Slow Cooker BEST EVER BBQ Ribs

  • Cooking Time:

    7-8 hours on High or 10-12 hours on Low
  • Servings:

    4-5

Ingredients

2 - 3 lb. ribs, rack (pork loin ribs are the best)
3 1/2 c. pineapple juice (reserve 1/4 c. for basting before they are grilled)
1 1/2 c. brown sugar
16 oz. BBQ sauce, bottle (favorites, Famous Dave’s, Sweet Baby Rays)

The title says it all Slow Cook­er BEST EVER BBQ Ribs! Love this recipe as I can put it on ear­ly in the morn­ing, and know my meal can be ready in just 15 or 20 min­utes when I get home in the evening!

  1. Spray the slow cook­er with non-stick cook­ing spray or use a slow cook­er lin­er!
  2. Cut defrost­ed rib slabs into indi­vid­ual slabs (about 2–3 ribs each). Plac­ing the ribs into the slow cook­er.
  3. Mix the pineap­ple juice and brown sug­ar togeth­er and pour over the ribs.
  4. Cov­er. Cook on High for 6–7 hours or Low for 8–10 hours.
  5. When the ribs are done in the slow cook­er, use tongs to gen­tly pull them out (they will fall apart when you touch them).
  6. Start the grill on medi­um heat.
  7. While the grill is heat­ing up, mix togeth­er the bot­tle of BBQ sauce and the 1/4 cup of pineap­ple juice you reserved.
  8. Gen­tly place the ribs on the grill and and brush with BBQ/Pineapple sauce. Turn­ing the ribs twice, slather­ing with more sauce each time (you can’t have enough sauce!)
  9. The ribs will take about 10–15 min­utes to glaze over (as soon as that sauce starts to turn sticky, you know they are done!).

NOTE: I think the grilling steps real­ly add to the recipe but you can cer­tain­ly skip the grill if you don’t have one or don’t have time for it.

I’m mak­ing about 6 pounds of ribs tonight for din­ner for a group of friends (half of the ribs are pork loin, half baby back)… fol­lowed your recipe but added a lit­tle extra pineap­ple juice and brown sug­ar to cov­er all the ribs in my pot, though I didn’t have enough to com­plete­ly cov­er every last inch of ribs, some bits are pok­ing out! Hope­ful­ly that’s not a big deal… that mix­ture smells divine. Hop­ing they turn out great! Thanks for the recipe!!!

Thank you Judy for your ques­tion and Crock-Pot Girl for your answer, I was hop­ing I could make these this week­end, but the weath­er is already to cold for the BBQ grill in WI.
So I will try the broil­er method.

I’ve always used my moms BBQ sauce and have recieved noth­ing but com­pli­ments. It’s chili sauce and grape jel­ly. I usu­al­ly use a full bot­tle of chili sauce and about half a large jar of jel­ly. I bet this would be super deli­cious with the pineap­ple juice and brown sug­ar mixed. Will have to try, thanks.

You can put them under the broil­er to set the sauce if you can’t grill them

I cut my baby backs into 4 sec­tions & stand them on end in my 6 qt cook­er so fat drips off. Also, for those who haven’t tried the sauce.…my new fave is Sticky Fingers.…I’m a BBQ ribs snob so this is quite the rec­om­men­da­tion 🙂
