Easy Barbecue Ribs

This recipe allows for a quick preparation of a slow cooked classic, perfect for those of us on the go!


  • A rack of your favorite ribs
  • 1 Lemon
  • McCormick Salad supreme seasoning
  • Black pepper
  • Liquid Smoke, 1 Tbsp.
  • Your favorite barbecue sauce (I like Kraft hickory Smoked right out of the bottle or make your own)


In the morning, or 4 to 5 hours before meal time, rinse the ribs under cold water. Sprinkle with seasoning and pepper. Roll the rack up jelly roll style and stand upright in your crock pot. Add the liquid smoke to the pot and squeeze the juice of the lemon over the rack. Put on the lid and cook on low for 4 to 6 hours.

The ribs will be tender, carefully unroll them and brush liberally with the barbecue sauce and grill over high heat, turning as you wish, till the ribs are cracklin' hot and the sauce is sizzling. Serve.

This is a quick version of this wonderful favorite for those of us that have little time on our hands and do not have the time to slow grill our ribs.

Servings: 4 to more
Time:5 Minutes Preparation Time
4 to 6 hours (Crockpot), 10 minutes at most (Grill) Cooking Time

Easy Barbecue Ribs

Hi Robin,

This sounds good, I think I've had ribs cooked with Coke before. I do have one question. You say to use 'small country style ribs'. Okay, so I haven't cooked ribs too often at home, but I'm not sure what you mean by 'small' that half a rack, one rack....???? I would think of baby back when I think small, but can't decide the rack size for the liquid ratio you give in the recipe.
