Looking for rib recipes

I am in need of some really good rib recipes. I've been putting them in my crockpot and dumping BBQ sauce on them, but they've not turned out very well. I was hoping someone here had some recipes they could share.

Beer Bread Recipe

I just found out that my neighbor's birthday is tomorrow, so I decided to finally make the beer bread I've been promising him. I thought I'd share it with LJ.

I don't like the taste of beer though I do like cooking with it. This bread has been a hit with everyone I've ever given it to, even those who swear they hate beer. This is good with butter or a cheese spread.

Beer Bread

3 cups self-rising flour
3 Tbsp. white sugar
12 oz. beer
1/4 cup melted butter.


Combine beer, flour, sugar. Mix well. Put into greased and floured baking pan.
Pour melted butter over the top. Stick into 375 degree F oven for 45-60 minutes.

1 19.5 oz. box fudge brownie mix
1/4 cup butter, melted
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 egg
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. In medium bowl, beat brownie mix, melted butter, cream cheese, and egg 50 strokes with a spoon until well blended. (dough will be sticky)

Onto ungreased cookie sheets, drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls, 2 inches apart, to make 24 cookies. Smooth edge of each to form round cookie.

In small bowl, mix powdered sugar and peanut butter with spoon until mixture forms a ball. With hands, roll rounded teaspoonfuls into 24 balls. Lightly press 1 ball into center of each ball of dough.

Bake 10 to 14 minutes or until edges are set. Cool cookies on cookie sheets at least 30 minutes.

Remove cooled cookies from cookie sheets. Spread thin layer of frosting over peanut butter portion of each cooled cookie.

High Altitude (3,500-6,500 ft.): Before baking, flatten cookies slightly. Bake 11 to 15 minutes.

Chicken and Dumplings Recipe

This is the easiest chicken and dumplings recipe to make, plus it's quick. I keep the ingredients for it stocked at all times for nights when I want to make something that doesn't take long or I just need a good warm-me-up food.
I got the original recipe from the side of the frozen biscuit package, and then I modified it into something I like better. The recipe here is my version.
