BBQ crockpot beans
These can be made in a crockpot slowly, or if time is a factor, on the stove, in about 1-1/2 hrs. Use a heavy dutch oven type pan.
Note: do not eliminate the instant coffee or liquid smoke. They are essential to the rich taste of these beans.

How to Make BBQ crockpot beans
- In large frying pan, brown ground beef and onion, drain.
In large crock-pot assemble remaining ingredients, except optional bacon. Add drained meat/onion mixture and leave on low 7-8 hours. Mixture will thicken as it cools. The longer you cook, the thicker the consistency. If cooking on stove-top, cover after bringing it to a bubbling simmer, set flame to low and cook about 1-1/2 hours.
- I keep this on low in a crock pot, crumbling the bacon on top just before serving.
