As many of you know, almost every Wednesday night, we have been doing backyard BBQ and Grilling classes at All Grills and More in Oviedo, FL. In the classes Clara and I focus on doing recipes that can be easily reproduced for friends and family in their own backyard.

This has been a big hit, and I want to thank all who have participated, we continue to make new friends through this, and personally I love to hear how they made of the recipes from the class at a party they were giving and how much of a hit it was. It definately makes it all worthwhile.

A recipe that has been around for awhile in a few different variations, and has been a big hit in my rib class, is this Apple Baked Beans recipe. Not only does it have a very unique flavor, it is very much a conversation piece while we are making them. And now, I am going to share my variation of this recipe with you.

We start with pre-made baked beans, and my favorite for this is Busch’s Original Baked Beans. Here is the recipe;

Apple Baked Beans

4 (16 oz) cans Bush’s Original Baked Beans
4 slices (cooked) bacon, diced
3/4 cup HomeBBQ.com Sweet & Spicy BBQ Sauce (or your favorite bbq sauce)
1 lb crumbled cooked Jimmy Dean Maple pork sausage
1 (21oz) can Comstock Apple Pie Filling (break up large pieces of apples)
1 Large sweet onion (Vidalia preferred), finely diced
1 green pepper, finely diced
3/4 cup brown sugar (dark preferrably)
2 1/2 Tblsp. Lee & Perrins Worcestershire sauce
2 1/2 Tblsp. Yellow or Brown Mustard
1 tblsp. Hot Sauce (I prefer Texas Petes or Loiusiana Hot Sauce)
2 tblsp. HomeBBQ.com Rib Rub (or your favorite BBQ Rub)
1 tsp Cayenne Pepper

The easy way to do this, is to combine all ingredients and cook on the grill or smoker 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
The second method would be to saute the onions and green peppers, then add them and cook until hot.

Enjoy!
