1 lb small white (Navy) beans, soaked overnight
1 1/2 quarts water
1 Tablespoon kosher salt
6 slices bacon, diced small
1 small to medium brown onion, diced fine
1 small to medium red bell pepper, diced 1/4 inch in size
1/2 tsp garlic, minced fine
1/4 cup ketchup
1 Tablespoon mustard
1/3 cup molasses
1/2 cup BBQ sauce
1 Tablespoon liquid smoke
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Drain beans after soaking overnight. Combine beans and water, bring to a boil and simmer until tender, about 2 hours. Do not add salt until beans are tender.
While beans are cooking, brown the bacon in a saute pan. When brown, add the onion, red bell pepper and garlic. Sweat until soft on medium heat.
In a deep braising pan, combine the cooked vegetables with the beans and their cooking liquid. Add all other ingredients and stir well.
Bake uncovered in oven for about 2 hours or until thickened to desired consistency.
* You can add a dash of apple cider, cider vinegar, sugar, honey, brown sugar and a jalapeno or pasilla pepper if you like.
