Baked Wilbur Beans
Source: Famous Dave's
8 ounces thick - sliced hickory smoked bacon
1 (8 ounce) strip steak
Famous Dave's Steak Seasoning to taste
1 (8 ounce) twice-smoked sausage link
2 tablespoons bacon drippings
1 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 tablespoon diced jalapeno
2 (28 ounce) cans Bush's Baked Beans
1 (20 ounce) bottle Famous Dave's BBQ Sauce
Fry Bacon in skillet until crisp. Drain reserving 2 tablespoons of the drippings.
Crumble the bacon and set aside. Sprinkle steak with steak seasoning. Grill over hot coals until medium. Cut into 1/2 inch cubes. Grill sausage until nice and charred. Slice the sausage lengthwise into halves, slice halves into quarters, cut quarters into 1/2 inch cubes. In a skillet, saute onion, green pepper and jalapeno in reserved bacon drippings just until onion is tender-crisp. Stir in bacon, steak, sausage, beans and BBQ sauce. Simmer over low heat for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. The flavor is enhanced if stored, covered, in the refrigerator for 8 to 10 hours and reheated before serving. To re-smoke sausage, smoke over hickory chips at 175 degrees for 2 hours. Grill over hot coals for additional flavor.
Yield: 12-15 servings
