8 ounces thick-slice hickory-smoked bacon
1 (8 ounce) strip steak
Famous Dave's steak seasoning
1 (8 ounce) twice-smoked sausage link
2 tablespoons bacon drippings 1 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 tablespoon diced jalapeno
2 (28 ounce) cans Bush's Baked Beans
1 (20 ounce) bottle Famous Dave's BBQ sauce

Fry bacon in a skillet unil crisp. Drain, reserving 2 tablespoons of the drippings. Crumble the bacon. Sprinkle with steak seasoning. Grill over hot coals until medium. Cut into 1/2 inch cubes. Grill sausage until nice and charred. Slice the sausage lengthwise into halves; slice into quarters. Cut the quarters into 1/2 inch cubes. Saute onion, green pepper, and jalapeno in reserve bacon drippings in a skillet just until onion is tender-crisp. Stir in bacon, steak, sausage, beans, and sauce. Simmer over low heat for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. The flavor is enhanced if stored, covered, and refrigerated for 8 to 10 hours and reheat just before serving. To re-smoke sausage, smoke over hickory chips at 175 degrees for 2 hours. Grill over hot coals for additional flavor. This makes 12 to 15 servings.
