Cook the bacon, in a large skillet, until crisp. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate. Discard bacon grease (I freeze mine to use in other recipes, like THIS one.)
Using the same skillet, cook ground beef and onion, over medium heat until beef is done and there is no longer any pink. Drain off excess fat. Combine the cooked beef and bacon with beans, brown sugar, ketchup, ketchup, water, apple cider vinegar, dry mustard, salt and liquid smoke. Spoon into the prepared baking dish.
