Slow Cooker Dry Rub Baby Back Ribs
This easy to follow recipe makes Baby Back Ribs in your slow cooker with a homemade dry rub. You can substitute your own favorite dry rub recipe or a premade mix like one of our LGCM Rump Rubs. Do you have a secret dry rub that makes great ribs? Let us know in the comments below!
Remove ribs from packaging and thaw (if frozen). Cut each slab in half.
Combine brown sugar, chili powder, salt, black pepper, oregano, cayenne pepper and sugar in a small bowl and spread the mixture over the ribs.
Put enough water (or beer if desired) in your crock pot to cover the bottom of the pot. Coat the ribs with a thin layer of BBQ Sauce, and place in the bottom of the crock pot with the bones facing down.
Cook on low for 6 hours. Meat should be falling off the bone and ready to eat. Coat with more BBQ Sauce and enjoy!
Optional – Once you remove the ribs from the slow cooker, coat with BBQ Sauce and put under a broiler for 5 minutes to crisp the outside of the ribs.
