Once in awhile I turn Doug loose in the kitchen to create a new recipe. I have to admit, some of the time his ideas are a little quirky, but this time…oh man, this time, my friends…he struck gold!

These delicious Smokehouse Grilled Barbecue Beans have a pretty common ingredient list, except for the KC Masterpiece® Kansas City Classic barbecue sauce. This brand new limited-edition Barbecue Sauce was made to celebrate the brands 35th anniversary. And let me tell you, I sure do hope it stays around for a long time, we loved it!

Along with the barbecue sauce, he used KC Masterpiece® Baked Beans – Applewood Smoked Bacon variety, Green Pepper, Onion, Ground Mustard, Bacon, Brown Sugar and Vinegar. The vinegar cuts the sweetness of the brown sugar and pulls together all the flavors.

Adding the Barbecue Sauce gave the beans a richness that goes perfect with any grilling recipe – hamburgers, chicken, brats or even hot dogs.

To cook the beans on the grill, we used a square foil pan. It worked out perfectly with less mess to clean up and would be perfect for camping or taking to potlucks.
