Cooking your rib tips in a slow cooker will give you tender, falling-off-the-bone ribs. Then finish them off under the broiler or throw them on the grill for a few minutes.

  • Mix BBQ sauce and liquid smoke until well combined.

  • Place ribs in the slow cooker and pour BBQ sauce mixture evenly over ribs.

  • Cook on Low until ribs are tender, 4 to 6 hours.

  • Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.

  • Remove ribs from the slow cooker and baste with remaining BBQ sauce.

  • Broil ribs in the preheated oven for 3 to 5 minutes on each side.

Cook's Note:

Instead of broiling the rib tips, you can also throw them on the hot grill.

I made this and although the taste was okay, it is probably something I wouldn't make again. Although I did like the bite that it gave, it was a little to sweet for my taste. Overall okay, but I wouldn't rave about it. Read More
