When I was done making the b'b'q sauce, I knew just by tasting the sauce the ribs would be amazing! I, did, however, mix carrots and potatoes in the slow cooker. Wow, what a fantastic meal!

Family loved it; took several servings. Left out the chili because grandchildren do not like peppery dishes

Very good flavor. Plenty of liquid/sauce but not very thick. I laddled most out at the end of cooking and thickened it on the stove with a simple rue.

The sauce was great, and I'll be using that again. But it didn't make enough to cover the ribs well. There didn't seem to be enough moisture in the cooker, so the ribs came out kinda dry. Next time, I'll skip the onions (didn't really add much flavor) and double the sauce, and layer it as ribs/sauce/ribs/sauce.

Check your slow cooker lid to make sure it fits tightly. A properly working slow cooker will create enough liquid to keep the meat from drying out.
