Slow Cooker Barbecue Ribs

READY IN: 6hrs 30mins
Recipe by Chef Booshman

Got this recipe from one of those Church pot luck supper deals. These are super easy to make. It doesn't call for bottled Bar-b-q sauce and there are never any leftovers.

Very good flavour, easy prep, and effortless cooking. My ribs got fairly overcooked, as I set the slow cooker and couldn't get back to it until the cooking time was almost done. I'm not sure if there wasn't enough liquid, or it was simply too much time. Regardless, after picking out the few frazzled ones, the rest were more or less fine. I'm not sure what Heinz chili sauce is like, but I used 1/4 cup of the Asian chili sauce we buy in Chinatown, and that was almost too hot. The full 3/4 cup would have been nasty! I think I'll make these again, but I'll definitely have to figure out the cooking time a little more.
