Every time we have a big family BBQ or gathering, my mother-in-law makes these delicious barbecue beans. They are always a hit! I have had BBQ beans many times before and these are hands-down my favorite. They are hearty, full of great flavor, and not to mention SUPER easy to prepare. I will never make BBQ beans any other way!
