Crockpot BBQ Ribs

These Crockpot BBQ Ribs are so juicy and tender and they are super easy to make.

They come out soooo perfect after slow cooking in the crockpot all day.

The meat falls right off the bone and the rich barbecue flavor is delicious.

You can also adjust the heat by eliminating the cayenne pepper or adding more to your taste.

Turn on the broiler in the oven.  Carefully remove the ribs from the slow cooker to a broiler pan with the bone side up. I use two pair of tongs as the meat is very tender and falling apart.

Brush the ribs with half of the remaining barbecue sauce and broil for about 4 minutes, about 10 inches below the broiler.

Carefully turn them over and brush on the remaining barbecue sauce. Broil for 4 more minutes.
