• 1 55-ounce can Bush Beans
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup Thick and Sticky Barbecue Sauce (p. 00)
  • 1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Big Time Barbecue Rub (p. 00)
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce of choice
  • 1 cup chopped cooked pork butt or beef brisket (optional)


Preheat the oven to 350°. Pour a little of the liquid off the top of the can and discard. Pour the beans and the remaining liquid into a foil pan or a casserole dish. Add all the remaining ingredients and mix well. Put the beans in the oven for about 1 hour or in the cooker for about 2 hours. Just be sure they are warmed through.
