    Love this recipe. Have made it for several BBQ's and it's the perfect compliment to burgers and dogs. I've received tons of compliments and requests to make it.

    It was horrible.It should be called candy butter beans! Too sweet tasted nothing like Bbq or beans for that matter! Not edible :( (double checked, no mistake made in measurements or anything like that.)
