Zesty Baby Back Ribs

With a wind chill of -25, several inches of snow on the ground, and more winter weather in the days to come, all I can think about is summer. Maybe that's why I was craving ribs today. But this is no time to stand outside at the grill (even I could even get it lit with these winds!), so on to plan b.....

For the sauce.....
1/4 c brown sugar
2 Tablespoons paprika
1 Tablespoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon celery salt
1/4 c hot sauce
1 small onion, minced
salt and pepper

Cut rack of ribs down to individual portions. I did about three ribs in each portion Mix together sauce ingredients and slather on ribs.

Wrap the rib sections in foil. If you plan ahead, toss them in the crock pot on low for 8 hours. Or, if you're like me and planning dinner 8 hours ahead of time is nearly unheard of, place in baking dish and bake at 275 for 4 hours....then grab snacks for everyone to hold them over until the late dinner!

After cooking (either crock pot or oven), unwrap and brush on a little bit of barbecue sauce and put under the broiler for a couple of minutes.

These ribs are fall off the bone, finger licking good!
