Barbecue Skillet Beans are perfect for your next backyard barbecue celebrating the 35th Anniversary of KC Masterpiece® barbecue sauce.
Obviously I am a bit of a barbecue sauce fanatic. I fell in love with KC Masterpiece® barbecue sauce and was forever smitten.
KC Masterpiece® was created by Dr. Rich Davis – a physician and barbecue aficionado – in Kansas City in 1978 and won “Best Sauce” at the first ever American Royal Barbecue sauce competition.
KC Masterpiece® Kansas City Classic barbecue sauce is the 35th Anniversary limited edition sauce that pays tribute to the original “Blue Ribbon” blend. It is thick, smokey and slightly sweet, just how we like it!
If we are grilling it means everything is smothered in barbecue sauce. It’s what we do. Hamburgers, hot dogs, pork chops, steaks….it’s all covered in barbecue sauce.
My guys have been working extra hours on the ranch and that leaves me to grill. I am getting better and better and I do prefer the old school charcoal grilling.
Over the weekend I grilled up some burgers and hot dogs. I also made some Barbecue Skillet Beans. I called them skillet beans instead of baked beans because I was informed that I used the wrong kind of beans and they weren’t quite soupy enough to be baked beans. Whatever, they tasted wonderful!
I used my favorite black beans, some thick sliced smokey bacon, onions, a bit of maple syrup and KC Masterpiece® Kansas City Classic barbecue sauce.
The whole family loved these beans and they were perfect along side a barbecued burger. I also served up juicy corn on the cob and it was quite the Sunday supper.
