Honey Chipotle Ribs

I decided to try a new ribs recipe when my husband requested them for dinner. I think good ribs are more about how you cook them than what sauce you use. Sauce is important, but there are plenty of good ones out there. The important thing is to cook your ribs until the meat falls off the bone--love the crock pot for that-- and then put it on the grill so that it has that crispiness. MMMM, crispy.

Honey Chipotle Ribs

2 racks baby back ribs, cut into 2 to 3 rib portions
Salt and pepper
1 1/2 cups ketchup
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 1/2 tablespoons Tabasco Chipotle Sauce, or to taste
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Heat oven to 375°.
Line a large baking sheet (with sides) with heavy duty foil. Place rib sections, rib sides down, on the baking sheet. Bake for 1 hour.

Combine remaining ingredients in a food processor or blender; process until smooth.

Transfer ribs to the slow cooker; cover with onions and pour the chipotle barbecue sauce over all. Cook on LOW for 8 to 10 hours, or HIGH for about 4 to 5 hours.
