How to make it

  • Crank your crockpot up to HIGH and add the 1 qt thinned BBQ sauce. I save leftover BBQ sauce and boil it with some coffee and a tablespoon of vinegar. It is perfect for this recipe.
  • Boil enough water (not in the crockpot but in a separate pot) to cover ribs - but don't add them until the water is boiling.
  • Boil for at least a minute and no more than 5.
  • Immediately remove the ribs and place them in the crockpot - make sure the BBQ sauce covers them completely.
  • Turn down the crockpot to WARM and cover.
  • Cook for at least 24 hours on WARM.
  • Serve with fresh BBQ sauce - I used KC Masterpiece (c) but you can use whatever you like.
  • Enjoy because you will wish you doubled the recipe!

    Right, Joe, that is the safest thing to do - bring to a boil first and you know you start with a clean set of ingredients. Also, by raising the temperature initially, you don't have to worry with food that is heating up so slowly that it gives things chance to multiply and create toxins etc.

    My oven is like yours... doesn't go below around 180 so I have to use the crockpot on warm to get down to 140.

    I have experimented with this in the oven, setting it at about 175°F and cooking stews for at least 8 hours. It has worked well for me and I haven't had any problems. I bring the pot to the boil before I put it in the oven.

    Yes, you actually keep it on WARM for 24 hours.

    And note if you boil it too long at the beginning, you will toughen the meat - not something you want to do.

    BTW, leftovers - which I doubt there will be any - you can easily strip the meat from the bone and use as pulled pork.

    I am very aware of food safety concerns over low temperature cooking - especially temperatures this low. And that is the reason for boiling the ribs initially - removes any surface bacteria yet does is not long enough to toughen the meat.

    Note: the only problem might come from an extended power outage so do be mindful that the crockpot actually has power to it the entire time. My motto - if in doubt, toss it out!
