1 (1 lb.) tube spicy sausage
4 (15-16 oz.) cans different types of beans (dark red kidney, black beans, navy beans, pinto beans, etc.)
1 (31 oz) can pork and beans
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. barbecue sauce
1/2 c. ketchup
1/2 large onion, chopped
1 (10 oz.) can regular or spicy Ro-tel chopped tomatoes drained
1 tsp. liquid smoke
1 tsp. mustard
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. coarsely ground pepper
6 to 8 strips bacon

Preheat oven to 350. In large skillet, brown sausage, breaking up into pieces as it cooks. When cooked through, remove from skillet; drain fat. In very large bowl, mix sausage with beans, pork and beans, brown sugar, barbecue sauce, ketchup, onion, tomatoes, liquid smoke, mustard, salt and pepper. Transfer mixture to a 13- by 9 inch baking pan. Place bacon on top and bake for 1 hour. If necessary, run under broiler to make bacon crisp before serving.

Personal Notes:
We usually bake in a 13 x 9 dish & have enough for a 8 x8 square pyrex dish as well. This recipe was from the Atlanta Journal Constitution newspaper Food section in a Tail-gating feature. It's a great side for a cookout celebration.
