I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Tender, tender, tender. Between the brining and the slow cook, these ribs are so tender. They are also very good.

~Mix 1 cup kosher salt & 1 quart water into a large bowl.
~Submerge ribs into salt water, and let brine for 2-5 hours.
~Remove ribs from brine and rinse well.
~Dry off ribs with paper towels.
~In a small bowl mix, brown sugar, paprika, garlic salt, onion powder, & black pepper.
