  • 1 pound bacon diced
  • 1 medium yellow onion diced
  • 2 jalapenos seeded and diced, can use 1 green pepper instead
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 cans great northern beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup Hey Grill Hey Texas Style BBQ Sauce or your favorite BBQ sauce
  • 1 cup brown soda Dr. Pepper is best, but root beer and cola also work
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons molasses
  • 2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 Tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 Tablespoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper


  • Preheat. Preheat your smoker or oven to 275 degrees F.
  • Cook the bacon and veggies. Preheat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add in the diced bacon and cook until rendered, but still soft. Drain off all but a tablespoon of the bacon grease. Add the onions, jalapenos, and garlic to the pan and continue cooking until the bacon is crisp and the vegetables are soft.
  • Add remaining ingredients. Add the beans, brown sugar, BBQ sauce, soda, vinegar, molasses, mustard, tomato paste, and salt and pepper to the pan. Stir to combine.
  • Bake the beans. Transfer the pan to the oven or smoker and bake for 1 hour. The sauce will thicken and reduce during the cooking process.
  • Dig in! Serve the baked beans from the warm skillet and enjoy.
