Slow Cooker BBQ Beans

With the Packer vs. Bears game at 2pm today, I decided to make up my beans in the slow cooker so they'd be done when we got home from church. I did some research on making beans up in the slow cooker and this is what I came up with.
  • 3 cups dry beans (I used 1 cup of each Great Northern, black beans, and red beans)
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 3/4 cup bbq sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
  • 1/4 cup real maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon Chipotle Tabasco Sauce
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup onions, chopped
  • 3/4 cup red pepper, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon McCormick's Grillmates Smokehouse Maple seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 teaspoons chili powder
  1. Soak beans over night or at least 8 hours. Rinse, and then transfer to a large saucepan. Cover beans completely with water and bring to a boil on the stove. Let boil for 30 minutes.
  2. While beans are boiling, combine all remaining ingredients in your 5-6 qt. slow cooker and turn on high.
  3. Drain beans and add them to the slow cooker. Let cook on high for 6 hours.
I came up with this recipe after looking through 3 different recipes - Sweet & Spicy Barbecue BeansSuper Bowl Barbecue Baked Beans, and Slow Cooker Homemade Beans.
