This saucy dish is flavorful and filling, chock-full of ground beef, bacon and four varieties of beans. I've had the recipe for over 10 years and make it often for big appetites at home and potlucks at work and church. —Cathy Swancutt, Junction City, Oregon

Excellent though a little sweet. I used regular bbq sauce.

Make this quite often. Got this recipe from the origional crockpot cookbook that came with crockpot back in the 70's. Was called "one pot meal". Must add the vinegar, this is crucial to the proper taste. You can also add shoepeg corn for a twist.

I agree--best baked beans ever!! Very yummy along with Homemade Italian Sausage, redskin potato salad, and corn on the cob. A great holiday picnic combo!

That`s was very tasty, but I put less onion ( be ready onion by the recipe will be almost raw when you will take out of your oven!) and I used simple barbecue sauce because it will be plenty sweet no need additional sweetness.
