Place the ingredients in your Crock Pot, cover and begin cooking on high temperature for at least an hour, then turn down to low. Don’t raise the lid until you’ve cooked the ribs for six or eight hours.
Remove the ribs from the juice in the pot, let them cool and then place them in the refrigerator or freezer until you’re ready to use them. You can keep them in the freezer for quite a long time, if necessary.
On the right day, fire up your grill so the coals will be good and hot. Let the ribs thaw, then smother them with the barbecue sauce you like best. Grill so they’re heated through and ready to serve.
The meat will be tender and tasty. You’ll enjoy these and will want to keep some on hand for any quick occasion. Just watch the sales at your market and lay in a supply when the price is right, and you’ll be enjoying ribs on many occasions this year.
