Tasty, but were terribly hard to grill. Literally fell off the bone. I think I prefer to slow roast in the oven and broil.

omg, never use a slow cooker for ribs, geezus. All you'll get is soup. Instead, salt and pepper both sides, double wrap them in aluminum foil and bake 3.5 hrs at 275 degrees. If you want barbecue sauce on them, then slather them (after cooking) with any type of sauce and broil for 2 minutes. Then turn them over and slather more sauce and broil again for 2 min. Again, NEVER us a gd slow cooker for ribs, geezus.

My husband usually does the ribs so I was pleasantly surprised how easy it is to make these. The flavor was wonderful too.

Yes, I have used this recipe before and it is great. Sometimes I change and put it on the grill first to brown and get the BBQ flavor, then put it in the slow cooker.

So easy and the end result is meat so tender it falls off of the bone.
