Recipe Finds : North Carolina Baked beans in Throwdown battle

I journey to Black Mountain, North Carolina after journeying to Dakar, Senegal, Africa, and Asheville (where I was and tennis pro in the famous Grove Park Inn). I don't remember have North Carolina BBQ while in the state for three years. In the baby baked ribs Throwdown, Bobby was bested by a pit master who also had some killer baked beans. Here is the recipe. I have not made baked beans from scratch by myself but this one is one I will have to try.
