“I am asked to bring these 'trucker beans' to almost every summer bbq! Rich, meaty and satisfying. These beans make a great side dish, are perfect to bring to a pot luck picnic, or hearty enough to be eaten as a meal.” - by ericaepp
Original recipe yields 14 servings
- Rinse the beans, and place in a very large pot. Cover beans with water, add the bay leaf, and bring to a boil. Simmer until all of the water is absorbed, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Remove the bay leaf.
- Place the chopped bacon in a large, deep skillet; cook over medium-high heat, stirring, until evenly browned, about 5 minutes. Drain the bacon on a paper towel-lined plate. Return the skillet to the heat, and add the ground beef; cook until the beef is cooked through and browned, about 5 minutes. Drain fat.
- Combine the beans, bacon, ground beef, sliced kielbasa, onion, green pepper, red pepper, chicken broth, barbeque sauce, Worcestershire sauce, honey, maple syrup, bourbon, and mustard in the crock of a slow cooker, and stir well to combine. Turn the slow cooker to Low heat, and cook until the beans are tender, 8 to 10 hours.

"I was disappointed with these beans. For one, it took a lot of ingredients and time, and two, I was looking for a really good bbq bean recipe. I made this yesterday for a super bowl party, and the w..." See morehole thing just didn't jive right with me. It was kind of like a chili, but with a bbq taste. I didn't care for the bacon and hamburger in there and I I love these ingredients. All I can say is, people got a bowl, took a bite or two and set it aside, including myself. I followed the recipe exactly too. It sounded good at first, but all together, it didn't taste right for me. Sorry."
