  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Mix brown sugar, paprika, mustard, and cayenne pepper together in a bowl. Whisk in pepper soda, ketchup, and Worcestershire sauce until brown sugar is dissolved.
  3. Cut 4 slices of bacon into small strips. Cook and stir in a large Dutch oven over medium heat until almost crispy, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl, reserving bacon grease.
  4. Stir onion into the bacon grease in the Dutch oven; cook and stir until soft, 3 to 5 minutes. Add garlic; cook and stir for 1 minute. Pour in bourbon, stirring to scrape up browned bits off the bottom with a wooden spoon. Stir bacon strips back in.
  5. Pour brown sugar mixture and baked beans into the Dutch oven. Simmer until beans are heated through, about 15 minutes. Arrange remaining 4 slices of bacon on top of the beans.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven, covered, until beans are bubbly and sauce is syrupy, about 3 hours.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Substitute apple cider vinegar for the bourbon if you don't want to use alcohol.

Made as directed. They were just a little too sweet. Next time I will lessen the sugar and increase the mustard, paprika and cayenne. I used Makers Mark bourbon.
