Slightly adapted from the BBQ Bible book.
Please watch my short recipe video!! It's right below the recipe directions.
Add all the ingredients for the Memphis dry rub to a bowl and mix well to combine.
Make sure you have removed the silver membrane from the back (rib side) of the Baby Back Ribs. You can do this by inserting a table knife under the membrane at one end of the ribs to lift and loosen the membrane
Then, using a paper towel to grip the membrane, slowly peel it back off the ribs. Sometimes it will come off in one long piece, and sometimes it will break apart, so you'll need to do it in pieces.
If you're still not sure how to do this, there are lots of videos on google that will show you how.
I cut my ribs into two large pieces so that they would fit in the slow cooker.
Generously rub the spice rub mixture onto both sides of the ribs, there may be some rub left over.
SLOW COOKER RIBS - Add the ribs on their side to your slow cooker and cook on HIGH for 3-5hrs, check them after 4hrs, they may be done already.
Or, cook on low for 7-9hrs.
While the ribs are in the slow cooker you can go ahead and add all the BBQ sauce ingredients to a pan. Stir to mix them well, then simmer for about 1.5 hrs, or until the sauce has reduced significantly and thickened up.
Once the ribs are cooked very carefully remove them to a foil lined baking sheet, and turn your broiler on high.
Using a silicone basting brush, brush on a generous amount of the BBQ sauce onto each side of the ribs
Put the ribs under the broiler - not too close or they will burn - and broil for about 3-4 minutes per side and the sauce is good and sticky.
Serve hot with extra BBQ sauce for dipping.
OVEN BAKED RIBS - Line a large sheet pan with foil, then add the ribs (already covered in the rub). Preheat the oven to 300F and when it comes to temperature, add the ribs to the center rack.
Bake for about 2 1/2 to 3 hours for spare ribs, or 1 1/2 to 2 hours for baby back ribs.
Then add the BBQ sauce and broil as directed above.
Nutrition Facts - these are approximate for four servings, and are calculated assuming 4lbs of baby back ribs.
The nutrition calculator also assumes each person will consume 1/4 of the BBQ sauce, (to serve 4 people) but that's unlikely.
