Default martys beans

i got this from my brother in laws step dad marty who was a really good guy.

he always brought a pot of beans to family get togethers, and always left with an empty pot. he was in his upper 80s when i decided i better get his recipe while he is still alive.
so here it is.

3-4lbs cooked beans. he liked randalls baked beans
use a large mixing spoon to measure out
1 sp brown sugar
1 & 1/2 sp molasses
1 & 1/2 sp syrup we use pure maple syrup
1 sp barbecue sauce
1 & 1/2 sp bourbon
1/2 onion
6 pieces cooked bacon
apple cider
salt and pepper to taste.

drain the beans well and put in pot. cast iron pot is traditional, but not necessary
mix the next 5 ingredients together in a bowl, then pour over the beans.
add the onion, and bacon
add apple cider to cover the beans
cook 2 to 3 hours low to medium heat, not too hot

stir now and then to keep the beans from sticking
add cider if need be to keep beans covered

you can vary the recipe to suit your taste. don't like booze, leave it out

thank you marty
