This is an easy, basic, and adaptable recipe! I doubled it to make 20 servings for a 50th birthday bash, and got two great compliments, one from the birthday boy and one from the best cook in the family. I did it in the crock pot, and found that very convenient. However I would make a couple changes: I used 4 cans of pork and beans, in the future I will drain two of them. Some of the bean liquid is needed but there was too much. Also, it is a little on the sweet side so I might decrease the amount of sugar. A few too many onions for our liking as well. The recipe was unclear about whether the bacon should be cooked first, although I assumed it should be and in the end we agreed that was a good idea. Finally, the molasses I had used was apple cider molasses. I'm not sure how much of a difference that made but it would be interesting to try it with "regular" molasses.
