Crockpot BBQ Ribs

My crockpot is getting more use lately.  I'd really like to find more recipes for it.  My problem, though, is many crockpot recipes use "cream soups" in them.  Don't get me wrong, cream of mushroom and cream of chicken are yummy, but I don't necessarily want those in everything I cook, especially since they have all sorts of additives in them.  True, I could make my own cream of mushroom or chicken from scratch, but that's an extra step I don't necessarily want to take.

So when I Googled "BBQ ribs" and this BBQ ribs recipe was hit #1, I knew I had to try it in the crockpot.  They say the best way to barbeque ribs is low and slow, so if a crockpot's high is about 300 degrees and its low is about 200 degrees, then this is another way to get low and slow.  And the bonuses here are that these ribs are delicious, they fall off the bone, it's super duper easy.
