Directions

In a large, heavy-bottomed pot or Dutch oven, add the bacon and canola oil, turn the heat to medium-high and cook the bacon until it starts to crisp, 4 to 5 minutes.

Add the red onions and green pepper, season with salt and pepper and saute over medium-high heat until the vegetables have softened, about 5 minutes. Add the beans, barbeque sauce, maple syrup, vinegar and mustard. Bring to a simmer, cover, reduce the heat to low and continue to cook the beans, about 45 minutes. Remove the lid and cook uncovered until the sauce has reduced and thickened and the flavors have developed, about 15 minutes. Just before serving, adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper.

    Would posters be able to give their brands of Carolina bbq sauces? Mine was too much vinegar

    These beans are so delicious and definitely worth making. They are a little different with the northern beans but way healthier and super super delicious. My son said they were the best beans he's ever had. Love love love

    This is the best baked beans recipe I've ever tried! They aren't actually "baked" but rather cooked on top of the stove. The sweetness of the Carolina-style BBQ Sauce (I used Sticky Fingers brand and the smokiness of the applewood smoked bacon is fantastic. Took a double batch of these beans to an office party and everyone said they were the best they'd ever had! This one is going in my permanent favorites!
