I use #10 cans of Bush Beans from Sam's and I doctor them up and people love them. And I'll bet you could make the beans from scratch and get a great product, too. I just don't have that kind of time if I'm cooking for a big group. A small family gathering is another thing, But - taste is everything and I've made some killer beans that got raves and they came from a can. But remember you gotta doctor them or they taste like canned beans.
