Saturday, June 07, 2008 Slow Cooker Smoky BBQ Ribs

3 1/2 lbs pork loin back ribs
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp. fresh ground pepper
3 tbsp liquid smoke
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 tsp salt
1 medium onion, sliced
1/2 cup cola
1 1/2 cups BBQ sauce

1. Spray the inside of a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker with cooking spray.

2. Remove inner skin from the ribs. Mix brown sugar, pepper, liquid smoke, garlic and salt together in a bowl and rub this mixture onto the ribs. Cut ribs into 4 inch pieces, then layer ribs and onion in the slow cooker. Pour cola over everything.

3. Cover and cook on a low heat setting for 8-9 hours or until ribs are tender (believe me, they're tender by then). Remove the ribs from slow cooker, and drain and discard the liquid.

4. Pour the BBQ sauce into a shallow bowl. Dip each of the rib pieces into sauce. Return the ribs to the slow cooker. Pour any remaining sauce over the ribs, then cover and cook on low for 1 hour.

Note: After dipping the ribs in the BBQ sauce I prefer to sear them on the grill instead of returning to the crockpot
