Cut the 2 racks of baby back ribs into quarters and place them in a baking tray wrapped with aluminum foil. Next, brush some yellow mustard into the baby back ribs and rub 2 cups worth of brown sugar. Flip the baby back ribs and repeat the same process to the other side. After this, make the rib rub seasoning. In a small bowl, add 2 tsp of kosher salt, 2 tsp of black pepper, 2 tsp of smoked paprika, 1 tbsp of garlic powder, 1 tbsp of onion powder, 1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon, and 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper. Mix them well. Rub the seasoning mixture into the baby back ribs evenly. (Rub in both sides of the meat.)
Next, place the baby back ribs in a pre-grease crock pot. After this, pour 2 cups of Dr. Pepper all over the baby back ribs. Place 2 tbsp worth of sliced butter around the meat. Put the lid back on the crock pot and set it on low for about six to seven hours or high for four hours. (For this recipe, it was set on high for four hours.) After four hours, transfer the baby back ribs back to the baking tray wrapped with aluminum foil, then brush some barbecue sauce on them. Place them in a preheated broiler for about three to four minutes. After this, your baby back ribs are now ready to be served.
