I have never made slow cooker ribs before. I have started using my slow cooker a few times a week. I am always looking for new recipes to try.

I’m ready to try the ribs now, but it’s too far to get to your house, so I’ll follow the fantastic recipe you’ve provided and treat my family to delicious ribs with fantastic barbecue sauce. This year we’re watching the big game at home, so this will make up for not going out to participate with a big crowd.

I thin making your own BBQ sauce is a great idea. My husband loves ribs, so this would be a great recipe for him!
I saw the other page and that Skittles was one of the sponsors and I guessed you were going to use them in this recipe! How unique and fun!
