Slow Cooked Pork Ribs with Spicy Barbecue Sauce

Beth Ribblett

Every Sunday our group of friends holds a potluck dinner to bring us all together for a meal and a few bottles of wine, ending the week on a positive note. This week our offering was a big crock pot full of slow cooked pork ribs with a homemade barbecue sauce. I used a some smoked salt I bought at Whole Foods to give the ribs a little extra pop.

Great food, fun and lots of laughter, shared with people you love, a wonderful way to end the week!
