This is an excellent recipe and so easy to make. As already mentioned in other reviews, it is a good idea to pour off the grease after about 6 hours and then add the sauce. I used Sweet Baby Ray's brand for the honey BBQ sauce. The finished sauce IS sweet, but not overwhelming. After 8 1/2 hours (total) in the slow cooker, the meat fell from the bone, but were still juicy.

This is the best slow cooker barbeque ribs recipe I've tried. So glad I found it, thanks.

My family really enjoyed these ribs. One of my sons said that these were his favorite ribs. I prefer my ribs on the grill. The sauce turned out really greasy. I will try these again and take Sprowls advice to cook the ribs without sauce to begin with, pour off the grease 3/4 though the cook time, and then add the sauce.

We have enjoyed these lip smacking ribs many times, and they are so easy to put together. They also smell so good while cooking. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

OMG... LOVE this! I did not add the mustard but otherwise stuck to the recipe. The meat fell off the bone in my crock pot. SOOOOOO good.

These were a hit! Cooked them for about 9 hours - that may have been a little too long, they were a tad dry. BUT - we ate them all and decided this was a keeper for sure!

Loved this!! I made as written and it was great. Even my picky 7 year old ate it. Served with baked potato and green beans. Will be making this again.

This is easy and good. Followed directions, a served with mashed potatoes with the sauce as gravy. Cooked on low for 8 hours. Nice to come home to a hot meal.

I accidentally used boneless beef ribs and the sauce was very good, but I think I overcooked them at 8 hours...my slow cooker seems to cook things fast, though.

This is a wonderfully tasty and easy recipe. The sauce is fantastic. Its not like they were done on the grill but cooked slow and low. The taste of the sauce permeates the meat and leaves it moist and juicy. The sweetness with the hint of mustard really makes it mouthwatering. I changed nothing except for using a crock pot liner for easy clean up.Roxanne in DE
