The membrane is at the back of the ribs. Take the membrane between thumb and forefinger and pull it lose. Ribs without a membrane absorbs the sauce better.

Remove the membrane from the ribs and put them in the Crockpot. Rub the brown sugar, a touch of Worcestershire sauce, the cayenne pepper and salt on the ribs.
Then pour the barbecue sauce on top of the ribs. Now close the Crockpot and it on. You have two options when you slow cook. You can put it on high or on low. If you also love your ribs to be fall of the bone set your slow cooker to:
- Turn to LOW: set the clock on 9 HOURS / Turn to HIGH: set the clock at 4½ HOURS
If you want soft ribs but like the meat to stay on the bone set your slow cooker to:
- Turn to LOW: set the clock on 7 HOURS / Turn to HIGH: set the clock at 3½ HOURS
In this recipe I put it on High for 4½ hours. Now preheat your oven and set it to broil. Put parchment paper on a baking tray. Take the barbecue ribs and put them on the baking tray.
Make sure the barbecue sauce is evenly distributed on the ribs and brush the sauce on the ribs. Broil the barbecue ribs for about 5 to 10 minutes until the sauce was bubbling and the edges a little charred.
Your Crockpot barbecue ribs are ready to serve.
