I was really skeptical about ribs in a slow cooker, so I tried this recipe twice to make sure that the first time wasn't a fluke. I am a convert, that's for sure. These were amazing! First time, I made it exactly as the recipe called for and these ribs were fall off the bone good. The second time, I added smoked paprika and garlic powder to the rub on the ribs before I put them in the slow cooker. I also used 1/2 cup of beer instead of the water (any liquid will add flavour). I cooked them on high in the slow cooker for 3 hours and 45 minutes. I covered a 9 x 11 baking dish with tin foil (to help with clean up) and put the ribs in the uncovered baking dish. I coated the ribs with bbq sauce and put them in the oven at 350F for 20 minutes. I pulled the ribs out and added another thin layer of bbq sauce before putting them back in the oven under the broiler for 7 to 10 minutes to get that crust on the top. The ribs were perfect. My family thanks you for this recipe which I will be using again and again! Amanda
