BBQ Pork Chops – Crockpot

Who does not like RIBS! The messier the better! Ribs are one of my signature meals. I typically make them in the oven first then grill. I wanted something different so played around with my crockpot and ribs. My grilled ribs are a favorite of our friends and family. I can not wait to share my crockpot ribs with friends and family now! They turned out amazing! If I must admit better than my grilled ribs!
