Beasty BBQ Baby Back Ribs

Thanks to my awesome buddy Big Tim for the inspiration for this amazing recipe.  This is probably the simplest you can get ribs and they are just fall off the bone tender when done and you will devour them.  You need to have a batch of my Beasty BBQ Sauce on hand if you want them slathered in sauce or you can just use them with the dry rub if you prefer them that way.  Either way I hope you all love them and leave me some feedback.  Enjoy

Beasty BBQ Baby Back Ribs
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 2
  1. Combine all of your spices together in a mixing bowl and mix well
  2. Cut your ribs into sizes that are manageable in your crock pot, I have the crock pot listed above and only have to cut them in half so I had two rib slabs
  3. If you have the silver lining on the ribs remove it before applying your rub
  4. Apply your dry rub generously to your ribs and tightly wrap in plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for at least an hour but feel free to leave it for a couple of days to absorb all that flavor
  5. Place your ribs bone side down in the crockpot stacked on top of each other and place ⅛ Cup water in the bottom to get the cooking process started
  6. Set your crock-pot on low and cook for 8 hours
  7. If you are around, every hour or so rotate your ribs so that they continue to self baste each other with one on top of the other
  8. Around hour 7 or 8, using a basting brush generously lather on the Beasty BBQ sauce and leaving the ribs in the pot for however long it takes to warm the sauce up
  9. Enjoy

  1. I’ve made these before for just Me, Myself and I. Today I’m making them for my mom for Mother’s Day. So fricken delish!

  2. Have you considered bottling and selling your BBQ sauce? Its much better than the bottled Paleo sauces Ive bought before, but a hassle to make all the time. I would definitely always keep a bottle in the fridge!

  3. I just made these but did them on the grill over low, indirect heat for about 5 hours. The rub was enough for the 3 slabs of ribs that I had, and I basted them with the BBQ sauce. Came out fantastic!!!

  4. I chuckled when I saw the picture that went with the rib recipe. Then I made them!!!! My plate looks like your picture plus lick marks…OK, maybe gross-but true. Exceptional yum! Best ribs I’ve ever made Paleo or not.

    Love your recipes. You’ve re-inspired me to get back on track, thank you.

  5. Making these ribs now. I felt like the amount of rub created by your recipe was way more than I needed for one rack of ribs. I could have easily coated 2 racks so I’m going to save the rest for another rack this week.

  6. I have been keeping up with your blog for some time now and I have to say I used this recipe for the ribs this past Valentines day, and both my girlfriend and I were amazed at how good the ribs tasted. I actually suffered a C.Difficle infection for a year and to avoid forming any type of IBD I took my health into my own hands and decided to start eating paleo. I love your site and I love what you are doing for the Paleo Community. Thanks for all of your work.

  7. These ribs are fabulous! The Beasty BBQ sauce was a bit too hot for me but I put on some Black Cherry BBQ sauce from Whole Foods on them and the sweetness of the sauce combined with the heat of the rub was the perfect combo!!! I'm salivating just thinking about how good they were.

  8. I just figured out how to post again! My ribs turned out excellent! I'm not a big bbq sauce fan and I LOVED the Beasty BBQ sauce. The meat fell off the bone.
