Jerry's Baked Beans

This recipe is from my sister's father-in-law Jerry, and it is sooooo good! I've never personally made it, but we got the recipe from him after he made if for us after Dean's wedding. Fabulous!

1 Gallon can Bush Beans
3 lbs bacon end cuts
1 whole onion thickly sliced
6 cloves garlic
1 Cup molasses
About ¼ cup prepared mustard
Black pepper to taste
Mesquite Chunks

Throw Mesquite chunks into your gas grill and start the fire. In a disposable roasting pan, brown the onions and garlic. Cook the bacon lightly (it will finish cooking while the mixture thickens.) Add the beans, molasses, mustard, and pepper and let simmer until the beans thicken to the desired consistency. By doing this on the grill the beans will have a rich smoky flavor. Scraping the sides and bottom and including the crusty stuff will increase the flavor.

Jerry says he doesn't always make them with that much bacon and that it was an experiment. However, being 'experimented on' I can say that all that bacon makes them taste SO much better!
