"I am asked to bring these 'trucker beans' to almost every summer bbq! Rich, meaty and satisfying. These beans make a great side dish, are perfect to bring to a pot luck picnic, or hearty enough to be eaten as a meal." — ericaepp

Yummm...And, so easy to make! I've done them all, from the Williamsburg bean pot receipe in the oven for 8 hours to "doctoring" canned beans (awful!). This is one to try1
I was disappointed with these beans. For one, it took a lot of ingredients and time, and two, I was looking for a really good bbq bean recipe. I made this yesterday for a super bowl party, and the whole thing just didn't jive right with me. It was kind of like a chili, but with a bbq taste. I didn't care for the bacon and hamburger in there and I I love these ingredients. All I can say is, people got a bowl, took a bite or two and set it aside, including myself. I followed the recipe exactly too. It sounded good at first, but all together, it didn't taste right for me. Sorry.
Took this to our cul-de-sac cook-out everyone (especially the men) loved them and came home with an empty crock pot. Going to make them again for family reunion next week in Texas.
These were good, and I would definitely consider them a main dish instead of side due to the three types of meat in it. I would think about making them again but would add some garlic and subtract the honey next time. I didn't feel good about the sugar content between the barbecue sauce, honey, and maple syrup.
I made this, and did not care for it. The alcohol smell was very powerful, and just seemed to intesify the longer is cooked. I won't be making this ever again, sorry.
