These award winning Blue Ribbon BBQ Ribs are possibly some of the best ribs I have ever had. They literally fall off the bone and melt in your mouth. Mmmm.
These BBQ Ribs remind me a lot of Texas Roadhouse ribs, but better. They are smothered in a sweet and tangy barbecue sauce that is so easy to make. You start with baby back pork ribs that are slow cooked for hours making them oh so tender and juicy and cooked to perfection. Then they are finished off over the grill, giving the outside layer that desired crisp texture and layers and layers of cooked on sweet BBQ sauce. If you cook them directly over the grill the whole time, they tend to dry out and stick to the bone, but if you slow cook them first, they stay nice and juicy and fall off the bone. You still want to finish with the grilling thought to get that caramelized crispy BBQ layer on the outside.
These ribs are sure to win first prize at your next family BBQ. They will love the sweet sauce and won’t be able to stop licking their messy fingers. You will love how easy these are to make and how fast these disappear, we never have left overs.
Our good friend, Jordan, was kind enough to share his recipe with us. He made them for us when we all used to live in Spokane and I had to have the recipe, they were so good! They definitely get the “FavFamilyRecipes” blue ribbon because they were simply amazing. Thanks Jordan!

Blue Ribbon BBQ Ribs
Rub ribs with seasoning and place in large crock pot (you may have to cut the ribs up so they all fit). Pour in water and cook on low heat for 6-8 hours, until ribs are cooked through and they are already starting to fall off the bone.
Combine BBQ sauce, sugar, and Worcestershire sauce in medium-sized bowl. Heat grill to medium-high heat and place 2-3 ribs sections on at a time, slathering completely with BBQ sauce mixture.Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, until it gets that good BBQ flavor and BBQ sauce gets cooked onto the meat.
Place finished ribs on upper rack of grill to keep warm and to keep getting that smokey flavor while you are grilling the other ribs. Serve hot with remaining BBQ sauce.
