    Great recipe. 6 hours in low was a little too long in slow cooker (already fall off bone). Grilled to finish instead of broiling.

    I enjoy this recipe more than my husband's smoked ribs! I've made this at least 4 times. Very easy and delicious with zero fuss. This time I put the rub on overnight and they were even better.

    Some of thr best ribs I've had. I used half smoked paprika instead of only sweet and upped the brown sugar; and put the dry rub on the ribs to sit overnight before throwing them in the crockpot the next day. Reducing the sauce to braise and broiling them is key so don't skip those steps!
