Perfect and oh wonderfully tasty. I enjoy the "Neely's" and find their recipes very "down-home" and full of goodness! This was no exception ~ truly down home and really, really nice with the red pepper, (which I have never used in baked beans). I used some chopped pork-shoulder and this was as if we were at our own BBQ with a big bowl of baked beans in front of us! Followed this to absolute except used a "Smoked" paprika instead of a sweet or hot one. No time to put together, but the taste is so exceptional! Will make again! Made for *PAC* Spring 2010
