- 1 rack of pork ribs, side or back are fine
- ¼ cup water
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp dry mustard
- 1 tsp paprika
- ⅓ cup ketchup
- 2 tbsp cider vinegar
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 tsp reserved dry rub
- 1 tsp Worcestershire
- ½ tsp liquid smoke
Remove the membrane from the ribs and trim off any excess fat. Mix spices together for dry rub, remove 1 tsp and reserve for BBQ sauce. Rub remaining spice rub all over both sides of ribs.
Add ¼ cup of water to slow cooker, then add ribs. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8. (I prefer to cook on high for 4 hours).
In a small pot heat all ingredients for BBQ sauce over medium heat. Bring to a boil and cook for 3-5 mins, stirring frequently so it doesn't burn. Remove from heat
Carefully remove ribs from slow cooker, discard excess fat + liquid. Brush with BBQ sauce. Place on a foil lined baking sheet and broil for 2-4 minutes (check frequently as it can burn quickly depending how hot your broiler is).
