Daughter and I had to head back to Raleigh before anybody even had a chance to try these beans. Just wondered what people thought of them. We love them, but they're a bit different. Just wondered if anyone got around to trying them, and what you thought? Don't want to be bringing them again if a more traditional baked bean side would be preferred.

They were good. I enjoyed the difference.

I had planned to make this one. Work scheduled an Asia trip during that weekend. Got delayed at the last minute and by then I had completely forgotten that this was going on. Maybe next year!

It was a great event. A lot of work but well worth it. I'd like to thank Tulsa Jeff for his generous and delicious donation as well as Lisa from Vacuum Sealers Unlimited for supporting us once again.

We ate a lot earlier this year cause there was so much great food. The brisket didn't get eaten cause everyone was full. Took some home and have to say the brisket was awesome. A family member said it was the best brisket the ever had. I'm still eating Warren's crab soup. I was fortunate enough to get most of it. Warren... great stuff again. Big turtle. Thanks for bringing the smoker. I see why you cater ..... you make great bbq. Beef ribs were great. Hope u make it next year. Always nice for someone to bring something to the table that's new....
