Have this in the crock pot on high. Plan to turn down after an hour and leave on low all day till grandbabies are ready to eat ;>) I used 1 lb of dry beans which I think is the key to success with this recipe but then I am old and used to cooking from scratch - 2/7/09
I think the key to this recipe is that you need to start with dried beans. I used Anasazi dried beans. I cooked them for 45 minutes first & then added the other ingredients & cooked for another 45 minutes. I added ch. celery, 3 Tbsp. BBQ sauce, 1/2 cup of pulled pork & doubled the seasonings. - 8/10/09
I had to change this recipe to love it. I used half the amount of water, which also decreased cooking time. I used canned beans (two) and drained the liquid. Note: Using canned beans hikes up the sodium A LOT! I added about 1-2 tbsps of ketchup and it was perfect! I could eat this everyday. - 7/12/09
