Falling off the Bone Barbecue Ribs from Walking on Sunshine Recipes

This week I am sharing a great recipe that is perfect for any special holiday, occasion or any day of the week.  My Colonel and my son LOVE these ribs so we do have them often in the summer.  
The secret to them is I cook them all day in the crock pot and THEN put them on the grill.  You can even make these the day before if you're having company and put them on the grill right when your guests arrive.  I do this often when company is coming.  I like to have a clean kitchen and making the ribs the day before is a great way to keep things looking tidy when company arrives.

Cook the ribs in your crock pot first before finishing them off on the grill.

Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.  Remove from the crock pot and place in a baking dish.
Cover the ribs with barbecue sauce. Now, place your ribs on the grill over a medium heat.  You'll want to keep them on the grill until they look BEAUTIFUL.  You don't need to cook them too long because they're already cooked.  Remove from the grill and cut each rib into an individual serving.

Most of the times I use Sweet Baby Rays barbecue sauce.  On special occasions I use homemade barbecue sauce.  You can find the recipe HERE.

Falling Off the Bone Barbecue Ribs

Ingredients:
The Ribs:  I purchased St. Louis Style ribs, but have also used Baby Back Ribs.  Both are great tender cuts of meat and work great in this recipe.
The Rub:  I use plain old fashioned Season Salt; but you can use whatever is your favorite rub for meat.
The Secret Ingredient: Soda.  Yes, soda but do NOT use diet.  I've used Coca-Cola, 7-Up and Ginger Ale; usually whatever I have in the house. 
BBQ Sauce.  Whatever your favorite is; we love Sweet Baby Rays.  And I have made my own.    

Directions:
Sprinkle the ribs with the Season Salt and place in your crock pot.
Add the soda, enough to cover half way.
Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.
Remove from the crock pot and place in a baking dish and spread the BBQ sauce on top of the ribs.  
Place the ribs on the grill over a medium flame.  
Remember at this point your ribs are basically cooked all the way; we're just finishing them up on the grill to get those amazing grill marks.
Remove from the grill and slice the ribs into individual servings.    

They really are delicious and so EASY.  The meat really does fall off the bone by cooking them this way.

  33. I would recommend these ribs to everyone. They are the best. Fall off the bone delicious!

  34. Soda? Hm, I would never have thought of soda. Personally, I like Japanese miso sauce. It's quite delicious on pork. You can get it in any Japanese supermarket online or order it online at a gourmet store.
