Papaw’s Country Baked Beans

Country BBQ Beans

We’re from Tennessee where barbeque is summer time mainstay. Whither it’s a bbq rub or sauce, there’s nothing like smoking a side of meat on the grill for an outdoors weekend bit of fun. But my Dad’s bbq beans were also a side dish during the winter too. I don’t remember a single Thanksgiving dinner where a bowl of bbq beans next to the Turkey wasn’t part of our table.

One cold and rainy fall day, my dad decided we were having a warm roast for dinner. And that meant making bbq beans. I don’t remember how I got involved in fixing the meal, but this is how he taught me to make a country version of baked beans.

Preparation Time: 1 hour
Serves 6 to 8


  • 1 lg. can baked beans
  • 2 tblspns dark brown sugar
  • ¼ c barbeque sauce
  • 2 slices uncooked bacon


  • Mix all ingredients into a large sauce pan.
  • Cook on medium heat for 15 minutes, stirring often to ensure the brown sugar melts into the liquid.
  • Reduce heat and cook for 45 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Pour into a serving dish and serve warm.

They go great with corn
