Directions

  1. Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels; reserve about 2 tablespoons bacon drippings in the skillet. Crumble bacon and transfer to a slow cooker.
  2. Cook and stir ground beef and onion in bacon drippings in skillet over medium heat until beef is browned and crumbly, 5 to 10 minutes. Transfer ground beef mixture to the slow cooker.
  3. Mix brown sugar, barbeque sauce, ketchup, mustard, molasses, liquid smoke flavoring, black pepper, and chili powder in a bowl; pour over ground beef-bacon mixture. Stir well. Add baked beans, kidney beans, Great Northern beans, and pinto beans; mix well.
  4. Cook on Low for 6 hours; refrigerate overnight for 8 hours. Reheat in slow cooker until warmed, at least 1 hour.

I made this for a pot luck. Didn't change a thing in the recipe. Got rave reviews and was asked for the recipe even several weeks afterwards. Will surely make it again

I made these for a family reunion and everyone loved them. They were getting a little dry towards the end of the cooking time so I just mixed up a little water, ketchup & bar-b-que sauce and they were fine. I would definitely make these again.
