Now Sir...I made this here recipe fer my grandson's gradjiashun party last weekend...and it's GREAT! Hell...T'weren't nuthin left but a whole lot a bean farts, an empty pan and a strange aroma in the evenin air......

I made a couple a variations on the original recipe and it still came out absotively tis...

This recipe serves approximately 25 people.

Miss Fanny and Miss Vera's Camp Beans

Ingredients (adjust according to amount of meat):

· 2-5# cans Van deCamps pork & beans.
· 5-10 pounds boneless country style pork ribs (enough to fill up a 9X13 baking pan)
· 3 small cans tomato sauce (or substitute catsup or BBQ sauce)
· 1/2 cup vinegar or to taste
· 1 and 1/2 cups brown sugar
· 2 clove garlic freshly pressed
· 2 finely chopped onion
· Black pepper to taste
· Pinch red pepper

* I also added 2 cups of Maple Syrup to the Pork & Beans later in the recipe.

Trim the fat off the meat. Combine the tomato sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, garlic, onion, black & red pepper. Mix the meat in the sauce until it is well coated. Let it marinate in this sauce over night. Place the meat into a baking pan and bake in oven at 300° for approximately 3 hours or until the meat flakes apart. When done take meat out of pan and let cool. Pull (do not cut ) the meat apart into small chunks.

Pour one can a the Pork & Beans inta a very large aluminum bakin pan (or use 2 pans if'n ya needs to), pour 1 cup of the Maple Syrup into the Pork & Beans and mix in. Now Sir...put the pulled pork meat and any left over marinade onto this layer of beans. Now...pour the other can a Pork & Beans, and the other cup of Maple Syrup over this, mix in, and put it back inta the oven and bake fer 1 hour at 350 degrees.

Top with chopped onion and chopped crispy bacon. Serve with hot rolls or biscuits.
