A BBQ is not complete unless you have a side of beans. That's my story, and I'm stickin' to it. This recipe makes a small batch for 4. It can be easily doubled or tripled for a larger yield. These beans have a bit of a bite from the Tabasco Sauce, and are not particularly sweet. The addition of Whiskey just seems right for anything "Cowboy". This is an easy recipe. Once in the oven, they don't require much attention, so you are free to attend to your main dish. I have given the option to substitute olive oil for the bacon fat, for Vegan and Vegetarian Diets.
