Prep the ribs: remove silver skin and rub generously with dry rub of your choice.
Stand two racks of ribs upright in the crockpot, cutting in half if necessary to fit vertically. Pour in apple juice to the bottom. Cover and cook 4 hours or low or 2 1/2 hours on high or until meat is tender but not falling off the bone. Every crockpot is different, so you’ll have to double check your ribs for doneness.
Remove from crockpot, brush with BBQ sauce liberally on both sides and broil or grill. Cut into portions and serve.
LOWER CARB OPTION: To make this recipe have even less carbs, consider using chicken broth in place of the apple juice and a sugar free BBQ sauce to finish.
