"Great recipe! I served the served the sauce in a little dish with each serving, so people could choose how they wanted it - either used as a dip or poured over their plate. My husband remarked on how good it was for days afterwards."

"Currently making this for dinner and I just snuck a piece and it was delicious! The meat was so tender and just melted in my mouth. I only cooked for 4.5 hours on low then turned to warm and everything was cooked just fine. Going to whip up some mashed potatoes to go with it! GREAT recipe, I will absolutely make this again!"

"These ribs were easy and delicious! I had forgotten to turn my crock pot on when I put them in and ended up cooking them on high for 4 hours instead and they turned out perfectly! I will definitely make these again!"

"Great recipe, as country ribs can be too dry if not careful. I used watermelon bar-b-que sauce. It adds a whole new concept to the flavor. Many recipes on the internet. I like the ones that have dark corn syrup as an ingredient. (Hard Rock Café for example)"

"This is really a great slow-cooker Bar-B-Que recipe. I would test tenderness at the 6 hr mark. You don't want them tough. If you want a real explosion, try watermelon Bar-B-Que sauce. Many on the internet. I like the ones that have dark corn syrup as one of the ingredients (Hard Rock Café for example) You may just find a sauce that you must have on hand. I sure did!"

"Unbelievably good!!! Made these for dinner tonight. My husband and my four kids didn't leave any for me!!!! My 4-year old who usually doesn't like meat asked if I could make them again tomorrow! My 10-year old and my 6-year old asked if I could make them every Sunday. My 8-year old didn't say a word; he was too busy licking his plate... My husband checked the slow cooker twice, in case some ribs were hiding in there...

Thanks for that wonderful recipe!!"
