Recipe Courtesy of Cindy Schumacher

8 oz. sliced bacon, diced
1 large onion, diced
1 large green pepper, diced
1 large red bell pepper, diced
2/3 cup dark brown sugar, packed
1 cup tomato-based barbeque sauce
1/3 cup maple-flavored pancake syrup
1/3 cup light corn syrup
3 cans pork & beans, drained
2/3 cup beer or apple juice

In a heavy skillet, fry bacon over medium heat until lightly browned.
Add onion and peppers and cook 3 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender.
Stir in sugar, barbeque sauce and syrups. Put in Dutch oven or crock pot.
Add bacon mixture and beer. Cook on low to blend flavors.
(For optimum smoky flavor, put mixture in a 12 X 6 X 3 inch foil pan and grill over hickory chips.)
