Homemade BBQ Baked Beans Recipe

Whenever we go out for barbeque, I always, choose baked beans as one of my sides. There is something so satisfying and so comforting in eating a dish like this along with a tri-tip sandwich and a double portion of Asian slaw.

I have had this particular recipe for baked beans in my repertoire for over 25 years. Comprising only five ingredients, cooked slowly in the oven for about five hours, these baked beans are always the star of the evening. This Homemade BBQ Baked Beans recipe serves a crowd -- a very large crowd.

If I have the time, I like to make this Homemade BBQ Baked Beans recipe the day before and refrigerate it. An hour before guests are to arrive, remove from the fridge so it can come to room temperature. Then warm on top of the stove over medium heat. Stir occasionally to avoid burning.
