It may be September, but barbecue season isn’t over yet! While the weather’s still warm, and friends are still throwing meat and vegetables on the grill, it’s time to give this hearty, crowd-pleasing side dish a try. You’d never think that beans could be a showstopper of a dish, but these have the perfect balance of sweet and tangy, smoky and spicy. Vanns Mesquite Barbecue Rub adds a little twist of wood-fired flavor to the dish. The final product may look like more beans than a crowd could ever hope to eat, but I’m willing to bet that they’ll all be gone by the end of the day.
A note: if you'd like to make these beans for some vegetarian friends, omit the bacon and use 2 Tbs. vegetable oil to brown the onions and other aromatics. Adding a teaspoon of Vanns Smoked Spanish Paprika in Step 4 will add back some of that smokiness that you lose with the bacon!
