|4||(15- to 16-ounce) cans different types of beans (dark red kidney, black beans, navy beans, pinto beans, etc.)|
|1||(31-ounce) can pork and beans|
|½||cup brown sugar|

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large skillet, brown the sausage, breaking it up into pieces as it cooks. When cooked through, remove from skillet and drain fat.
In a 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 or other large baking pan. Place bacon strips on top and bake for 1 hour. If necessary, run under broiler to make bacon crisp before serving.
