Barbequed Spareribs in a Crockpot

I know, it sounds like a contradiction in terms. Still, I don't know how to use an outdoor grill, and I am not about to lose out on a chance to eat BBQ ribs.

3 to 4 pounds of spareribs
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of pepper
1 sliced onion
16 ounces of favorite barbecue sauce

Place onion slices at the bottom of the crock pot.
Rub ribs with salt and pepper. The spare ribs, not your own. This isn't that sort of blog.
Place the ribs in a broiler pan under the broiler for 7 minutes. Turn over. Broil another 7 minutes.
Slice ribs into serving pieces and place in crock pot. My crock pot is 5 1/2 quarts.
Pour in barbeque sauce.
Cover and cook on LOW for 8 to 10 hours.

I LOVE this recipe. Bob likes it well enough, but he isn't too fond of boney meats. Yeah yeah, that's what she said. Anyways, the meat does fall right off of the bone. I never order ribs out anymore, because it is always a disappointment to me when I compare them to this.

This post today inspired by friend Wendy at Weightwhat and her burnt offerings.


  1. Uh oh. There's a broiler involved... Could mean flames...

    And Helen, I have to ask - Did Sherri take over your body? Or are you typing in tongues now, too?

  2. And does Bob know you're calling him "But"?

  3. Wendy, my apologies for being so anxious to get this recipe to you, that I neglected to properly proofread my post. I'll try to be more careful.

  4. So since "she" said "But" doesn't like boney meats (this is getting ugly) why don't you use boneless ribs?

    Glad you clarified the rib rub part early - I almost had my shirt off.

    Now, can I have a vegetarian version of this recipe?

  5. Candy - A vegetarian version? Now that's just wrong. Tofu ribs? That would be worse than tofurkey.
