    Fabulous recipe. I had two baby back ribs that totaled to 6 pounds. I broke up each in thirds so I could fit in the slow cooker. Used all the spice rub- had a little left over and just threw it in the crockpot with the bbq sauce. I used Dinosaur BBQ Sensuous Slathering Sauce . 😋 It is the best bbq sauce. Cooked the rinds on low for 6 hours, and finished in the oven , under the broiler , as directed. The reduced sauce was amazing- totally delicious!

    I enjoy this recipe more than my husband's smoked ribs! I've made this at least 4 times. Very easy and delicious with zero fuss. This time I put the rub on overnight and they were even better.

    Some of thr best ribs I've had. I used half smoked paprika instead of only sweet and upped the brown sugar; and put the dry rub on the ribs to sit overnight before throwing them in the crockpot the next day. Reducing the sauce to braise and broiling them is key so don't skip those steps!
