Top Review by Bayhill

Delicious! I haven't had Hard Rock Cafe's BBQ beans so I have nothing to compare these with, but we really thought these beans were quite yummy. These beans go together quickly using ingredients that I alway have on hand, and would make a wonderful side dish for some barbeque brisket or tri-tip. We really liked the crumbled bacon on top, too. Thank you for sharing this wonderful, easy recipe.
