Crock Pot Jamaican Barbecue Ribs

Barbecue ribs - jerk style!

Bbq cooking inside? Sure! Even easier, try it in the cock pot. You can make all kinds of barbecued ribs recipes in your slow cooker. These barbecue ribs have a tangy sauce with traditional jerk seasoning, popular in Jamaican and other Caribbean cuisine. For this recipe, you can use your favorite jerk seasoning, or give mine a try. It works well with baby back ribs, spare ribs, or country-style ribs. If someone in the family doesn’t like jerk seasoning, leave it off some of the ribs. The meat will still be flavorful with just the sauce.
