David's BBQ Country Style Ribs

This recipe should be started about 1:00 PM for a 5:00 PM Dinner. In a crock pot put 3 pounds of the leanest country style ribs you can find. Put a little salt, pepper and thyme on the ribs. Add about 3/4 cup water. Cook on "high" until 4 PM.

Put in a roasting pan and cook in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes, basting with a little of the juices. The remaining juices can be retained for gravy. For the last 15 minutes of baking, brush on the barbecue sauce, recipe below.

1/2 cup catsup
1/2 cup commercial hickory-flavor barbecue sauce
(I use Hunts)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup dark honey

Combine ingredients in a small saucepan, and simmer for a few minutes over low heat to make certain the sugar is dissolved.
