These outrageously delicious Slow Cooker Barbecued Pork Ribs start with the simple method of brining and finish in the slow cooker and the grill.
What is brining? Brining is a mixture of kosher salt and water used to add moisture and flavor to meat. I use the brining method for turkey, pork and chicken. Brining and refrigerating the ribs the night before will extract much of the fat from the meat. This allows the fat to rise to the top of the water and makes it easy to remove the fat for cleaner and less fattening ribs. Check out this article for more information on brining.
Today I am sharing with you a simple and easy barbecued ribs recipe. I brine the ribs the night before and then cook them in a slow cooker the following day (they can also be covered and baked on low in the oven for 4 hours). These ribs are ALWAYS a hit and the recipe has been shared by all of us over the years. This barbecue sauce is simple to make and better than any bottled sauce out there!
