Great flavor. Soaked beans for 7-8 hrs, bring to boil for 2-3 minutes, turn heat off & let it sit for 1 hr. Drain water & rinse beans. Put fresh water in pot & soak overnight. Next morning, drain bean into crock pot, reserving water. Add back reserved water after layering the beans, bacon & onions to barely cover beans. Took advice of reviews by * frying bacon [cut into pieces 1st], * decreased the sugar, adding bell pepper[red, yellow] and jalapeno [seeded, diced], liquid smoke. * Took crock pot cover off the last 1 1/2 hr(after cooking about 7 hrs on low before removing lid) so sauce would thicken * Need to check liquid & stir periodically so that there's enough liquid. * Beans sitting there will absorb a lot of the liquid so do not let it dry out too much. * Yields a lot of beans & flatulence
