Succulent BBQ Spare Ribs Recipe


You will never have more delicious bbq spare ribs than the ribs from this recipe. The crockpot gets the meat tender and juicy while the barbecue finishes them off with some nice grill marks for texture. Whenever I ask Michael, “What do you want for dinner?” his usual response is, “ribs.” We have a little white board on our fridge so we can write grocery list items we need and “ribs” ends up there a lot too. Although the other day I saw “ambrosia” written up there which was a new one. The little white board on the fridge really does work because I did actually make that ambrosia. Hello 1960!


Spare Ribs

BBQ Sauce

Salt & Pepper


Salt & Pepper both sides of your spareribs. Place ribs in a large crockpot and set on low. Slather BBQ sauce over both sides of the ribs. Set the crockpot for 8 hours. After 6 hours check the ribs and if they are falling off the bone you can take them out. If not, keep them in for another hour or two. Once they reach the desired doneness transfer them to a platter. Place the ribs on the barbeque heated to a medium high temperature. Cook just long enough to get a few grill marks on each side. Remove from grill and serve. Enjoy!

  1. Ribs are my favorite! Whenever I ask my husband what he wants for dinner….he says tacos. Hmmm…really?

    I’m going to try the crockpot recipe. I usually cook mine covered in the oven for 2 hours at 400 and then finish them off on the grill. A crockpot would be so much easier and less messy! 🙂
