      There is a print icon under every recipe, Ernest. If you click on it, you can remove the photo and any text you don’t want and print only the recipe.

  2. Kate Mattingly says:

    We are diabetic. Is there a substitute for the molasses or a good sugar-free BBQ sauce? Love BBQ ribs but the sauce is a too much for us.

  3. If I make these in the oven (I’m odd in that I’m not a huge fan of meat in the slow cooker) should I cover the dish with foil?

  4. Smoked ribs for Memorial Day so bought them at Costco last week. I thought the package had 2 racks in it, but turned out to be 3! Since it’s just my wife and me we can’t even make it through 1 rack of these HUGE racks. So I vacuum packed 2 of them for the freezer. I now know what I’m going to do with one of those racks. Thanks for this recipe.

  5. I used country bone-in pork chops, instead of ribs..I altered some ingredients – since I had to use what I had on hand (Creole Seasoning, no molasses) & doubled the ingredients (to taste) since I was making more meat. I also used a couple dashes of mesquite Liquid Smoke, set it for 6 hours in the crockpot and it was delish!! Very pleased 🙂 TY!

  6. I am loving your recipes! I used to collect regional cookbooks when traveling in the south. I now have so many more reasons to bring out the wooden spoons. Thank you for sharing.

  7. Might give it a try with beef short ribs, also.

  8. SO GOOD! GONNA SHARE THIS WITH MY DAUGHTER SHE HAS A NEW CROCKPOT

  9. Judy, these look fabulous! I think I’m going to prepare these for my family this week. Love a good country style pork ribs recipe! Thanks!

  10. We usually don’t eat ribs but I just may have to try this recipe! It looks delicious.

  11. thanks for the oven alternative! i thought I was going to have to buy a slow cooker.

  12. I think I need to try this next week. Anything cooked in the crock pot works for me! I love to walk in the door after a long day and know that dinner is almost done. 🙂

  13. You have my mouth watering at 7:30 in the morning! I think I’ll buy some country style ribs…Balisha
