  • 2 tbsp. paprika
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. ground chipotle pepper
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • 3/4 tsp. dried thyme
  • 4 lb. boneless country-style pork ribs
  • 1 18oz bottle barbecue sauce
  • 3/4 c. amber beer or reduced-sodium chicken broth


  1. Start by preheating your broilers.
  2. Combine paprika, brown sugar, salt, garlic powder, chili powder, onion powder, ground chipotle pepper, pepper, and thyme in a bowl until thoroughly blended.
  3. Line a pan with aluminum foil and place the ribs in the pan. If you’re working with a small oven, you can easily cut the ribs into shorter sections to make them fit more comfortably.
  4. Rub the seasoning into the meat, being sure to coat them completely.
  5. Add to the broiler for 2-3 minutes, flip, and cook another 2-3 minutes.
  6. Using a 5 qt. slow cooker, add all of the ribs to the pot.
  7. In a separate bowl, whisk the BBQ sauce and beer (or broth) together.
  8. Pour over the ribs and place the lid on the slow cooker.
  9. Cook on low for 3-4 hours.
  10. Remove the ribs from the juice and set aside.
  11. Carefully skim the fat from the juices and serve with the ribs as a sauce.
