I work full-time and don't get home until 5:30 so until I get things around to make my dinner it is pretty late. That is why I love using my Crock Pot! I can come home to an amazing meal. These ribs are so yummy and easy to make. My husband absolutely loved them. He even admitted to sneaking a bite or two before I got home!

Loved this BBQ sauce on these ribs. They came out sooo tender. I love how easy this dish is to put together too ... makes you wonder why you spend time over a hot grill.

How To Make crock pot country style ribs with maple bbq sauce

  • 1
    Ribs: Sprinkle both sides with the garlic powder and Everglades seasoning. Place a paper towel over top and allow to rest while you make the sauce.
  • 2
    Sauce: Place all ingredients, except chopped bacon and the liquid smoke, in a saucepan. Mix well and heat stirring occasionally. Do not allow to burn. Once it begins to come to a soft boil, remove from heat, stir in bacon bits. Place the sauce in a bowl or glass measuring cup and cover with Saran Wrap. Set aside. (Do not refrigerate)
  • 3
    Spray your Crock Pot with cooking spray. Place ribs in and sprinkle with the mesquite liquid smoke. I used a cap full. Cook on low for 4 1/2 hours.
  • 4
    Check meat after the 4 1/2 hours. Should be a little pink. Drain the liquid and cover the ribs with the BBQ sauce and cook for another 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

    My Crock Pot cooks a little hotter than normal so you may have to adjust your times or cook until a meat thermometer reads 145°. I must add that your house is going to smell so yummy while this is cooking. Enjoy.
