1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (adjust to taste, or omit)

1/2 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp cinnamon

3-4 pounds baby back ribs,

cut into small sections

1 medium onion, sliced

In a small bowl, combine all spices.  In a large bowl, place ribs and drizzle with oil.  Sprinkle the spice mixture onto the ribs and stir well to coat.  Spray a  foil-lined baking sheet with no-stick spray and arrange rib pieces in a single layer.  Bake for about 15 minutes at 400 degrees F.  Turn and bake another 10 minutes.    Place the sliced onion to cover the bottom of the slow cooker.  Transfer ribs to the slow cooker.

1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

2 tbsp packed brown sugar

1 tbsp hot sauce, adjust up or down to taste

Pour sauce over ribs in slow-cooker and cook on low for about 5 hours.  Meat should be very tender and starting to fall off the bones.
