verb, when it is truly a noun.  BBQ is the meat – not something you do with the meat.  You don’t “BBQ” burgers or steak – you grill burgers and steak. 

I’ve tried lots of different recipes for baked beans over the years and I finally combined them into one that had all my favorite things in them.  These beans are sweet and tangy from the BBQ sauce and have a great crunch from the french fried onions.   You could make a meal out of the beans alone.

  1. My bad, Steph! I'm one of those Yankees. I see it now that you've pointed it out. Forgive me? What time will the BBQ be served? ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. BBQ beans are required eating with BBQ aren't they? State law or something ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Too funny….my word verification is "hampig"

  3. I agree with you on the beans and I really like your BBQ comments. The word gets used to mean the meat and cooking style as you said along with a get together (lets have a BBQ), a cooking device (usually a grill), or any meat with BBQ sauce on it. There may be no hope when Pat Neely, who owns a BBQ restaurant, gets on national TV and says there's several ways to cook BBQ chicken – the grill, the oven, etc (I'm surprised he didn't say crockpot ๐Ÿ™‚ ), prior to adding the BBQ sauce. As a purist, I just have to bite my tongue and accept the way it is. Have a good one.
