My Dad was from Kansas City, KS. FYI He could REALLY cook. My sister called me at 5:45AM on the 4th of July to ask if I had his ribs recipe. I never got that one, but I got this one for his Baked Beans and and they are the bomb.com.
My friends know it as, "The BADDEST Baked Beans" recipe. Enjoy. They are AMAZING!
