One of the most wickedly awesome and easy dinners I make in the crockpot is ribs. Throw some country style pork ribs in there, add your favorite BBQ sauce (I make my own because I like it spicy) and then cook on low all day long (10-12 hours). Serve with cole slaw or potato salad...yummy.

Can you share your sauce recipe or is it a family secret?

looks like saturday is going to be a good dinner. What if i were to grill them first real quick to give them some added flavor of the smoke and also that unique texture from the grill.

LT, I don't usually measure very accurately when I make this, but I think this is roughly what I do:

Sauté a minced onion and 2-3 cloves of minced garlic in a TBS or so of vegetable oil. Season with at least 2 TBS of chili powder and salt and pepper to taste. Add a cup of ketchup, a small can (8 oz) of tomato sauce, ¼ cup molasses, 2 TBS of cider vinegar, 2 TBS Worcestershire sauce, 2 TBS Dijon mustard and some dried red pepper flakes to taste (I add about a teaspoon). If this is too thick, add some water. Cook on low heat and stir often until flavors are blended (about 20 minutes). Season with salt and pepper to taste. I use a smoked salt that I buy here - not sure if you can buy it in the US.

If you want to get up that early in the morning, you can sure grill them for a few minutes. Grilling them after cooking won't work because they are falling apart...I sometimes brown them before I put them in the crock pot, but I'm not sure that makes much difference.
