Go to Winco and get riblets in the bag. I got a bag the other day for 89 cents per pound! Get a bottle of your favorite bbq sauce, a six pack of Dr. Pepper, an onion, some spices and put your grill and crock pot to work.
Dr. Pepper-BBQ Riblets in the Crock Pot
4 pounds pork riblets
1 tablespoon cumin
Garlic salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1 small yellow onion, halved and sliced into half-moons
1 (18 ounce) bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce. I like a honey-based barbecue sauce for this.
1 can Dr. Pepper, or more, as needed. You want plenty of liquid, but not so much that it overflows during cooking.
Slice the ribs to a manageable size. I usually slice mine in half, or thirds, depending how big they are.
Combine cumin, pepper, garlic salt, poultry seasoning, onion powder and garlic powder and rub onto riblets.
On your barbecue, grill the riblets on each side, just enough to give them some good color and a little char.
Layer the onions and riblets in your crock. Add the barbecue sauce and Dr. Pepper. Be sure to coat all of the meat evenly.
Cook on low for 8 hours.
Remove riblets to a serving platter and coat with the cooking sauce.
