This Incredible Slow Cooker Baby Back Ribs recipe is the bomb. Of course, being raised in Texas…I know all about good BBQ. These aren’t slow-cooked with indirect heat from a smoker…BUT…trust me (and the Loon), these gems are still fall-off-the bone good, with so much flavor, you’ll throw your hat in the air, and yell: YEE HAW!!!
And making your own Homemade BBQ Sauce could not be easier, and the taste is authentic and just perfect for these ribs. Once you try this sauce, you’ll never buy the bottled stuff again. It’s that good, and so simple to make!
So incredibly easy to make, and SO GOOD!!!!!!!
