Slow Cooker Summer Zesty Pork Ribs

Zesty BBQ Ribs

Zesty BBQ Ribs


The Zesty BBQ Pork Ribs from the recipe on Who Needs a Cape is delicious. We did fix it a little differently than the recipe called for. Since it was a Saturday when we fixed this, my son opted to use the smoker instead of the slow cooker. That is his favorite thing to do, and he has to do it on a day when we are home all day. We made the marinade and let the ribs sit in it for about 3 hours. Then he prepared the smoker and got the ribs going. Since he was going to be outside anyway, I soaked whole ears of corn in water for about 2 hours. Then he grilled them on the grill that is a part of our smoker unit. It took about 3 hours to cook the ribs, and it took about 35 minutes to grill the corn. If I were to lok at this from the time-saving aspect, this is certainly not a time-saving way to cook. But it was something my son wanted to do, and it took minimal supervision on my part for him to cook for us. I would say this is a part of Giving Your Children Wings that I talk about in my book. He is learning skills to last a lifetime.
