Frankly, chilled BBQ beans didn't really sound so great, but the good reviews encouraged me to try it. I didn't wait for them to be chilled, but had a taste while they were still a bit warm. Wonderful! I used a red onion in mine, but otherwise followed the recipe as written. Do try this dish!

This was a big hit with the guys at our latest barbecue. The gals liked it too, and even the kids ate lots of it.
