Here’s a recipe for Crockpot Barbecue Ribs:


  • 2 racks of baby back ribs
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Start by preparing the ribs. Remove the membrane from the back of the ribs by loosening it with a butter knife and pulling it off. This will help the flavors penetrate the meat better.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the barbecue sauce, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, smoked paprika, garlic powder, black pepper, and salt. This will be your barbecue sauce mixture.
  3. Cut the racks of ribs into smaller sections that will fit in your crockpot. Place the ribs in the crockpot, stacking them if necessary.
  4. Pour the barbecue sauce mixture over the ribs, making sure they are well coated.
  5. Cover the crockpot and cook the ribs on low heat for 6-8 hours, or on high heat for 3-4 hours. The longer you cook them, the more tender they will become.

  1. After the cooking time is up, carefully remove the ribs from the crockpot and place them on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil.
  2. Preheat your oven’s broiler on high. Brush the ribs with some of the barbecue sauce from the crockpot, reserving the rest for serving.
  3. Place the ribs under the broiler for 3-5 minutes, or until they are nicely browned and caramelized. Keep a close eye on them to prevent burning.
  4. Remove the ribs from the oven and let them rest for a few minutes. Serve them with the remaining barbecue sauce on the side.

That’s it! You now have delicious, tender Crockpot Barbecue Ribs ready to enjoy. Serve them with your favorite side dishes like coleslaw, cornbread, or mashed potatoes for a complete meal.
