REVIEW: 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.

REVIEW: recipe rating
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!
