Spicy Country Ribs

READY IN: 4hrs
Recipe by MsKittyKat

I use country ribs for this recipe because they are meatier than baby-backs and tend to have fewer bones. You could however, make this with baby-back ribs and reduce the cooking time somewhat. I like to serve them with biscuits and cole slaw on the side.

I found this recipe at myrecipes.com (with almost the same blurb at the beginning, by the way) and intended to share it here. This is a wonderful recipe - cheap, tasty, easy.

  4. Using tongs, remove the ribs from the cooker and arrange on a broiler pan.
  5. Heat the broiler.
  6. Pour the juices from the cooker into a bowl and place in the freezer for 10 minutes to hasten the separation of the fat.
