  • Cover with either the lid of the dutch oven or foil over the baking dish.
  • Bake the beans for 2 -3 hours. If you like your beans a little more on the saucy side, cook for 2 hours. If you want your beans and sauce on the thicker side, let it go for 3 hours. If your beans are taking longer to cook, keep cooking them. Check on them every 15 minutes until they reach the desired tenderness.
  • Allow the beans to cool slightly, and then serve alongside your favorite BBQ foods!

Using a Slow Cooker

  • Combine the soaked (or canned) beans with the remaining ingredients into a slow cooker. Cook the baked beans on low for about 6 hours or on high for about 2-3 hours.
