My Boss told me one day that I couldn't cook... The next Monday, I walked into work with these " Ribs " and after He finished eating them, My Boss was Speechless for a week! I hope you enjoy them as well....

this sounds soooooooooooo good :) my question is could you do this with pork shoulder or butt and put in crokpot?

I haven't tried doing it in a crock pot, But I don't see why not. You still will want to rub the seasonings and "foil" it up and refrigerate 24 hours... If you try this before I do, Let me know, and I too will post my results as well... Thanks for the comment!
