After reading the reviews, I altered the recipe a bit and they turned out just fine. I actually did the "quick soak" method on my beans...boiled them for a few minutes, and then left them sitting in the covered pot for an hour before draining them and putting them in the crock pot with the bacon, onion and seasonings. I coked them on "high" for 4 hours, until they were moderately tender, then added the ketchup and cooked on low for another six hours. I also cut the brown sugar in half, since others mentioned it was too sweet. Next time I wouldn't though...because I kind of like mine a little sweet. Overall, good recipe, but it did seem like something was missing..and I just couldn't place it.
