This was a fantastic recipe, if I could I would add a sixth star, definitely a keeper. I have done this recipe twice now and the only thing I can recommend is that you cut the rack of ribs into groups of 4 to 5 ribs then stack them with meat end up to form a tee pee in the center of the pot, this way they will support each other and not fall into the fat that collects in the bottom of the pot, also I suggest that you brush some BBQ sauce on the ribs before putting them in the crock pot to provide additional moisture.

Super easy and works perfect every time! I really doubted this recipe but it actually turns the ribs slightly crispy outside and SUPER tender inside. I lightly brush them with BBQ sauce but only because we like BBQ sauce, not because it needs it.

Everyone is exactly right, these will be the best ribs you've ever had. Hands down. No competition. Forget your favorite bbq restaurants you don't need them with this recipe.

"The best ribs I've ever had in my life." - That's what my girlfriend told me after I cooked these for her. Holy cow, I will continue using this recipe. They were the best ribs I've ever had in my life too. The ribs were done after about 8 hours cooked on low, and then I covered them in BBQ sauce and put them in a 375 degree oven for about 15 minute. WOW!

This is the best recipe ever, fast, easy and delicious!!! I've even used regular pork ribs and they are just as good!! A must try!

Made these today, just as everyone said, fall off the bones, juicy, tender. I did not even use any bbq sauce. I put them on slow cook, and they were ready in just under 7 hours. I put a couple of baking potates between the racks and that helped hold them up. Dinner is served... with some coleslaw made earlier!

Awesome and easy recipe for flavorful, fall-off-the-bone ribs! My husband was skeptical when I said I was making ribs in the crock pot, but he thought they were fantastic.
