Ryan's Bean Casserole

My brother Ryan is an amazing cook.  Today, I am sharing with you one of his signature dishes! It may not look beautiful, but it is delicious and I love the bean mixture.  He adds, "to make sure you have a bottle of  'Beano' on hand!!" (Did I mention his great sense of humor!) On with the recipe....
Ryan's Bean Casserole
All beans are the 15 oz. cans
1 can Pork & Beans
1 can kidney beans
1 can red beans
1 can black beans
1 can great northern beans
1 pound hamburger
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 Tablespoons mustard
1 small onion, chopped (or about 1/2 cup)
1 Polska Kielbasa or beef smoked sausage
1 Tablespoon vinegar
1 package bacon
Brown and drain hamburger.  Cook bacon until crisp and break into pieces. Cut sausage into small pieces.  Drain and rinse beans except the pork and beans.  Add all ingredients into a bowl and mix together.
Pour into a 13 x 9 casserole dish and bake at 300 degrees for 1 1/2 hours. 
My lazy version: Place it all in a crock pot.  Mix together and cook on low for 4-6 hours.
The beauty of this recipe is that you can use the kind of beans you like.
