Heat your oven to 400 degrees. Sprinkle salt and pepper liberally over both sides of the ribs. Put the ribs on a large baking sheet covered with foil and bake for 15 minutes or until the ribs begin to brown.
While the ribs are cooking, mix all the BBQ sauce ingredients together in a bowl.
Cut the ribs in half and transfer them to your slow cooker. Add 2-3 cups of the BBQ sauce and cook on high for 6 hours or until the meat is falling off the bone.
Seriously, these ribs were so tender that some of the ribs didn’t even make it out of the slow cooker.
Reheat the oven to 400 degrees. Finally, transfer the ribs back to the baking sheet to bake for another 15 minutes so that the sauce caramelizes on top of the ribs.
Top with more BBQ sauce (or not because they are delicious on their own) and enjoy!
