    2      cans          Bush’s Baked Beans -- (28 oz.)
    1      lb.           Ground chuck
      1/2                Green bell pepper --  seeded and chopped
      1/2                Sweet red pepper --  seeded and chopped
    2      cups          diced onion
    1      cup           Kraft Hickory Smoked BBQ sauce
    4                    whole cloves
    4      		whole allspice
    8      		whole peppercorns
    3      tsp.          bbq rub seasoning
      1/2  tsp.          cayenne pepper (optional)
      1/2  cup           brown sugar
 
 Drain beans in a colander and set aside. Place allspice, peppercorns,
 and whole cloves in a spice mill or blender.  Process until coarsely
 ground. 
 Brown the ground chuck in a six to eight quart sauce pan or large
 skillet.  Crumble the beef with a spoon or spatula as it is cooking. 
 Drain and return to the sauce pan.
 Sauté the peppers and onion with the browned, crumbled ground chuck
 until the onion is just starting to become translucent.  Stir in the
 drained beans and bbq sauce.  Heat until it begins to bubble, stirring
 occasionally.  Stir in spice mixture and brown sugar.  Reduce heat and
 simmer for fifteen minutes.  Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375 degrees.
 Transfer beans to a suitable, oven proof serving dish.  Bake, uncovered,
 in oven for thirty minutes.  Serve hot from the oven or allow to cool as
 desired.
