I made these beans for the first time to take to a potluck, so took some the of the negative reviews into consideration and proceeded cautiously. Some said it turns out too soupy: I used 2 28 oz. cans pork & beans and drained some of the liquid from the cans. Still turned out on the soupy side. Will drain completely next time. Too spicy: Used same amounts of spices as recipe calls for when using only one can of beans. Too vinegary: Used 2 Tbs vinegar instead of 4. Used apple cider vinegar. I used VanKamp Pork & Beans. With the added can of beans, the only other increases I made in the recipe were, to use a LARGE onion (sweet), a LARGE bell pepper, and added an extra 1/4 brown sugar and 1 additional sausage. I sauteed the onion, bell pepper and sausage before mixing everything together, and cooked on high in a crock pot for 3 hours. Everyone loved the beans. As a side dish it served 8 with a little left over.
