Labor Day is the last weekend of summer for us. Kids are back in school, not ours but kids are. Vacations are over. And it begins to feel like it is time to start settling in for a long winter. For most of us, it is the last weekend of grilling. I know we will be getting in our fair share of charred meat and icy cold bevies this weekend, along with a big pot of these Homemade BBQ Baked Beans.
I was thinking of sharing a new favorite cocktail with everyone this weekend; but, then I started thinking about this recipe. I want you ALL to make these homemade BBQ baked beans for the long weekend.
This pot is full of beans, salt pork, spicy Chipotle, ripe peaches, and sultry rye. This baked bean recipe has depth and is not over sugary or salty, just full of flavor. Don’t be afraid of the peaches in the BBQ Sauce, it is not fruity at all, it is used more as natural sugar. Trust me, you will love it.
Have a great weekend & be safe!
Homemade BBQ Baked Beans
Most baked bean recipes are LOADED with sugar and salt. This delicious recipe is slightly sweetened using our Peach and Rye BBQ Sauce.
- 4 cups dried pinto beans - will make about 8 cups after soaking
- 1/2 pound salt pork, small dice
- 1 yellow onion, minced
- salt, to taste
- 1 recipe of Peach and Rye BBQ Sauce
In a large stockpot cover the beans with cold water. Set aside to soak for 24 hours.
After 24 hours, drain the beans.
Put back into a dutch oven and cover with water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to a very low simmer. Cook until the beans are tender; about 4 - 5 hours. I check every hour.
Drain, reserving one cup of liquid.
In the same dutch oven, add the diced salt pork and minced onion, over low heat cook until the onion is soft; about 10 minutes. Stir occasionally, to distribute the goodness.
Add the BBQ sauce, stir, cover with a lid and bake in a 325 oven for 3 - 4 hour until thickened. Stir occasionally.
Season with salt to taste.
This recipe takes all day but is worth it. Naturally sweetened with our Peach and Rye BBQ Sauce.

I see now from looking again, the BBQ sauce is not from a jar but where's the recipe..I'd like it. Thanks for sharing Denise. I couldn't help myself but retort...

Yeah, homemade my ass, made with a bottled sauce. You Americans call homemade anything that requires a bit more than opening a tin.

European - thanks for the comment. I wish I could say it was made with a bottle I popped open as it would have taken me less time to make then it did. But ... our friend, we make everything from scratch. :)
