  • 1/3 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon black pepper

Trim excess fat from ribs. Combine dry ingredients and rub over the surface of the ribs. Place ribs in slow cooker or Crock-Pot standing on their edge with the meaty side out. Cook for about 8 hours. Remove ribs from slow cooker and brush with barbecue sauce.
