The ribs were delicious, but I gave it a 4 because as this recipe is the ribs would lack that outer crisp you get from the grill. My boyfriend is very picky and not a big rib eater, but he LOVED these.
My modifications: I Trimmed some of the fat (to get more crisp from the meat, there is still plenty of fat inside the meat. I slathered with olive oil and garlic (a little weird, but we put this on almost everything we cook) and then seasoned with my own salt-free rub. There is enough salt in the BBQ sauce, it didn't need more in the spices.
I used Stubbs spicy bbq sauce and mixed 1 part bbq sauce to 2 parts water... to fill the slow cooker to 2/3rds full. I lined the bottom with onions and garlic before placing the meat and sauce in.
The only modification I made in the cooking procedure was in the end. I pulled the ribs and basted with the remaining bbq sauce (from the bottle) and broiled in the oven till crisp.
Optional: I took the liquid from the crock, kept the onions and garlic in it and reduced it to reuse for leftovers or in baked beans. Tip- let it set in the fridge overnight to skim the fat.
