  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate. Let cool, and crumble.
  3. Place the ground beef and onions into a large skillet over medium heat, and cook and stir until the meat is no longer pink, breaking the meat apart as it cooks, about 10 minutes. Drain excess grease. Transfer the beef and onion mixture into a large Dutch oven. Stir in the crumbled bacon, honey barbecue sauce, pork and beans, kidney beans, lima beans, black beans, brown sugar, cider vinegar, liquid smoke, salt, and pepper.
  4. Cover, and bake in the preheated oven until bubbling, about 1 hour.

OK, I know I'm not supposed to review if I changed the recipe, but these were THE MOST amazing beans I have had outside of an authentic BBQ restaurant. First of all, the only things that I changed were 1) I omitted the meat because I wanted a vegetarian-friendly side dish, and 2) I just dumped everything in the slow cooker and let it cook on low for a few hours. AMAZING!!! I will be making these beans often because EVERYONE raved about them. Thanks for the fabulous recipe!

Did not like much. The bbq sauce was just a too strong and overpowering taste. Next time will stick with the basics:pork n beans + ground turkey

Love them beans! BBQ sauce and brown sugar give this a great flavor. I threw some Jim Beam in there as well instead of the cider vinegar.

a great meal, not too complicated and tastes very good. although i was out of liquid smoke i will add next time, it was fine without it. served with hot cornbread yum yum

This was a great recipe. I knew my husband would like it, but the kids really liked it to. I prepared everything the night before and let it sit in the slow cooker all day. It would have been really great with some corn bread. This did make a HUGE amount, so don't make the full amount if you don't want leftovers.

We loved this recipe. I followed it exactly except I substituted Butter beans for the lima beans and great northern beans for the kidney beans. I took this to a small group meeting and everyone loved it! Will make again very soon!

Thanks for sharing this Tom in MN. My mother-in-law used to make this years ago and I had forgotten all about it! It is truly great - one of my favorite bean dishes.

I've made something similar to this and it's really good! It's a standard request at BBQ pot lucks! Thanks for submitting it!
