    Great recipe! I served the served the sauce in a little dish with each serving, so people could choose how they wanted it - either used as a dip or poured over their plate. My husband remarked on how good it was for days afterwards.

    Very delicious! My husband says it is the best barbeque he has ever had! I make it at least once a month!

    Currently making this for dinner and I just snuck a piece and it was delicious! The meat was so tender and just melted in my mouth. I only cooked for 4.5 hours on low then turned to warm and everything was cooked just fine. Going to whip up some mashed potatoes to go with it! GREAT recipe, I will absolutely make this again!

    These ribs were easy and delicious! I had forgotten to turn my crock pot on when I put them in and ended up cooking them on high for 4 hours instead and they turned out perfectly! I will definitely make these again!

    Great recipe, as country ribs can be too dry if not careful. I used watermelon bar-b-que sauce. It adds a whole new concept to the flavor. Many recipes on the internet. I like the ones that have dark corn syrup as an ingredient. (Hard Rock Café for example)

    This is really a great slow-cooker Bar-B-Que recipe. I would test tenderness at the 6 hr mark. You don't want them tough. If you want a real explosion, try watermelon Bar-B-Que sauce. Many on the internet. I like the ones that have dark corn syrup as one of the ingredients (Hard Rock Café for example) You may just find a sauce that you must have on hand. I sure did!
