This was great and easy. I made it veggie, used vegetable broth instead of chicken and a bit of liquid smoke and no bacon. Will make it again soon.

This was okay, but not great. It took nearly an hour of work before I could put it into the oven. It came out a little watery, not nice and thick. I will definitely not spend my time on this again. The Baked Triple Bean Pot recipe from CL is much better, and takes about 3 minutes to get it into the oven.

After all the cook times the beans were very tough. It was such a disappointment since I was looking forward to this dish once the BBQ sauce was being made. I think I'll just stick to Bush's Baked Beans in the future. I served the dish with hamburgers and was still able to salvage the sauce for dipping.

We had made a pound of dried pinto beans last week and I needed a way to use them up. I skipped the first step and continued as directed from then on. I thought this had lots of flavor. and I would make it again for a BBQ or potluck.

I made this for a big party years ago and I get asked to make it again and again. Bush's beans are TOO salty and TOO sweet - this is real deep flavor.

I didn't think this recipe was worth the time it took to make. There was really no flavor to it and it took quite some time to make. I agree that I would stick to Bush's BAked Beans. Maybe if it was doctored up some it would taste better, but I won't be making this again.

I think this is a fantastic bean recipe. I have made it for years as printed and just now read the different reviews. Cannot believe people did not enjoy. I am ask for the recipe everytime i make them!
