Are you looking for a fool-proof recipe for your 4th of July party?  Look no further.  These ribs are super easy and absolutely delicious!  It’s been so hot here lately that I decided to try making ribs in the crock pot. The result was fall of the bone tender ribs.  They tasted amazing, and we didn’t have to stand out in the heat to make them!

I bought the ribs at Costco, and they come with the membrane already removed.  That is a huge timesaver for me!  I took another shortcut and basted the ribs with Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce.  Delicious!!  These ribs are going to be the main attraction at our 4th of July feast next week!

  2. i love your recipes in the paper,first time to your web site,thanks for answering ? so fast! have a good holiday.

  3. I was just looking online yesterday for a recipe for ribs for the crockpot as our grill is out of commission! Great timing! These ribs look delicious – I'm definitely trying these for the 4th. Thanks!

  4. You stand the ribs up on their bones – don't lay them down in the crockpot. This helps keep them out of the fat and juices
