Apple Pie Baked Beans

Course Side Dish
Cuisine BBQ


  • 16 ounce no sugar added apple pie filling
  • 55 ounce can Bush's original baked beans or Showboat
  • ½ cup favorite BBQ sauce
  • 2 tablespoons favorite BBQ rub/seasoning plus extra for topping


  1. Heat your oven, grill or smoker to about 325°.

  2. Empty the pie filling in an aluminum pan OR 13x9 baking dish, plus 2 tablespoons of the BBQ seasoning and BBQ sauce.

    Very gently, using an immersion blender, blend up the apples but not entirely. You don't want apple puree, you just want to loosen it a little bit. If you don't have an immersion blender, place into a food processor or blender and pulse for a few seconds.

  3. Add the canned baked beans and any other jazzy additions, if you're using them, as listed in the notes. Stir to combine.

  4. Place in your preheated oven, grill or smoker and cook for 1.5 hours.
