"This is the only dish my family and friends ask (beg) me to bring.

different barbecue sauces will make it taste different. I use Cookies Original. Easy to make and a meal in itself."

"Great baked beans. Easy to assemble and do ahead. I was out of bratwurst so we substituted mild italian sausage links. Next time will hold out for the bratwurst."

"It is a meal by itself, or a side for the hearty eater. Can be cooked by the fire, just remember to turn the pot and stir. I add a little more water as it cooks down quickly when placed on the fire. Wonderful flavor."
