Absolutely scrumptious! I was a little worried about the spag. sauce and lack of other ingredients. But I was trying to get everything going in the crock pot and all the other recipies I was considering had a list of ingredients and steps a mile long so I just decided..what the heck I'll give it a try. Boy am I glad I did. As far as I'm concerned this is "the" recipe for ribs from now on. Obviously it couldn't get any easier. I did apply a dry rub of garlic granules, cumin, chili powder and montreal steak seasoning the night before as I had planned to use a different recipe. I used Kraft hickory smoked sauce, Prego (garlic, tomato, onion) and 1 c brown sugar. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Thanks for posting!

This has to be the most interesting way of making ribs I have ever tried. I was a little skeptical but these turned out to be absolutely delicious. I used St Louis style pork ribs, but otherwise followed the directions for the 6 hour method. The sauce was incredible, and the meat was extremely tender and moist, just falling off the bones.
