BBQ Baked Beans

This recipe is enough for 2-4 people, but I usually double or triple for potlucks 


1/2 lb bacon (cut to pieces) 
1 medium onion, diced - or use less fresh onion and substitute onion powder later depending on your families taste 
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup ketchup 
1/4 cup BBQ sauce (sweet baby rays) 
1-2 Tbsp prepared dijon mustard
1/2 tsp paprika or cayenne pepper (depending on taste)
1/2 tsp chili powder
1-2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce, depending on taste
1 tsp garlic powder 
1 (16 oz) pork and beans (I use Van Camps) - all the juices
1 (16 oz) kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 (16 oz) great northern beans, drained and rinsed

In a skillet cook bacon and onions until onions are tender. Mix sugars, ketchup, bbq sauce, mustard, pepper, chili powder, worcestershire sauce, garlic powder in a separate bowl. Combine beans, sauce mixture, and meat/onion mixture in a slow cooker. Cook on high for 2 two hours or low for a few hours until all ingredients are simmered together.
