Barbecue Pork Ribs

3 pounds pork ribs (on the bone)

6-8 cups Dr. Pepper

1/3 cup honey

1 tsp. liquid smoke

1 bottle barbecue sauce (CC likes Tony Roma’s Carolina Honeys best)

Salt

Seasoning

Rub ribs with salt and seasoning. CC like to mix his own, but any sort of meat rub, steak seasoning, even Mrs. Dash will do.

Spray the inside of your slow cooker with a shot of non-stick cooking spray then put in half the bottle barbecue sauce.

Add the ribs, then the honey, liquid smoke, remaining barbecue sauce and Dr. Pepper. Fill the slow cooker with the pop until the liquid is about an inch away from the top.

Cover and cook on medium heat for about eight to ten hours, until meat falls off the bone.

Serve with more barbecue sauce and savor every wonderful bite!
