Al O'Neal is my trusty right arm. He's my sales manager, my replacement host when I'm away from the show and a good friend. He's also a very good cook! But he's like most of us guys - the easier the recipe is, the better the recipe is. He mentioned this recipe in passing last month when he was filling in for me and we had several requests for it from the neighbors. It's especially good for today's busy lifestyles because it's so simple. Many thanks Al. Keep up the good work - Bob.

6-8 short ribs
2-3 T. brown sugar
1 bottle of barbecue sauce

Mix the sauce and sugar together. Dip the short ribs into the sauce and place them in the slow cooker. Pour the remaining sauce over the ribs and cook on low about 8 hours.
