Baked Beans Recipe


  • 4 cans Bush’s Baked Beans we use a combination of maple, onion, and original varieties
  • ¼ to ½ lbs. bacon thick cut
  • 3 tablespoons BBQ sauce
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup onions
  • 6 drops liquid smoke


  • Brown the bacon, and saute the onions. Bobby does this separately, but I often put both in the skillet at once to get the task done quickly and to make good use of the bacon grease.

  • Pour all of the baked beans into the cook pot.
  • Add the BBQ sauce, ketchup, onions, and bacon. Stir to combine thoroughly. Optional - save back a few pieces of bacon to lay across the top of the beans after they are stirred, and before they go into the oven.

  • Stir in the Liquid Smoke. I really think this ingredient makes all the difference in the delicious taste and smell of Bobby’s baked beans.
  • Bake the beans at 375 degrees F (190 C) for about 90 minutes.
