One 7-pound can pork and beans in tomato sauce, such as Showboat

1 pound Brick Pit smoked pulled pork or your favorite hardwood smoked bacon, diced into small pieces

2 cups Brick Pit BBQ sauce or any good, tomato-based Alabama-style BBQ sauce 

2 cups loosely packed dark brown sugar

1 cup chopped green bell peppers 


  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
  2. Combine the pork and beans, pulled pork, BBQ sauce, brown sugar and bell peppers in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish or large, ceramic Dutch oven. Mix thoroughly using a wooden spoon. 
  3. If you are using bacon instead of the pulled pork, layer the raw strips over the top of the bean mixture.
  4. Bake, uncovered, for approximately 1 hour. The beans will get richer in color and ready to enjoy. If you used bacon, please be sure it is browned and fully cooked.
