What I love about allrecipes is that you can always count on thousands of people who have tried the recipe, made little tweaks, and written about those tweaks in their reviews. I feel it helps make a very good recipe even better. Usually I always follow a recipe first as written, then the next time I make changes. However, upon seeing the many reviewers who indicated it was too much ketchup taste, I decided to go with the reviewers who substituted their favorite BBQ sauce for the ketchup. I subbed 2 cups of Stubb's original bbq sauce for the ketchup, and kept everything else the same. Cooked in the oven for 30 minutes as indicated (I did cover them with foil to help expedite the release of the fat). Then transferred to the crockpot and poured sauce mixture on top. In my crockpot it did cook for 5 hours on low and they were tender at that point, but not falling apart from the bone. To serve I poured all the sauce back into a medium saucepan, and let it reduce to help thicken it for about 20 minutes. I served the sauce in a gravy boat for those who like their ribs extra saucy. The combination of bbq sauce, chili sauce, and the remaining sauce ingredients was spot on: not overly sweet, not overly vinegary, just right for us. This will be my "go to" recipe when making BBQ ribs in a crockpot. Thank you to all the recipe testers and the original recipe poster.
