"I am asked to bring these rich, meaty and satisfying "trucker beans" to almost every summer barbeque! They make a great side dish or are hearty enough to be eaten as a meal."

1 (16 ounce) package dry
15 bean mix for soup
1 bay leaf
1 pound bacon
1 pound ground beef
1 pound kielbasa sausage,
sliced
1 onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper,
chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
2 (10.5 ounce) cans
chicken broth
1 (16 ounce) bottle hickory
flavored barbeque sauce
(such as Open Pit®)
1 1/2 teaspoons
Worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup real maple syrup
2/3 cup bourbon whiskey
3 tablespoons coarse-grain
mustard

1.Rinse the beans, and place in a very large pot. Cover beans with water, add the bay leaf, and bring to a boil. Simmer until all of the water is absorbed, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Remove the bay leaf.
2.Place the chopped bacon in a large, deep skillet; cook over medium-high heat, stirring, until evenly browned, about 5 minutes. Drain the bacon on a paper towel-lined plate. Return the skillet to the heat, and add the ground beef; cook until the beef is cooked through and browned, about 5 minutes. Drain fat.
