Start by adding your beans to a container and filling with water until the beans are covered with an inch of water. Soak the beans for 12 hours or overnight.
Rinse the beans and place into a large pot. Fill with water until completely immersed and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for one hour or until beans are tender. Drain the beans and rinse. Return the beans the pot.
In a medium saucepan add the bacon and cook until crispy. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon. Add in the onion and green pepper and sauté until tender.
Add the bacon and the onion and green pepper to the large pot. Add in the ketchup, brown sugar, molasses, Worcestershire sauce, and water. Mix and add more water if needed.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Add the beans to a 9x13 inch dish and bake covered for 2 hours. Remove the foil the last 30 minutes.
