  1. Brown 1 lb (or 2) sausage in a skillet. Add onion & garlic, salt & bbq sauce & brown sugar.
  2. Let that marinade on stove for a few minutes.
  3. Add beans to crockpot. Use canned beans. Add liquid & all. (may pour off some liquid, if you like)
  4. I usually add about 3-4 cans of beans, will depend on how much you want to make, how man diff. varieties of beans you want, and how big your crockpot is!
  5. I like to use various colors of beans, for color & look.
  6. Add meat sauce to crockpot. Stir. Cook. Cook 3-4 hours, or longer, on low.
This is a recipe I've had for a couple of years now. This is another one from one of the PBS cooking shows, one where they were asking for Money. When this recipe aired, a Boy Scout troop leader made the recipe, he said he normally makes this camping with the boys, but he's adapted it for the crockpot.
