Okay, looking for a little advice here. Back before I started smoking stuff, I found a recipe for country style ribs that involves putting them in a slow cooker, or "Crock Pot" it was always called as I was growing up. The recipe says to take the ribs, put them in the slow cooker with a cut-up onion and bbq sauce. Then cook for 8 hours on "low". Cooking the ribs this way always turns out well, and I get subtle hints from family members if I go more than a few weeks without cooking a batch. The ribs are definately moist and tender, but to me just lack that good smokey flavor. This morning I cooked up a batch for 6 hours in the slow-cooker, then moved them to the smoker for about an hour and a half. I didn't wrap them in foil or anything, just put them on the racks and filled up the water pan. This was the best batch I've made yet, in my opinion, but it still seems they could be a bit better. Any suggestions for improvement? Would it maybe be better to use a rub on the ribs instead of the bbq sauce and onion in the slow cooker? Sorry, realize this is kinda long, but would appreciate any suggestions.
