REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
I agree with not basting. Keep that steam locked in tight! I also cooked it longer because I wanted to make sure the ribs were good and tender. I probably did 8 hours on low, but my crock pot cooks that way.If the ribs are submerged enough there isn't any need to baste anyway.

Basting every 30 minutes not only defeats the purpose of cooking in a crock pot (fix and forget!) but opening the lid each time releases the steam you need to keep the ribs tender. I followed the suggestion of simply letting the ribs simmer in the sauce. I stirred things once about half way through cooking time to make sure everything was evenly coated. The ribs were tender and the Dr. Pepper sauce is really tasty!
