  • 1 rack baby back ribs cut two pieces
  • 2 cups barbecue sauce I used Sweet Baby Rays
  • 12 ounces ginger beer or your favorite premium beer
  • 1 tbsp Montreal steak seasoning for ribs
  • 1 slices orange leave the peel on


  • rinse the ribs under cold running water, pat dry with paper towels
  • season the tops of the ribs with Montreal seasoning according to taste and place into slow cooker. Be careful too much seasoning will make these very peppery.
  • add barbecue sauce, ginger beer and orange slices into the slow cooker
  • turn on slow cooker to high setting and cook for 4 hours and 30 minutes for very tender ribs, 5 hours for fall off the bone ribs.
  • turn off the slow cooker and remove the cooking liquids and place in saucepan over high heat to reduce the sauce until it thickens, about 10 minutes.
  • Spoon some of the sauce over the ribs and if you want them to caramelize place them under the broiler for a few minutes.
  • Serve up your deliciousness with your favorite sides!
