“The genius of this recipe is the first step–roasting ribs in the oven. This removes fat and liquid that would otherwise cause soupy results in the Crock-Pot.” — PEACHESNCREAM2

Make Slow Cooker BBQ Better
“For those who have used pork tenderloin or boneless pork chops, you’re using an expensive cut of meat when the cheap cuts work as well.” — KAYETD

“I had some trouble finding liquid smoke but it was worth the bother. I’ve never used it before and it definitely added to the taste.” — KEZ

“Poked a few holes in the meat in order to let the sauce soak in.” — Kelly

“Using good BBQ sauce is just as important as using good wine. Stay away from the cheap sauces as they do affect the flavor of the foods. If you don’t like sweet, don’t use a sweet sauce.” — Cooking 101
