I used to belong to a Dinner Club. Every month a hostess would pick out a theme and we would all bring dishes with that theme. This is my favorite from those dinners. Prep time includes initial cooking of chicken and sauce.
This is from a neighbor who has sinced moved. When she left, the recipe was past on to keep up the tradition. When I made this with my Kindergarten class, they loved telling their parents they had Trash for snack. It is addictive.
I made this for dinner tonight. We forgot to take the ribs out of the freezer so they weren't ready for the crockpot. I improvised. To a real BBQer unless it's smoked long and slow over wood it ain't BBQ. We like this anyway. Sort of "set it and forget it". You can start early in morning at lower temperature . I have done that too.
Enjoy!!!. These were called Bail-bond Beans in Peg Bracken's book" I Hate to Cook Almanack" When I made them for a pot-luck dinner someone asked my daughter what they were called. "Don't know beans" was her answer and that's what we call them now. I like them better cold. We make more than enough for left-overs.
We have served this at parties for over 30 years. I have no idea where I first got it. Just reading it brings back memories of birthdays, showers, baptisms, and Christmas Open House. Rum can also be added.
