REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
I used babyback ribs in this and it was heavenly! Good combination of flavors in the sauce. One recommendation is to use a very basic bbq sauce for the base because the other flavors work really well together and a flavored sauce might throw them off. The ribs were almost tender after 6 hours so I turned the crock pot to warm setting and let them cook one more hour on warm and they were ready when we were for dinner.
