"I made this the other day for a Brunch. I did not have the sausage or steak seasoning and did not add the brown sugar. Got RAVE reviews! This is easy and a keeper!"

"I was pretty happy with the way these beans turned out. I probably added twice the amount of a smoky steak seasoning that I had on hand, and with the liquid smoke, it gave it a good flavor."

"Hubby wasn't really impressed. Something missing he said. I forgot the mustard & steak seasoning. Omitted the sugar & diced tom with chilies, but used Trader Joe's Smoky BBQ sauce; it's very spicy. Think our fellowship would like it immensely."
