Delicious! Easy to make!

ribs dont render fat when cooked this way. A lot of flavor is lost and meat is fall off the bone but squishy not a good texture.
These were absolutely delicious and truly did fall off the bone. I will most definitely be making them again.
Amazing ribs were gone in seconds

This recipe was amazing! My ribs came out fantastic. It’s finger licking good and falls right off the bones. I only cooked it for about 5 hours cause it was already falling off the bone. Then I followed the steps and did it in the oven instead of the grill. Now I’m ready to compete with my brothers ribs lol
This is by far my favorite recipe to make. So simple and you feel like a grill master when it's complete! It's a Sunday staple in this household.

It was great the family really enjoyed it
Just sugar..sweet taste. There was no flavor. No WOW taste. No That's AMAZING....none zero...just a sweet plain jane ribs. If it was not for the hot sauce I added. The ribs would have no flavor at all. Will I make this again? No.
Easy but it was way to sweet for my us.

Fall off the bone good. A little difficult to get out of the crockpot but well worth the effort.

Too sweet for my taste
So Delicious and Easy to prepare. Only issue I had was like many others ( ribs fall off the bone ) but were still the best I ever eatin! Will be my go to recipe just wont leave in the crock pot as long next time

Wonderful flavor, and the best ribs I ever made, and I am known for my ribs! Actually, I made this myself before I saw this recipe, but here it is so she gets the credit! One caution- if you cook your ribs too long, they will literally disintegrate off the bone- then you have to make yummy pulled pork!
turned out good the kids loved it

My husband LOVED this recipe! He ate it all in no time! Easy to make, followed the recipe exact.

This recipe was a hit in my household. I used two 3lbs baby back racks of ribs with same amount of ingredients. I also cooked in less time. I cooked the ribs 5 hours and they were falling off the bone. I didn't bother to put them on the grill. These ribs were absolutely delicious!!! This recipe is my new way of cooking ribs!

Wonderful, best ribs I’ve had! Would use less sauce next time as I had quite a bit leftover
Terry 22 Oct 2017
Awesome. So tender couldn't transfer to the grill without falling apart. Great flavor.

Favorite rib recipe to date! I cooked in the crock pot on low for 7 hours and then in the oven at 350 for 15 min with the sauce. Juicy and falls apart! We're not big rib fans, but this will be made again and again.

Overall the taste of these was good, but the cooking time was a too long. Fall of the bone turns into bones falling out (even if careful with tongs) and results in a poor grilling experience for the BBQ portion. The sauce was an excessive amount for a single slab of ribs as well - like twice too much.

Excellent!! Finger licking, lip smacking, fight over the last bits delicious! I created the marinade and soaked the ribs in it overnight before cooking the next day...moist, falling off the bone. Subtle hints of pineapple, sweetness of brown sugar couldn't be happier!

Love the simplicity of the recipe and will not change anything until I try it out, I just got a new grill and will give it a test run on this recipe. At what temp should I maintain the grill?
