     Potluck dinners are always fun. A little while back we had one at work and everyone did a great job of bringing in goodies. One of the graphic designers brought in a slow cooker full of tasty pork and beans. This combination of sauces, bacon and beans had the staff coming back for more.

2-15 oz. cans pork and beans
2-8 oz. cans pork and beans
1 lb. bacon
2 cups Jack Daniels Hickory Barbecue Sauce
1/2 cup Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce
2 cups maple syrup
1/2 cup Best Western or French Dressing
In skillet, fry bacon on low to medium heat until good and crispy. Remove from skillet and place on plate with paper towels to drain excess grease and cool to avoid burning fingers.

Open cans of beans and pour contents into kettle. Place on burner and adjust setting to low to medium heat. Mix in additional sauces and syrup and stir thoroughly.

Crumble bacon into chunks, mix into beans and stir thoroughly. Simmer until beans are slightly bubbling or until desired level of heat/softness of beans. Serves 30-40.
