2 lbs. 80% lean ground beef
1 lb. hickory smoked bacon
2 – 31 oz. cans pork and beans, with juices
30 oz. dark red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 small bottle pure maple syrup
1 small onion, small dice
6 oz. pineapple juice

Cut bacon into 1 inch pieces. In a large stock pot, cook bacon over medium high heat until well cooked, but not crispy; do not drain fats. Add ground beef and onions to bacon in pot along with Memphis Rub; cook over medium heat until ground beef is browned and onions are soft. Add pork and beans and kidney beans; add ¾ bottle of pure maple syrup, Taste of Cherry Rub, and pineapple juice. Cook over medium heat for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low and cook 20 minutes longer – that’s how you make Real Cowboy Beans! Yum!
