Nothing goes better with a burger or pulled pork sandwich than barbecue baked beans. A little sweet and a little spicy, this delicious side dish will win rave reviews at your next backyard cookout.
Cook onion and, if desired, ground beef in a Dutch oven, stirring until meat crumbles and is no longer pink; drain. Stir in bacon and remaining ingredients, and spoon into a lightly greased 2 1/2-quart baking dish. Chill 8 hours, if desired.
Bake bean mixture at 350° for 1 hour, stirring once.
Fabulous recipe. Everyone says they are the best beans they have ever eaten. A real hit at parties. Taking them to a barbecue today for Mother's day.
