I smoked ribs and pinapple with brown sugar and cinnamon for the Bama game and needed something else to go with it because neighbors were coming over. I could have eaten ribs and watched ball, but hey, the wife called it. So the baked beans went like this, and I would make one adjustment next time. I started in a big frying pan. -3 tbsp butter -5 pieces bacon chopped to spoon size Fry until almost done -2 links Boudain sausage, split the case and remove as you add them. -1 leek chopped to thin medallions -1 bell pepper chopped add veggies and cook down. -1 larger can bushs' baked beans. Or 2 small ones. -maple syrup to taste, not too much the beans have a lot of brown sugar already. -Kraft Original BBQ sauce, 1/3 cup. Stir and simmer low, the boudain likes to stick so stir often and add 1/2 cup water if necessary. The boudin went in to early on mine. It should probably go in after the beans. It has rice, so it tends to absorb a bit of liquids so you will add some. They were raving and going for thirds. lol I guess you could bake them also, but the TV was calling.
