This recipe is from all recipes by ohhcandy. Candy says, "This is a favorite at potlucks and barbeques! I've often wondered if I get invited for my company or my Cola Beans! I've tried several different brands of colas, but have found that the brand in the red can works best. I like to pre-cook the bacon about half-way so it doesn't make the beans too greasy, but it's not necessary. This recipe can also be cooked in a conventional oven at 350 degrees F for about 1 hour."

It didn't really make a difference in taste. I even added more coke than what it called for and tried cooking off excess liquid.
