I read the other comments and decided to use 1/3 of the sugar and then added it slowly tasting it after it had been well stirred. I ended up using 1/3 cup of brown sugar and 1/2 cup of white sugar, which is A LOT less than called for in the original recipe. My crockpot seems to cook fast so I only cooked it 3 hours to begin with and then about 2 hours after I added the sugars. Delicious!
