I have made this three times now. It has become a favorite "go to" when barbecuing.

Like other reviews, this is a favorite childhood recipe. I always double it, because it is that good. I often prepare it ahead of time, then warm it up in the crockpot at a church function.

This is a favorite of mine since childhood. I love the tangy sweetness of the sauce mingled with the bacon flavor. Mmmmm... so good! Mom always used lima instead of butter beans for added color, and I usually do the same. Now my husband is a big fan of this dish as well. Works great in the crockpot as well.

I made this and sent it with my husband to a potluck. He came home with an empty dish--so I guess it was a hit! I could not find butter beans in the store so I used black beans. I added about 1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke. I will save this recipe and make it again.

We made this at our Girl Scout overnight for a hearty lunch served with cornbread. It was a big hit and very tasty and filling after a morning hike! Easy for the girls (12 and 13) to prep and serve.

I have made this dish for potlucks and family dinners numerous times and am always asked for the recipe. I use a 13 by 9 inch baking dish and add an interesting twist by turning the oven up to 400 degrees during the last 10-15 minutes and topping the beans with canned biscuits (Grands are great!) and sprinkling shredded cheese on top of the biscuits. Bake until the biscuits are fluffy and brown.

Just took these to my niece's wedding reception! A gal searched me out as I was leaving with my crockpot to find out "who made those beans!!" Made my day! Best and easiest recipe ever!!!

Very good, exactly the recipe I was looking for! Doubled it and took it for Christmas dinner, still had plenty of leftovers. I used recipe ready bacon bits and no one could tell!
