Baked beans are a staple in many people's households. They're a great source of protein and fibre. All that aside, you can eat them on toast, you can have them with grilled cheese, or burgers, and even pulled pork! This recipe is great for a crowd or to make ahead and freeze for a rainy day.

Barbecue Baked Beans

Serves: 15-20        Total Time: 4.5 Hours


  • 2 lbs. dry navy beans, soaked overnight
    in water and drained
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large white onion, finely diced
  • 2 poblano chiles, seeded and diced
  • 1 cup double-smoked bacon, diced
  • 1 cup fancy molasses
  • 1 cup prepared chili sauce
  • ½ cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp salt


Step 1
Place beans in a large heavy pot or ovenproof crock and cover with cold water.
Step 2
Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the beans are just tender (1 to 1½ hours).
Step 3
Preheat oven to 325ºF.
Step 4
Add remaining ingredients to pot and stir to combine thoroughly.
Step 5
Cover and place in oven for 3 hours, stirring every 30 minutes. Beans will become very tender and fragrant.
Step 6
Remove cover and cook for 1 more hour.
Step 7
Store in the refrigerator for 5 to 7 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
Step 8
Reheat beans in a 325ºF oven for 45 to 60 minutes. They can also be reheated in a heavy crock set on the back of a preheated medium (350ºF) grill. Remember to stir occasionally.
Happy Grilling!
