Crock Pot BBQ Sticky Ribs

We are about to be entering a deep freeze here in Chicagoland and there is no way I will be doing grilling of any kind. Between the massive amounts of snow we have had and the approaching sub zero temps it is safe to say my grill will not be seeing much use for a while. I love BBQ and I had some baby back ribs in the freezer that I bought while on sale a few weeks ago. I decided to give in to my bbq craving and make them in the crock pot. Well, they were BEYOND good. My husband kept saying how much he liked them and my toddler ate some too!

Crock Pot BBQ Sticky Ribs
Serves 4

2 full slabs pork loin back ribs (cut into 4)
1/4 cup honey
1 tbsp. garlic powder
1 tbsp. red pepper flakes
1 tsp salt
3 tbsp. smoked paprika
1 bottle bbq sauce of your choice
1/4 cup liquid smoke (Optional but I love the flavor)

Spray the bottom of your crock pot with non stick cooking spray. Mix the dry seasonings together and sprinkle over ribs. Drizzle with honey. Place ribs in crock pot and top with liquid smoke. Cover and cook on low 6-8 hours. During last 30 minutes of cooking cover with bbq sauce. Continue cooking until sauce is warm. Enjoy!


  1. These look scrumptious! Would country ribs work instead of baby back?

  2. These look amazing! Baby back ribs were always what I picked as my birthday dinner when I was a kid. I don't have a grill at my apartment so I can't wait to try these!
