I know this post is older but glad I found it. Always wanted to make some. My grandfather used to make them when he knew i was coming for a visit. These go great with bb-q chicken, some slaw, and corn bread, and ice tea for Sunday dinner!

Last weekend I made a pot of beans as per John's post above. They turned out awesome!!!! Seriously dark and very tastey. Made some slow cooker ribs to go with them and added asparagus fresh from our garden. If you want a pot of excellant beans follow the recipe in John's link.....Dave

These are about the closet I've found to the real thing, little more work than Dave's, but worth the time......

After this thread started, I have been craving good, home made, New England Baked Beans!  I used to make them 30 years ago, in New England, where I lived.  I remember the first time, I used bacon, a half dozen strips, placed in the bean pot.  I could not eat that bacon.  I then decided to fry up the bacon first, and that was pretty yummy.  Then one day, I bought a little chunk of salt pork.  I followed the recipe almost to the letter, (I used the one from the old "Better Homes" cookbook.  Very similar to yours, that's why my mouth watered when I read your recipe)  That is a must have for New England baked beans, if you ask me.

Yesterday, I finally made some, air conditioner blasting cool air, slow oven blasting warm air.  Bean blasting out that wonderful smell from the bean pot. 

Another must have is one of those old, brown bean pots marker "Hull" or "McCoy" on the underside.  Better than a slow cooker anyday.  I do enjoy our slow cooker for other things such as good ol southern beans and ham, roasts, Corned beef and cabbage, and many other dishes, but not new england baked beans.
