  • ½ cup BBQ Sauce*
  • 1 small onion, diced

Instructions
  1. Shortcut - Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In a medium bowl,mix together the BBQ sauce, molasses, and brown sugar. Set aside.
  2. In a large dutch oven or something similar, add in the canned beans, bacon, onion, and the sauce you just mixed together.
  3. Bake for 1 hour. Serve and enjoy!
  4. Longway - You will want to soak the beans in the 6 cups of water overnight. You will then reserve half of the liquid and set it aside.
  5. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In a medium bowl,mix together the BBQ sauce, molasses, and brown sugar. Set aside.
  6. In a large dutch oven or something similar, add in the canned beans, bacon, onion, and the sauce you just mixed together.
  7. Add in 1 cup of the reserved liquid. Bake for 1 hour. Test how soft the beans are - if not tender and soft bake for another hour. If you see that the beans are drying out, add more reserved liquid. I baked mine for a total of 3 hours.
Notes
*I used Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce.
**You can either add in the bacon uncooked, or you can cook it. It depends on your personal preference.
