to 1 lb ground beef
pound bacon, cut in small pieces
1 cup chopped onion
2 31-oz cans pork and beans
1 16-oz can kidney beans, drained
1 16-oz can butter beans, drained
1 cup catsup
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon liquid smoke
3 tablespoons white vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
Dash of pepper

Recipe notes: I can't find canned goods in the quantities listed above, so what I do is buy cans with the number of ounces closest to what's required. It doesn't seem to throw the flavors off to keep everything else the same. I use pound ground beef and pound bacon, but if you're feeding a lot, go for more ground beef. Be sure to pack your brown sugar in the measuring cup. Use a large crock pot.
I cut the bacon into small pieces before I fry it with the onions. Seems to go faster this way.
Directions: Brown ground beef, drain off fat and put beef in crock pot. Brown bacon and onions, drain and add to crock pot. Add all other ingredients; stir together well. Cover and cook on low 5-9 hours or high 3 hours.

Personal Notes:
This is a recipe that I've made lots of times and received many compliments. It's particularly good for potlucks where you have access to electricity. It was in a recipe book that came with my crock pot years ago. Frankie
