This is a very popular recipe (as the name implies) The Boy Scouts. I had it at least a couple if times as a teen and finally saw and episode on PBS about comfort foods that had this recipe. It's easy to make and feeds a bunch. It is way up there on the comfort food list. Enjoy! Note: The Scout leader usually prepares this recipe for The Boy Scouts at camp in a Dutch oven but they found the slow cooker works just as well at home. Even though this dish is mostly beans, the boys love them and always eat as much as is made. This is a true Boy Scout classic - easy and delicious.
