Smoked Ribs Might Be The Best, But…

The best ribs hands down are smoked. However, if you don’t have a smoker and/or don’t have the skills, that’s okay.

Why? Simply because the next runner up to a perfect smoked barbecue rib, is the slow cooker rib. These ribs are juicy, tender, and falling off the bone delicious!

I’m keeping the recipe at a minimum for people who aren’t making as many ribs as I do. If you want to see the entire recipe or print it out check out my Homemade Barbecue Recipe.

Tips For Making Slow Cooker Barbecue Ribs

Don’t overdo it on the barbecue sauce. Too much barbecue sauce, isn’t a good thing, at least while these babies are cooking. They won’t get the right texture or flavor that we’re looking for.

Make sure to temp the ribs in the first three hours. You want to make sure that they get up to at least 140ºF in the first three hours to stay out of the “danger zone”.

What’s that mean exactly? Well, the danger zone is where bacteria have the opportunity to grow. Getting meat up in temperature in the first three hours is critical, to cooking food safely so no one gets sick.
