Skillet Beans

Lord Honey, ever'one knows that baked beans are a staple for cookout season. Well let me tell y'all, I've got the perfect bean recipe that'll have y'all ready for your next cookout, and the best part is--you don't have to turn that hot oven on. My "Crowd-Pleasin' Skillet Beans" are cooked on the stove-top or you can stay outta the kitchen altogether and cook 'em on the grill--just remember to keep 'em in the skillet--or y'all will have a mess on your hands.
