Fall Off The Bone BBQ Ribs Recipe

These ribs are so simple to make - throw them in the slow cooker to tenderize all day, then toss them on the grill to caramelize the BBQ sauce and seal in all the flavors. Holy cow . . . these are amazing!

  • Slow Cooker
  • Non-stick Cooking Spray
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Grill
  • Grill Brush


  • 3 pounds pork loin ribs
  • cups pineapple juice divided
  • cups brown sugar
  • 16 ounces BBQ Sauce 1 bottle, (I love Famous Dave's Rich and Sassy sauce)


  • Spray the slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray (or use a slow cooker liner to make clean up a breeze!).
  • Take your slab of ribs (make sure that they are defrosted) and cut into individual slabs (about 2-3 ribs each). Throw the ribs into the slow cooker.
  • Mix 3 1/4 cups pineapple juice and the brown sugar together and pour over the ribs.
  • After they are done in the slow cooker, use tongs to gently pull them out (they will literally fall apart when you touch them).
  • Turn the grill on medium heat. While the grill is warming up, mix together the bottle of BBQ sauce and 1/4 cup of pineapple juice you saved from earlier.
  • Place the ribs gently on the grill and and brush with BBQ sauce.
  • Turn the ribs twice, slathering with more sauce each time (you can't have enough sauce).
  • They will take about 10-15 minutes to glaze over (as soon as that sauce starts to turn sticky, you know they are done).
  • Serve immediately and enjoy.


  • We've also used this marinade for chicken, steak, pork, etc.
