One of my husband’s favorite foods is BBQ ribs, but they always make such a mess on our grill and this time of year, we can’t exactly go outside and grill in the snow. 🙂 So when I heard that you could make ribs in the crock pot, I put it to the test!
1 1/2 cups of your favorite bbq sauce (We used Famous Dave's Rich and Sassy BBQ sauce)
Line slow cooker with a b][slow cooker liner [/b] (trust me - you will want it so you don't have to scrub your slow cooker when you are done) and then spray with non-stick cooking spray.
In a small bowl, mix together mustard, salt, garlic powder, seasoned salt, brown sugar, pepper, and cayenne pepper.
Rub both sides of rack of ribs with seasoning mixture. Cut ribs into 4-6 pieces and place in slow cooker. Pour water in the bottom of the slow cooker.
Cook ribs in crock pot on high 4-6 hours. Add BBQ sauce and then cook for an additional 1-2 hours.
Remove ribs from crock pot and serve. If you want to caramelize your BBQ sauce on the ribs, line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil, place ribs on top, and brush with more BBQ sauce. Place pan in oven preheated to 400 degrees and cook for 8-10 minutes.
