Crock Pot Ribs
Crock Pot Ribs
Summertime is full of barbecues, watermelon and lemonade. But sometimes it’s just too hot outside to cook on the grill. Which means it’s also too hot to have the oven on for any length of time. Well, at least in Texas anyway! That’s where a recipe for Crock Pot Ribs comes in handy! While you’re busy having fun in the sun, these ribs are cooking away in the crock pot. Add a few baked potatoes to the crock pot or make this potato salad to go with your ribs. So, enjoy your summertime activities and come home to a deliciously cooked meal!

Since it is just my husband and myself, I usually only cook 1/2 the slab of ribs at a time. I love using these crock pot liners which makes for easier clean up!
If you’ve never used liquid smoke before, it is usually sold in the seasoning aisle near the worcestershire sauce. And because I don’t use any refined sugar I use sugar free barbecue sauce. I found this brand (G. Hughes) at my local Walmart and it is some of the best of I have tasted!
- 1 slab of pork ribs
- bottle of liquid smoke
- 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
- barbecue sauce
- Begin by laying ribs meat side up on a plate or pan to season.
- Then mix all the dry seasonings together in a bowl.
- Sprinkle the meat with liquid smoke seasoning to cover with liquid.Then sprinkle the dry seasonings on top of the liquid smoke.
- Place ribs meat side up in the crock pot.
- Pour barbecue sauce over the ribs.
- Cook on low for about 8 hours.
- If you are home while they are cooking, I usually pour a little more barbecue sauce on the ribs about halfway through cooking.
- Also, the dry seasonings are just an estimate. I generally just sprinkle them directly from the shaker bottle onto the ribs to cover them to my liking.
