Cold Barbequed Bean Salad -From dry or canned pinto beans

I was curious to try this Cold Barbequed Bean Salad guessing it would be perfect for picnics and grill-outs... And it is:@) I know it sounds odd, a cold side salad that has a BBQ sauce type flavor profile? But I promise it will appeal to most in the crowd! The recipe makes a ton, it's easily cut in half, and even half will go a ~long~ way. My only suggestion is, don't skimp on the green and red bell peppers, they really add a nice bite. Don't hesitate to give this a try folks, especially if you're looking for something different to bring to the 4th of July BBQ!
 I did start with dry pintos, 
no soak, and used my Instant Pot for 28 minutes, natural release.
Use extra 1 minute increments if needed.
Don't see why we can't sub canned beans, 15 oz = approximately 1 1/2 C of rinsed beans.
