No matter what type of meat you decide to barbecue, baked beans go along great with it. Southern Style Smoked Sausage (or any type of sausage) is no exception. This recipe uses a Crock pot to cook both the beans and the sausage together. There flavors blend and create a tasty Barbecue meal.

Step 1: Ingredients
You will need:
2 cans (15.5 oz each) great northern beans, drained, rinsed
2 cans (15 oz each) black beans, drained, rinsed
1 large onion, chopped (1 cup)
1 cup barbecue sauce
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
3 teaspoon ground mustard
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoon chili powder
1 package (1 to 1 1/4 lb) fully cooked Southern Style Sausage
You can use any type of sausage you want to, just make sure it is fully cooked.
Step 2: The Vegetables
Start by opening the cans of beans, draining them, and rinsing them. Put them in the Crock Pot. Next attack an onion with a knife and toss it it the pot once it is nicely diced. Make sure to peal the onion before you chop it. I made the mistake of not doing so the first time.
Step 3: Sauces, Seasonings, and Sugar
Step 4: Sausage
Step 5: Finishing Touches
While baked beans are a great side to BBQ, since this dish turns the side into part of the meal, then you may want to make another side. Corn bread goes great with this.
