I think anyone that would fit would work. I have a baking rack, that you cool cakes one fit mine. I have never tried a dry rub on ribs but if you do let us know how it goes.

Has anyone ever done a dry rub on the ribs in the crockpot? Seems like you could bypass alot of calories like that. I have heard that you can wad foil up in the bottom of the pot and use it for a rack to keep the meat out of the the fat that renders off the ribs. Does anyone know where you could buy such a rack? emoticon

Kitt, I heard if you wash the sauerkraut it takes a lot of the sodium out of it. emoticon emoticon emoticon

I don't use any, just buy a good sauerkraut, I don't like the canned kind. I get it in a bag, sometimes I do add a diced tomatoes or stewed tomatoes. I can my own tomaotes but that gives it a different flavor. I just put in the 1/2 the kraut then the western ribs then the rest of the kraut, let cook 60 to 8 hours on low and the meat just melts in your mouth and the sauerkraut taste great too.
so easy so tastey but high in sodium as sauerkraut is high in sodium but once in a while is okay.

I've never made the ribs with pre-bottled bbq sauce. I'm thinking it would get pretty watered down with the steam that builds up in there which causes more water. I'm wondering if you added half a spice packet from McCormicks if that would help add flavor to your hubby's liking? I think they sell the bbq sauce and if not I can bet the potroast or beef stew mix would make it great too.

I have made the recipe I posted here and it was very tasty and you can control the sodium too. Good luck

I made the ribs yesterday and thought they were great. My husband thought that they did not have enough of flavor. I used a whole bottle of BBQ sauce. I think next time I will try a homemade sauce. I saw one on this thread.

DOes anyone have any other ideas? Does anyone make ribs with a sauce other than BBQ?

MB so glad you loved them. Most everything that comes out of the slow cooker is just so tasty and tender. Its so easy too. Add a bit of this or that let it cook and wow so yummy. Best part you can buy cheaper cuts of meat and they get so tender and yummy no one ever knows.

They really are delicous and because all the ingredients are easy to get or you already have in the kitchen I thought it was great. Makes alot of sauce so if it's great for the remaining ribs to be pulled and shredded. We did the pizza but, it's also great in wheat wraps. Hope you like them.

Here is my favorite recipe for ribs:

Melt-In-Your-Mouth Barbeque Ribs
2 sides pork spareribs (about 6 pounds), separated
1 (28-ounce) can chunky tomato sauce (smooth is fine if you can't find chunky. We use smooth.)
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Place the spareribs in the bottom of a slow cooker. In a medium bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients. Reserve 6 tablespoons for BBQ Pizza.
Pour the mixture over the spareribs. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours or on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours.

These were fantastic and plenty of meat left over for pulled pork sandwiches or wraps. We've used it to make pizza too...used a wheat based crust :)

If anybody is close to a Trader Joe's, they sell "Maui Short Ribs" in the meats section (fresh, not frozen) with the sauce and everything all in the package. I just cut it open and pour it all into the crock pot, and add a little water. Excellent!

Oh, that sounds wonderful. I usually have no choice but to leave mine on for 9 hours or more by the time I get home. I think I might ask for one for Christmas also.

Yes, I must admit that my ribs fall apart also because I end up cooking them on low over 8 hours while I am at work.

I use a whole bottle of BBQ sauce when I do mine.

Cheryl your right they do fall off the bone. but you can cook them a lot less.
I still BBQ our ribs most of the time, I use the crockpot when I won't be home or have time to grill. We love them no matter what way they are cooked.

This may be an odd "complaint" but when I do ribs in the crockpot, they get too tender, if that makes sense. They fall apart to the point the meat has to be scooped up with a spoon. To have ribs, there has to be something to hold!
So what I do is boil the ribs, then put them in the oven with my own sauce recipe that is kinda sweet but a lil vinegary tang too, and let that get brown on them a bit. Good and still tender.
I dont put anything on there to tenderize them, maybe I just cook them too long.
I think I will try them again in there, and cook on high, not low, and maybe less time.

I'll put in my 2-cents worth also - although just repeating what has already bee said.

I do ribs in the crockpot all the time with BBQ sauce and sometimes I slice up an onion and throw it in.

Oh ya, and I also do the roast with BBQ sauce and then pull the meat apart. Awesome!

I have done ribs in the slow cooker as well. We found it best to add the bbq sauce about 30 minutes before serving and cooking them on slow for about 7 1/2 hours then add the bbq sauce and then cook them on slow for another half hour.

We added a little bit of water in with the ribs but no sauce. They turned out really good. We used Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce.

We also did this to make pulled pork bbq sandwiches. Those tasted awesome. :)

I have used ribbletts too and regular ribs cut up. I also add saurerkraut (no bbq sauce) and let them cook all day too. Yum yum , I add a can of tomaotes witht he kruat for a bit of a different flavor.

Pork chops with any cream soup pored over them is good too, especially cream of mushroom, I use the healthy request kind from campbells.
