Baked Beans Recipe

This baked beans recipe is for my masterpiece Barbequed Skillet Beans. If I do say so myself they're excellent when smoked with mesquite wood chips, and served with brisket or smoked chicken wings.

They're real quick and easy to do because the base is a can of beans.

I've designed the recipe to be done in a grill with a lid so if you're grill doesn't have a lid, you'll have to retire to the oven.


  • 2 (16 oz.) cans of Ranch Style beans (I like one to be Jalapeno), drained
  • 2 tsp. Liquid Smoke (Mesquite)
  • ¾ cup, quality bottled BBQ sauce
  • 1 oz. golden raisins
  • ½ cup, brown sugar
  • 1 tart apple (Granny Smith) peeled, cored, and chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 strips uncooked bacon, cut in half (or substitute 2T. butter)


With the lid down, preheat your grill or (if you must!) oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Mix all ingredients except bacon in cast-iron skillet. Top with uncooked bacon and then bake uncovered for 1 hour.

Paul's comment:-

Nice recipe! I was interested to see that you didn't pre-cook the onion or the apple. I followed your recipe to the letter and it was mighty fine........congratulations!
