Recipe Notes

  • This recipe gives you a good amount of sauce!

Helpful Tips:

  • Sometimes baby back ribs are also known as loin ribs. You can use either.
  • You can cook these ribs in your slow cooker either on high for 4 hours or on low for 8 hours. I find they come out exactly the same. I prefer getting the ribs done quicker so I can eat them sooner.
  • Cut the ribs in half so they fit in the slow cooker better.
  • Make sure to cover both sides of the ribs with the bourbon sauce especially since they will have to overlap a little.
