Bourbon BBQ Baked Beans

Growing up as a kid, we had pork and beans with hot dogs in them. My bbq baked beans recipe is my blend of the two. It’s an easy recipe to make for entertaining guest year around.

Bourbon BBQ Baked Beans Cooking Tips:

Use your favorite baked beans. I use Bush’s for this recipe.

You do not have to grill your sausage. However, you can cook them for 2-3 minutes in a skillet, remove from the skillet, then proceed with the recipe as written. Use your favorite sausage or smoked sausage for this recipe.

Mix the chili powder, dry mustard, kosher salt and cayenne together, and add it in three phases. Before you add the garlic, after you add the garlic, and after you add all the ingredients to the pot. This builds depth of flavor.

Can you make ahead?

Fridge: After baked beans cools off, place in an airtight container in the fridge for 7 days max.

Reheating: Turn on heat to medium, add all ingredients in a small or medium sauce pan, cook until mixture starts to boil. About 10 minutes or less.

Substitution Options:

Not a fan of bourbon, omit it from the recipe.

For this recipe I used a sugar free ketchup to reduce the amount of overall sugar but traditional ketchup will do.

Light brown sugar is a great substitute for dark brown sugar.

Sausage substitutes: 1 lb. Ground Beef or 6-8 slices of bacon.

You can make these baked beans in crock pot: after you cook the onions, jalapenos and garlic. Add remaining ingredients to the crock pot and cook on low for 3 hours.

You can make these baked beans in instant pot: after you cook the onions, jalapenos and garlic. Add remaining ingredients to the cook on pressure cook for 20 minutes.
