Gene has been making these beans for years now. We call them Big Ass Beans, because its a big ass crock pot full of beans, that I could (and do) eat as a meal.
Originally he got the recipe from a friend, Judy Burley, and we fell in love with it, so it’s become a family favorite. When going to a family get together, he is usually asked to bring these, this week was no exception. My granddaughter celebrated her tenth birthday and she asked for Grandpa’s Big Butt Beans.
