To make the Magic Dust, mix together all the ingredients. You'll need 2 tablespoons for the recipe, but the rest will keep in a tightly covered container, and can be used as a seasoning and a meat rub.
To make the beans, preheat the oven to 350° F.
Mix the mustard, ketchup, onion, bell pepper, brown sugar, sorghum or honey, and Magic Dust together in a large bowl. Be sure to work out all the lumps of brown sugar.
Add the beans stirring gently just enough to evenly distribute the mixture, then pour into 13×9-inch baking dish. Lay the bacon strips, ribs or pork across the top.
Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 45 minutes.
Remove the foil and bake for an additional 15 minutes or until bubbly. Serve warm.
