3beans w jowl bacon


3 15 oz. cans of beans, drained, I used pinto, red and cannellini

1 can Rotel tomatoes

3 to 4 tablespoons BBQ sauce

3 tablespoons molasses, I used Grandma’s

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 tablespoon yellow mustard

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

1 teaspoon hot sauce, I used Cholula

1 heaping teaspoon Blues Hog rub

Salt and pepper to taste

½ sweet onion chopped

½ bell pepper, diced

Jowl bacon diced


I chose to do mine in a Crockpot and was on low for about six hours.


I had pre-cooked the bacon some on my smoker then finished browning in a skillet, added the onions and peppers and cooked about 5 minutes. I deglazed it with some beer and added to the Crockpot.


The last hour I set it to high and cracked the lid to thicken some.


Note: All the tablespoons were heaping.
