Another winner from Bush's Beans, this recipe for Country Style Barbecued Onions is an excellent dutch oven dish and something everyone will love at your next cook out. The recipe calls for 8 medium onions but 7 large onion halves just fit in my 12 inch oven. With 12 coals in a ring around the bottom and around 28-30 on the lid, they were ready in 35 minutes. I would suggest cutting off the top third of your onions, that way they will be deeper, will hold more filling and less apt to fall apart as they are baking. Leave the root end on the bottom, you may have to nestle them in closely to keep them upright. A very tasty and fancy way to dress up baked beans, you could use your favorite flavor, brand or recipe to fill the sweet and delectable onions.
